    I have a Lenovo u530 and I would like to install two jet-flow 120mm fans but I cannot find a connector that would fit. I need a y-connector at at least, could anyone point me in the right direction? Here are some pictures ImageUploadedByWindowsForum1445306995.825840. ImageUploadedByWindowsForum1445307024.471559.

    1). Need connectors
    2). If jet flow won't work is ther another fan I could use?

    Thank you in advance any help is appreciated!

    But even if I could get a y connector for the current fan that would work as well jet flow was just my unrealistic idea

    Yes but it's from running games bc Intel sucks at games even if I could find a small computer fan like internal that would help but the thing is the y connector

    ime any (non-stock) thing you add to a laptop needs power and lappys only have so much to give... in the long run it's cheaper to buy a gaming rig than to try and make one from bits and bobs mate.

    In my opinion, the last thing you want to do is to make Motherboard mods to a laptop. Norway is right about that; and there are no GOOD gaming laptops on the market today, and haven't been for 15 yrs. If you build a Custom-rig with a standard computer case in mid-tower or full-tower size configuration, this is your only option for no overheating airflow design. Anything you plug into the laptop Mobo will likely draw more power than the laptop was designed for, and either short it out or burn it to a crisp. I've seen folks do this, so if you are not particularly fond of that laptop and don't mind replacing it--then do monkey around with adding devices to the Mobo. (though it might be easier to find a really high building or bridge and just toss it off the edge into space). :\
