Help me in my little project please.

I got this open computer case(it's made for mining but will use it for personal computer use.)
https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....L._SL1200_.jpg

and this 3 tier shelving unit to place it upon.
https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....L._SL1500_.jpg

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)
https://images.homedepot-static.com/...nc-64_1000.jpg
(plan to use thumb screws to hold the hdds on those metal bars).

I found some nice looking laptop coolers on amazon like this
https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....hL._SX679_.jpg
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!

I bought a bug screen role and cut out the pieces I needed and used some cardboard for casing.

That's an amazing idea, thank you so much!

Will be thinking twice now before throwing away my amazon mailing boxes.

I'm thinking to add 1 or 2 nocuta fans on the shelves where the hdds will be blowing air from the front to the back.
https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....L._SL1500_.jpg

My problem now is i dont know what is the best way to mount them, can you guys recommend me some ways?

I found these mounting brackets.
https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....L._SL1005_.jpg

I have couple 140mm noctua fans i hope it supports them as the picture shows only 120mm.

By the way the legs should face where the fan blows air or where it pulls air?

well as for building a open build, I have done a real large one. I would suggest spending more time on exactly how this could be built before deciding on what products you will use to build this. here is my own build I hope it gives you some great ideas for your own build.
