Quicker/easier access to HDDs, cleaning, fan replacement.

Just because YOU don't need that doesn't mean others wouldn't. My gratings full of dust every week or 2 & i have to pull my whole PC out from beside my desk/TV, unplug the whole damn thing (cause the cords don't stretch more than 1.5"), pull off the side panel and try to maneuver around my HDDs to clean out all the dust the intake fan deposits there.

If I could just yank a dust cover or the fan itself for that matter it'd make cleaning INFINITELY easier for me.

See attachment for a pic of my case & the lovely dust it collects on the front intake.



P.S. Damn cats.....

Okay but how is he going to implement whatever that is?




Just get a fan controller, take out the PCB and innards and then screw it onto the case... That should do what Thermaltake has done, same thing, no?

Nice helpful post by Full Tilt.

Use a fan controller and undervolt them to below the starting voltage.

Now see, I would've thought you'd want to pump the voltage as high as it can go for those....

Lol I have an air compressor, and an air blow gun. it works great for cleaning a fully assembled computer. i just did my media computer last weekend. Took all of one hour, this includes disconnecting and reconnecting the computer from my monitor and stuff.

Hot Swap is when you can swap out parts while the system is running.
Just grow a set of Test Eagles and pull the plug out while the system is switched on and bob's your uncle you have hot swappable fans.

Or better yet make or buy 20cm 3 and 4 pin extenders for ease of access.
