*wanted* line drawing for 50mm to 60mm fan adapter

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I plan on buying the ASUS Sabertooth P67 and as you may or may not know it can mount a 50mm fan on the board it's self. How ever after reading online it seems that 50mm fans don't actually do much for the board and the few that do sound like a jet.

I wanted to put a 60mm fan on it instead but I cant find any 50-60mm fan adapter. I was wondering if anyone in the community could do up a line drawing for me(payment via pay-pal pm for details) so I can get one made at the local machine shop. Not just a steal plate with the holes in it but something with a low-profile conical shape much like the low profile Bgears 140-120mm adapter (only smaller naturally)

Even if someone had a line (tech) drawing/diagram for one of the other larger adapters like 80-92mm and so on would be a help. I could simply scale it down. But I am not able to find a line (tech) drawing/diagram for a fan adapter online anyplace.

I believe it well make a large impact on the board's cooling if I can get the adapter built.

Thats a nice adapter, but how about an acrylic one?

Something like this?

I might look into drawing something up using Autodesk Inventor sometime - I have the same motherboard and I have tried 4 different models of 50mm fans from EVERCOOL, Rasurbo, and JustCool and all of them have gone "buzzy" within a month or so. These things have been driving me crazy so now I'm just running my system without the assist fan - if I have the spare time I'll see if I can draw up a 50mm to 60mm adapter for machining. If I end up forgetting about it - many of the machine shops I've known in the past have quite a bit of CAD expertise and could probably just make this sort of thing up for you if you tell them what you want.

You don't really need all that powerful of a fan to make a huge impact on the cooling as it just needs a bit of air flowing by, but it seems like for whatever reason all the 50mm fans on the market just suck completely.

Alright I actually went and got my adapter design machined for me by onlinemachinist.com for about $50 shipped, which is pretty reasonable for a one-off project.
I've linked to a gallery of the finished product and attached a .pdf of the technical drawing for anyone who still cares.

Note that I'm still waiting on my 60mm Vantec Stealth fan to arrive, once it's here I'll post pictures with everything installed onto my motherboard.
UPDATE: Gallery now has pictures with everything installed and my 60mm fan is generating some serious airflow!

Notice that the design is quite a bit different than conventional fan adapters - this is because of the mounting scheme needed to attach a fan to this motherboard. If you think about it for a bit you'll see what I'm talking about.

Did you ever find a 50mm to 60mm adapter? I have the Shuttle SX79R5 PC, and the 50mm Power Supply fan is too loud. It seems all the high quality quiet fans are 60mm only. If I could find an adapter, I'd put the 60mm fan on the outside of the compact Power Supply.
