I read every page of this thread, and I was really impressed and this idea MS
I'm really anxious to see the back of the motor though, because I'm wondering wether or not you will be able to fit the fan back up (does the hdd motor fit perfectly inside)?
And for the people saying that this fan couldnt pass 2000RPM.
All I have to say is; WAKE UP, and stop hating.
I have a 5200RPM SKT462 fan, and this thing IS spinning about that speed, I'm sure you have fans that run at that speed as well. And if you can differenciate the sound of AIR, from that of a motor, you'll realize that thing thing is moving major air.
I MEAN, LOOK at the air that thing is creating. :|
AS for that "fastest 120MM fan" PIC, and the "big motor"
WE ARENT ACTUALLY SEEING THE MOTOR :| - thats just its enclosure.
I'd say, its at least clocking 3500RPM in my opinion, I dare say 4000 even.
I still dont get what you did (based on the pics) with the coin though...
could you explain that?
And how did you fix the turbine to the fan?
Awsome Awsome work man. Props
