I understand doubt that I could cost-effectively cut into designs done by major R&D people, but I have a great feeling that they design their parts (like most others in different industries) for the lowest common denominator system. In other words, they're designing parts that will work in every kind of system thinkable. I believe I could pull off a far better design by taking a look at each specific case layout and make something custom tailored to that system.
You have a top idea but you are shooting at the wrong industry, what you are proposing is better geared to Industrial purposes.
The Problem isn't doubt of cutting in to designs and R&D of the mighty four(4) ThermalRight, Noctua, Prolimatech, Scythe's market. It's that it cant be done, not by a single starter. Sorry to sound rude.
Also what you propose is nigh on impossible without having the clients PC on hand because of all the variables that you will face.
Plus you will need to gather real information on currently available fans market.
But what you need to really think about is this:
Ok Price to get case on hand for working testing, measurements.
Is this your expense or theirs?
You always need raw material and capital before a start.
What is your time going to cost?
This is something that you may need to discuss with your client, this may make a $200 custom to $400. Decide this first, you need to get paid for you research, testing and raw materials.
Now,is it worth it?
Does it beat current competition for a equal or lesser cost to the client, now remember that with good liquid cooling can get as close to 2-5 degrees delta with ambient, can you guarantee those results while cooling my PC using one or more of your coolers for under $600 shipped with insurance?
Just a little food for thought, I am wanting to start a little business in case painting and refurbishment. I know it's not the same idea but similar issues crop up.
But I wish you the best, let the cooling begin.
