    Do it again with the heat-pipes and heat-sinks from AliExpress. I want to get some for use with the Google Daydream View, where my Pixel phones overheats all the time.

    Ohh, I guess this is the idea of the Nubia Red Magic 3 phone. It's apparently a gaming phone with really great specs and is going to have an inbuilt fan which i suppose will stop it from thermal throttling . I didn't see the point of it until I saw this video 👍

    No no no Linus. You see the real mobile gamer would have some sort of performance beverage to sip through the tubing during high temp scenarios.

    Now you just need to put the watercooling into a fancy box and add a big powerbank with 3 USB ports to power your phone, the fan and the pump and mobile gaming becomes mobile gaming again ;-)

    You could always just get a low profile fan attached to the inside of the case. Sure the case will have more depth but eh.

    If the heatsink was centered on in the middle of the phone would it get better cooling since the hot spot would be directly under where the two pipes converge?
