for ppl w/ a 8rda+ and 40mm fan lookin to cool the NB

with the help of someone at overclockers i did this nifty thing w/ zip ties and now my nb is nice and cool!
this is a good mod that everyone should be able to do if they have a spare 40mm fan. my prob before is that i didnt want to cut a fan hole into the side of my case (because i added a real nice window) and there was no place in my case to put a 80mm....

here is a pic:

or if you position it right you can actually screw it on as the heatsink fins provide a nice tight grip and work with screws quite nicely.

I used smaller black zip ties and got it perfectly centered on the NB heat sink and rotated them so you can't see the ends so you have to look hard to spot them No matter how I oriented it I could not screw to the NB with the fan I used and I did not want to glue it on or tape it. It's a quick down and dirty way to keep the NB nice and cool
