140mm 10mm thick usb fan?

Hello,

I'm getting a laptop in in a few days. I want to make a laptop cooler for it out of some 3/4" oak plywood I have on hand. I want to add in a fan for cooling. I'd like a 140mmx10mm usb fan if possible. Is anyone aware of such a fan? I'm having trouble finding one.

Thanks,
Chargeit

I own a few of their other sizes. They're good fans but kind of thick.

Looks like I might have to go with an 80mm fan. Seems to be the largest size I can find at 10mm thick. Was hoping I missed something.

Thanks!

Wouldn't it be easier to just grab a standard 140mm fan and wire it yourself for USB? Get a high RPM one you know that can run on 5v and ezpz.

Yeah might have more luck finding a normal low profile 140mm fan. I'll dig around for one. See what I can come up with.

Yeah I have a 120 and 80mm. One of them is in my AV cabinet and the other one is around here somewhere. Very nice build quality.

Never seen a 140mm even 120mm 10mm height fan. All the laptop pads/coolers use 2x80mm low profile 5V fans. Or something close to it. These low profile fans are often pretty crappy. If you can fit 25-30mm height then get a standard high speed 1350-1700rpm 140mm fan and run it at 5V, many will start around 4V I think, gotta check the specific fan though when it starts up.

The standard fan thickness is much thicker then 3/4" plywood.

I plan on routing out a spot to mount the fan. I could have the fan a little proud on the bottom though I'd like to keep it flush if possible.

For the task I don't think it needs to move a ton of air. Main reason for wanting a 140mm fan was just to have a large fan running at low rpm.

Once I get the laptop in I can better plan the laptop cooler. I'll be able to see what height makes sense for any risers on the bottom and see what kind of fan thickness I can fit in. There are 15mm 120mm fans I'm seeing which might have to do.


Here are two 120mm 15mm fans I'm looking at,

Noctua (1850 rpm)

Or,

SilverStone (1500 rpm)
https://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-T...dp_ob_title_ce

15mm is a little thicker then I'd like but it should work. I'll leave them a little proud on the bottom to give myself more meat to mount them to but they should work.

I found this to converter 5v power to a 12v fan,

Step up converter,

Looks about right?
