the heatsink is fitted in a hole in the plexi so that it sticks up just enough to make contact with the heat "plate" for lack of a better term. (the aluminium plate that the graphics chip heatsink hits to get the heat out of the computer) i was also thinking about cutting the plastic off the bottom of the computer so that the heat plate is exposed and would come in dirrect contact with the heatsink on the lappy colling pad. but i decided against that cause i dont want a hole in the bottom of my lappy. but any way the heatsink sitts directly on the heatplate on the bottom of the lappy which is why i decided to do this in the first place cause it gets hot enough to burn my leg a bit when watching movies for an hour or so.
