Thrustmaster T300 overheating

Hi everyone,

I bought a Thrustmaster T300 a few months ago and i've always had this issue where the force feedback would just become super weak after a few laps of racing due to the force feedback motor overheating (even with the settings turned down to 85 percent). I replaced the stock fan with a Noctua NF-A6X25 FLX 60mm fan, which didn't solve the problem. Then i did this:
I added the 2 extra fans, drilled the holes on the top grill and the noctua fan is still running as well, but it just doesn't seem to make any difference whatsoever.

Is there anyone who has managed to cool this wheelbase enough to have some consistent force feedback?

Did you originally have the fan set in the firmware to run all the time? I do this and never have a problem with my T300 overheating or losing FFB intensity.

Nope, nothing will fix the pos. I also tried fixing the damn thing with various solutions like yours (fan, extra fan, holes etc) and ended up binning the thing. TM shouldnt be allowed to sell this.
