3.5 cooler???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am trying to find a way to use my spare 3.5 cover and turn it into an air intake. Why, well because I can. I have several ideas, including using a pci slot fan, mod'ed to fit in there. Also I have though about adding some 40mm fans in the 12cfm range, which 24 cfm to my already high airflow would be good, and there are some blue led ones.

I was wondering though has anyone else come up with anything?

Helpful of what... its a standard 3.5 inch drive cover/hole. The same one the floppy goes in. I have one with a plastic cover still and want to make it into some sort of intake/exhaust for my case.

if you have a 3.5 bay that has a little space above or below, you could easily build a 3.5 box on the back of your drive bay cover... with an 80/92mm fan mounted on the box... and some vents on the bay cover...

Front of case / side view

air flowing downward into case

or the other way... but if you wanted exhaust, you could get a pci slot blower...
