Hey guys, welcome aboard into my watercooled upgraded mediumRig Laptop Project. So, lets go deep...

Laptop: NP300E4C-AD5BR SAMSUNG i5-3210M (actually 6GB of RAM running over 667 MHZ DDR3)
Upgrades: i7-3940XM WaterCooling + 1060 3GB EXPGDC + 16 GB of RAM running over 1600 MHZ DDR3)

Everything is being bought from AliExpress and here goes the link for my parts PublicList: PARTSLIST

Questions:
1. My first concern about the whole project is the Laptop Mobo TDP resistance, cause 3210M its a 35W TDP processor and on the other side 3940XM is a 55W TDP processor. I'v saw threads in web about 10W or 15W upgrades in laptop processor but nothin about 20W or plus. The good point is that the extra heat is not a problem cause everything is going to be waterCooled and also the mobo TDP used by the internal cooling system will be free to be allocated. What u guys think?
2. Fans and Bombs uses PWM to regulate the frequency / power they are set to atm, but my mobo only has one PWM port (like any other mobo), if i do use the PWM mirroing (chip is located at the parts list) it will work flawlessly regulating both FANS speed and Bomb force?

If u guys have anything to add or a to point a problem that i will might have but its not listed feel free to comment here, everyone is welcome to leave their opinion about the project, also helps me polish it XD
