So I’ve been busy designing things and printing prototypes and here’s another one I just finished and published. It’s the E3D V6 on the MP Select Mini. This fan duct allows you to easily switch between fan and no fan just by removing a divider. I liked the oem version that someone else created but there wasn’t anything like it for the e3d v6 when I upgraded to it so I just had to make my own.

Some thing useful for today, it’s fan duct for the MP Select Mini, but it’s different as it really focuses the air. I like it, and it works great really, but I’m going to re-print it in ABS at better quality settings.
I made it in black, but then decided I wanted it in orange… I haven’t installed it yet, will be doing shortly as my new 40mm fan just arrived. The 30mm stock fan is just too noisy for me.
Another day, another review….

"If you’ve ever built your own system you know that you need good fans and one such company that makes them is Noctua as if you’re an enthusiast you know this. If you’re looking for quiet and reliable fans that are on the cutting edge of cooling technology, then you go with Noctua plain and simple. Today for review I have one of the latest fans from Noctua, the NF-S12A FLX, the FLX means Flex or flexible meaning that you can control the fan speed and it gives you three choices 1200rpm, 900rpm or 700rpm depending on what your uses are for the fan. These make a great choice for either CPU air cooling, liquid cooling or even just case cooling. Read on to learn more… "
Another review by me on TestFreaks!
"A few years ago a friend of mine brought his computer over to my house, needed some work and parts and when he turned it on it sounded like a small airplane taking off. You could hear this thing on the second floor of my house, that’s how loud it was. That was ridiculous in my opinion, you don’t need noisy and loud fans to have a cool system. Personally I must have a quiet system, but I don’t sacrifice performance for low noise levels. Noctua is one of the top companies when it comes to keeping your computer cool, they’re always innovating and improving on their designs and they’ve sent me over their latest 120mm cooling fan for review, the NF-S12A PWM. This fan is 120mm in size and has a maximum speed of 1200rpm, but you can use the included adapter to lower the speed to only 900rpm. I’ve put the NF-S12A up against another Noctua fan that runs much faster at 1500rpm, and I was surprised by the results and I think you might be too. Read on to learn more… "
A new review by me on DragonSteelMods!
Quote: "The cooling fan is an integral part of any computer system, and not all are created equal. I personally prefer a quiet yet cool system and finding that balance is hard to do, thankfully Noctua makes it a bit easier with their award winning fan designs. The latest fan I have for review from Noctua is the NF-A14 ULN where ULN stand for Ultra Low Noise. This fan, at stock, runs at only 800 RPM but yet still manages to move quite a bit of air around your case but remaining virtually silent. If 800 RPM isn’t quiet enough for you, then you can use the supplied Low Noise Adapter and slow the fan down even further to only 650 RPM and yet still move almost the same amount of air. So read on to learn more about the fan and see some test results…"

"Keeping your computer cool should be one of your number one priorities when building or maintaining your system, but sadly for a lot of people it isn’t. Many people are more than happy with the stock fans that come with their cases, and sometimes they just don’t do the job and even worse they don’t do the job and they’re loud on top of it. Just because a fan is loud doesn’t mean it’s moving the amount of air it could be to keep your system cool. Up for review today I have one of Noctuas latest fans, the NF-A14 FLX, which is a 140mm fan and the FLX stands for Flex where the fan can be run at three different speeds depending on your needs and/or preferences. The NF-A14 makes a great fan for cooling your case or system or it can be used with a radiator where you need to move the largest amount of air to make sure things are cool. So read on to learn more about the fan and see how it performs… "
