Building a Laptop Cooling stand

Recently I've been having problems with Vista shutting down whenever it wants to, So i did some research. Turns out its due to the system overheating, as I push the most out of my 256mb Card and dual core processor. My old Xbox 360 "Died" Due to overheating, so i thought, "Why not build a Cooling stand out of my old shell?" Oh the irony. So i has hoping you guys could point me in the right direction as far as Fans, and what i would need to hook up these fans to an outlet, what kind of DC Converter to get, Etc. Thanks for Any Replies!

P.s. Some fans with LED's in them would we sweet, it would give the Shell a great look. I don't have the DVD drive, so there a hole in the front pf the shell. Anything i could do about that to make it look Unique?

  1. If you want to save yourself a lot of trouble, you can just buy a laptop cooling pad. They are usually USB powered, so you wouldn't have to mess around with plugging things into the wall and such.
