My brother has an older gaming laptop that has issues keeping the GPU's cool. Instead of re-pasting the heat syncs and blowing out the dust once a week, I offered to make him an enclosure and set up a liquid cooled system. Now to make this dream come true, I purchased a low wattage PSU to power two multi-volt fans for the enclosure, the radiator fan, and some UV lighting (all run through a fan controller). Since I can't attach the PSU to the motherboard, I was planning on doing a standard green-black jump, allowing the PSU to run. I've checked online and there seems to be mixed feelings about using the jumping method over long periods of time. Is the low voltage going to kill my power supply or can I just run more off the unit to hopefully keep it alive??
