I think it is I said it before but I am surprised, in a good way. Can't wait for the controller to come in, I have ABS case with clear top cover to view the 3 digit screen, mounting plate for it and all the fun things

Anyway, I hope I'll have time to strip the rack this weekend to drill mounting holes for the 140mm to get the fans in. Then some testing with this setup and on-channel controller and we'll see if I'll be adding 4 more (that will require drilling four 140mm holes, but well)

Would love to see some pics of it .. and I'm probably not the only one.

For the mounting I might use something like this if I won't find grommets like you suggested.

Oh, no problem, I'll definitely make some I already have been documenting it a bit. Looks better than in real life Also only the 2U server is up and running, R210 II is off because I need to silence the rack first to run it 24/7 in my office, 3U is..empty because I'm missing CPU

Well..I promised some pics There is my 2 channel controller I got from our Chinese friends this week.

I used an universal case, mounting plate, added those thingies for motherboard but with screw holes on both ends Also some cable extenders so I don't have to open the case to disconnect the fans. In the end? I'm happy with the result. It was the fastest (even with shipping) way to close another part of my project. Eventually I'll probably go for some kind of Arduino controlled solution but I didn't want to waste time researching that.

I drilled mounting holes for 140mm fan and used the silicone mounting pins do fix the fans to the rack case.
