I got this open computer case(it's made for mining but will use it for personal computer use.)
and this 3 tier shelving unit to place it upon.
In the 2 shelves below i plan to place 10 hdds(for now more later) vertically being held together by this metal bar(times 4)
(plan to use thumb screws to hold the hdds on those metal bars).
I found some nice looking laptop coolers on amazon like this
and got the idea to place them under the shelves so they cool the hdds that will be sitting above the shelves.
Are those laptop coolers good and quite enough for an open case project like mine and can you recommend me the best way to mount them under the shelves or if you have any better ideas for cooling my hdds.(so far i can only think of using zipties to hold them onto the shelves.)
(I'm thinking also if it's possible to mount regular 120-140mm pc fans under the shelves.)
I will have my hdds together like in this video
but place them horizontal on the shelves.
I also consider using screen mesh around the shelving unit to keep the dust out.
What kind of screen mesh do you recommend and what would be the best way to mount it around the shelving unit?
So far i'm thinking to glue velcro on the shelving unit and the screen mesh and mount it that way for easy removal when i want to access the hdds.
I'm thinking to do similar screen mesh installation on the pc open case that will be sitting above.
Would love to hear your ideas and advices guys, thanks in advance!
