Noob here, but I'm trying my hardest so please help me with your superior experience if you can
Since 240 - 100v stepdown converters are like golddust, I'm using a 240 - 110v stepdown to run my Japanese Dreamcast in the UK. I have successfully turned the thing on without it going boom, but as expected, the fan is working a little harder than usual to keep everything cool. Since even on the correct voltage, games consoles can easily overheat and break themselves, I want to do everything I can to protect my Dreamcast, so I've bought a cooling fan tray designed for laptops in the hope of keeping the unit cool.
My question is: since the Dreamcast fans pump air out of the sides of the unit, and the laptop tray fans pump air into the bottom, is this an effective solution? Is it going to create a lovely airflow in and out of the Dreamcast, or will the laptop tray fans counteract the work being done by the Dreamcast fan?
