Cooling the HTC Vive Wireless Adapter

I've had problems with the HTC Vive Wireless Adapter overheating for a while and mounted fans on top of it which cooled it down but still had instability with sudden power outages. Moving the fans from the 5V output to the 12V input (so that it doesn't require any power from the wireless adapter itself) appears to have helped.
