Ive searched all over the net and can not find a supplier of 70mm fan grills. Any help appreciated
Do they even make 70 mm fans or fan grills?
yes they do, some hs manufacturers make them (akasa does im sure of that) but the fans are really hard to replace and i cant find any fan grills
Maplin used to sell them but they dont seem to anymore.
that looks good, i wish i lived in the US tho
the search continues, im also looking for 70mm-80mm fan adapters. I think these will be impossible for anyone to find tho. Any ideas on how to make one?
Piece 'a cake. (Well, on a cnc router!)
im only a lowly student
couldn't you just mod an 80mm one?
It would prob look crap if i did it. I would like a professional looking one.
I think jazzle has the right idea, cut a 70mm hole in a piece of acrylic, then run a router with a chamfer bit around the edge to blend it into an 80mm hole.
I dont have any acrylic left
Kong, ya beat me to it - that's exactly what I was thinking about earlier
Was trying to find some templates for 70mm and 80mm grilles, but your pic is better quality that i could have done (as I only have MS Paint installed ATM !!)
Shogun, a big block of acrylic is gonna cost you some even before machining, so if you are skint, you must make do with what you have. It may be an idea to simply make a 70mm hole in a piece of metal/plastic drill the two sets of mounting holes for each size fan, and call it done. Once the fan goes on, you shouldn't see it anyway.
If you use the body of the 80mm fan as a template, there should be no problem...
and thinking about it I may try this method with my own case - using an undervolted 92mm or even 120mm fan to reduce the noise from cooling my CPU ??
dabs and thermaltake
do a search for thermaltake on here they use to have 70mm grills im sure
my 70mm fan is the only one in the house without a grill on it ... it makes less noise without it ... and when i crank it up to 6k it screams as it is ..
i want to make a 70mm<92mm adaptor for it ... with a 15 deg. rise towards the rear ... i love my volcano7+ heatsink, but i am growing weary of the fan it came with
