Making a cooling pad

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I'm living in a smallish city in Italy, and can't find much in the way
of cooling pads available. So far I have found just one, which was
passive, and expensive (50 euro). So I am considering just making one

I was considering taking a steel panel, bending into the right shape,
and then mounting a couple of fans underneath, taking power from
either a usb port, or a separate power pack.

Does anyone have any suggestions, advice or resources you can point me
to regarding this?
