You still need a few more for maximum cooling:

That is some proper engineering. Well done.

Thanks, but I'm really not liking the bulkiness of it all. Testing a complete shrink down now. Hopefully its just as effective and not as blocky. This time instead of using someone elses model, im making my own.

Simplicity all the way!

I'm sure If TTL wanted to donate all those, I would have space in the case to make it all fit . But would need to bolt it down so it doesnt take off.

I've still been brainstorming and focussing on the front fan tray. Taking the premade one previously and trying to make it more appealing. So far my attempts have caused the frame to lose the rigidity of the original design.

Not going to give up however as its still good practise for me measuring parts and designing on the fly. Very fun.

Started with this design and worked from there.



First issue i see which is a limitation on my printer skills is having the logo protruding from the base lacked accurate details. So I decided to cut into the base intead. furthermore, I didnt like seeing empty gaps between the fans so wanted them covered up.

Behold version 2.



Also in white



I toyed with the idea to use an ironing technique for the top layers, but they were not to my liking. What I have noticed is the finished/texture of the PLA thats in contact with the build plate has no lines, or less signs its a 3D print, so i flipped the connector upside down on the printer.

Also attempted to print the interior logo with white PLA. and tried one pair face up and one pair face down so see how the finish looked




printing face down gave a much nicer finish.






My next problem is the sticker on the back of these fans being orientated at different angles. So I wanted to make these uniform and even. Since I haven't decided which way up the fans will be yet (depends on routing of wires) I'll add the next steps after its assembled.

Using the same logo I created some Corsair fan discs

Corsair POG champ



As they were only 1mm thick, cutting the logo into the print didnt look right so I opted for making the logo cut right through the design.

That leaves the hideous corsair stickers still visible. I figured I would leave it on and instead find a way to cover it. Decided on some mirror vinyl I still had from a while ago.






As you can see the disc is slightly too small. So I have since reprinted them all 1mm wider (not pictured)
