No offense but, i didnt ask if the fan will work viably. i simply want to know the dangers of not keeping that bottom cover on the DVD drive. OH well, someone will know im sure = ) thank you for the help though. ill post pics if all settles through, and there are no apparent dangers to not having that bottom tray on there.
Technically there isnt any danger if you did take off the bottom cover, aslong as the heatsink doesnt touch the above circuit board i think it will be fine. Heat is no problem. Just make sure nothing (conductive) is touching the bottom of the circuit or u may end up shorting it.
