    I have been working on a 3D printed fan that will help reduce thermal and power limit throttling. It is powered by usb and can be plugged into the SP3. It simply and clips onto the side of the SP3 and can be used with the dock (I don't have a dock but using pics from the web I made sure it didn't interfere). I am still doing a bit more tweaking but here are some pics and the results playing Skyrim and running XTU tests:
