Revamping laptops

This fun project is turning old Panasonic laptops - powered by the Broadwell i3-5010U - into fanless HTPCs. Motherboards, which are actually quite small, are rehoused in acrylic cases and paired with server heat sinks. Unfortunately, thermals are far from great mostly due to the difficulty of mounting such coolers on tiny SoCs. Which is a shame because these chunky pieces of hardware could probably handle the 15W TDP in the right conditions.
