Side Panel Fan Electrical Contact - Reopening an old discussion with additional details

Hi All!

I saw this
Looking for: A Side Panel Fan Electrical Contact
started on 04/08/10 last post 04/09/10 at 9:14am 15 replies 2115 views
when doing some research on my own regarding this.

I am currently in the process of modding and building out a Corsair 750D to a enthusiast gaming PC (~2K). I am not watercooling, but using multiple fans and a custom designed desk to increase airflow significantly. One addition which was recommended to me was adding a side fan.

I really do not want to "strategically place" a cable on the side panel which runs into the chassis which is unplugged upon removing the side panel. Instead I would like to use an electrical contact system to which allows me to remove the panel at will without having to disconnect anything. This is purely out of convenience and isn't necessary to complete the build however would be wicked cool to have in it.

I know the Alienware had a proprietary solution (pics attached) however this is discontinued, and the parts would have to be purchased on eBay/Alibaba sketchy places.

Also - superglue and the fan cables/connectors to the side panel in case is a no go... smile.gif.

I am aware some Thermaltake cases had this, but I am in love with the 750D... smile.gif

I highly doubt there are kits available but don't even know where to start looking...

Thoughts?!

Thanks!

you *could* re-purpose a hot swap drive bay

or use 3.5 jacks & ports or even "tulip" jacks & ports ...

when fitted at the right spot, when you push & slide the sidepanel in place , the jacks slip into the ports

not rocket science... if you really feel desperate.. use ordinary wall-plug jack & extension cable smile.gif
