Hardware Has anyone tried a back shell mod that gives more airflow to the cooler fan?

I've overclocked my Switch, and after using it and noticing the fan getting loud under heavier overclocks, I removed the back shell completely and found the fan to be about 20% quieter (overclock would take fan to 100%, but now only takes it to 80%). This got me wondering if anyone had done a back shell mod where you gave more airflow directly over the input for the cooler fan? If anyone has done it, can I see pictures and what you did?

Thanks

you might be better getting a switch stand, i got the hori one as it doesnt restrict much, and then get a usb c extension cable, i got a braided one for mine but its too stiff, this would give it some breathing room and wouldnt need the back taken off, could also stick a fan under it as theres room for a small 100mm or so , or like ive done just get a cheap usb fan and stick that behind the console, i dont think its dropped temps that much, but its at least keeping the sd card slot and shell a bit cooler.
