OCN Fan grill

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
First off, I wasn't sure where to post this, so please move it if needs be smile.gif

Now, I know that FTWPC has done an OCN fan grill, but I wanted to do my own little design. So I fired up my autocad and did a little drafting. Then I printed the design in 1:1 scale to get an accurate representation. The pics are just the paper mock-ups, but I think I'm going to make them in transluscent light blue acrylic.

The point of this post is to hear your opinions on the design, so let me know what you think! biggrin.gif

I would do it so only the edges are there, it looks cool, but very restrictive.

I like it a bit. However I'm concerned if you have high flow fans, may give you a bit of sound pollution.

Hmmmm... I think I'm going to try what joe suggested also.

I'm not entirely sure about the restriction thing. I want to try it out and see.

Any other ideas you guys want to see in fan grill form? I have room for 7 others. (9 to a sheet) I think I might have a few ideas.

Thanks for the feedback guys thumbsupsmiley.png

EDIT:

Outlined version done!

I think it might be kinda fragile though.

Be mindful when using logo's from other companies. FTW PC has been granted special permission to create Overclock.net branded fan grills.

If you're interested in OCN fan grills that you don't see offered by FTW PC, we can work with you to make the custom grill of your choice.
