    Hello,
    I think cooling my portable wii may be interesting.

    I thought of a few idea to do so.

    The easy one is using the original cooler, maybe bent the heatsink fins and add a fan.

    I have this laptop cooler too that would have a good enough fit after modifications and may be cooler that using the original heatsink.

    The best would be to have it passively cooled, I plan to do some tests with a piece of a nas case.
    Because I plan to cut a gamecube controller in 2 pieces and put a 7 inch screen in the middle, I'll have plenty of space and I could put the aluminium piece as the back of the portable.
    If you know that would be enaugh however, I'll have to do some testing.

    Use a small Noctua (iirc that is what they’re called) fan, and im pretty sure it’ll be fine to cut up the wii’s heatsink

    Thank you for your answer,
    I guess that the flx in 5V is enough?
    Or do I have to take the 5v max speed?

    Depends on the noctua fan. If you get one, make sure its small enough to fit and support 5v
