This is a refreshing post, with some skills involved.
I might just follow your steps.
The printer is a a cheap Anet A8 with some reinforcement to reduce frame wobble, new belts and tension system, mosfet for the heated bed, and that's about it. Super happy with the print quality that I'm able to get out of it, it produces better parts than our Taz 5 and 2 Taz 6 we have at work.
Temps on the computer are ok. If I max all the fans the CPU reaches 78° while gaming, if I use my aggressive fan curve it will hit a max of 80°. My GPU during games is dumping massive amounts of hot air into the system, when I stress the CPU and only the CPU it only hits 65° to 70°.
The current fan configuration is pulling air into the system, After I install the Noctua I might look at switching them around to exhaust the hot air. I have a couple test's I want to try to see what works best.
I am currently using a 90 degree power cord, I would like to find a low profile one that will allow the case to sit closer to the desk but every one I see online is approximately 1" tall which is what I currently have. The ones that look low profile have comments about receiving a different plug than pictured that is 1" tall.
I do have a backpack that it fits into quite nicely, I will have to take a picture, lol! I have thought about talking it on field service when I go, but don't trust the airport to not lose or damage my stuff.
When I get the system all done I will have to take some better pictures of it. Maybe I will re-purpose the Ryzen fan where it can be on display. . . Thanks for the idea!
If you do end up doing something similar and have any questions I'm more than happy to help!
