Steam Deck Runs 32% Cooler With PC Liquid Cooler Mod

Vietnam’s TikToker has gone to great lengths to fit a full-fledged 240mm AIO liquid cooler into their Steam Deck handheld game console. video It shows the whole creation process. This included building a custom baseplate for the deck and drilling some holes in the rear clamshell to make room for the AIO. But that hard work resulted in a 32% thermal drop, giving the Steam Deck’s tiny Van Gough APUs plenty of thermal headroom to reach their peak boost clocks.

Despite its success, this mod was not for the faint of heart and required the Steam deck’s hull to be punctured and damaged. If you care about the longevity of your Steam decks, this probably shouldn’t be tried.
