Custom heatsink for Wii?

Would it be ethical to design a custom heatsink for a Wii? I’m thinking of turning the cooling into a push/pull config, and it will require a different heatsink(?). Does anyone have an internal diagram sso that I can see the style of heatsink and where it’s positioned?

Is this a good question?

It's entirely possible to do a heatsink for any kind of console, not so long ago LinusTechTips water cooled a PS4 with a closed loop system. Would be an interesting project to say the least.

My only suggestion is to look at steps 18 and 19 on this guide as a photographic reference. Hope that helps.

Thanks for your answer! Unfortunately the Wii has a custom EMI shield as well, so I'd have to make a new one too. And the fan's output voltage/amperage would probably be limited as well.
