Yes. I bought a really cheap one USB 'n' wifi dongle and I plan to try it with the broadcom chip in my current motherboard, just out of curiosity to see if/how well it works. I'm still going to replace the motherboard, but I will try that first.
i dont have the panel yet it will take around 3 weeks to buy it, it costed around 5$ (no inport taxes)

i currently use a hdd cooler, so i might not need the spare panel, or the panel mod at all, (i dont use my mini all the time, so cant test hdd cooler efficiency)

---------------------
edit:
after 1.5 hours of cooling there is no feelable temperature change, normaly its get significally warmer
will leave my mini running for will keep it running for a few hours longer, to see if there is any more change.

the cooler cost around 10$ (no fan grill version)
fan grill version cost around 15$

you can get cheaper ones for 5$ from ebay, but i dont know if they are good, due them being mass produced and from a no-name brand
----------------------------
edit, today my 2nd panel came in the mail, will look at modding it in a few weeks, when my thermal pads i ordered today come in


dell mini 910
supertalent dual wide ssd 128GB
2GB ddr2 400mhz ram
Realtek RTL8188SU
(not the 3G version)
hdd cooler as extra cooling
