  1. I've been working on a new video focused on SE and SE/30 fan upgrades over the last month and a half. I don't have any machines with the old squirrel cage fan, but I am aware many SE owners are. I want to add info in my video for those folks. I've searched this forum for "squirrel cage" and read through a lot of posts, but no one has provided a step-by-step upgrade with photos. Uniserver said that in his opinion it was the best fan because it moves a lot of air and is quiet, although he admits that it's noisy when dirty; and the reality is fans get dirty faster than you think. The boxer fans in contrast remain about the same in volume even with a bit of crud on them. Plus, the boxer fans are sold today whereas the squirrel cage fan is not. Anyway, I want to confirm with those of you who have done this squirrel-to-boxer fan upgrade how you did it. Specifically, if all you have is an older SE analog board with the squirrel cage fan, removing that fan means you have no metal bracket for mounting a replacement 60mm fan. (Newer analog boards had 60mm boxer fans.) I did find the following post: But "Velcro"? Really? Seems like it would wobble around after a while. In any case, I'd love to see a photo of that. Another post I found was this: But that is only for a 50x20mm fan, which I personally would not use because it's too small. Even most 60mm fans are rather small in terms of their airflow. Anything smaller would either not move much air at all or need to ramp up the rpms and be noisy to move sufficient air. If anyone knows of someone who created a 3D printable bracket, that would perhaps be the ideal solution. It might a bit more sound damping too as compared to the stock metal bracket, but one would need to print and test such a plastic bracket to know for certain. Any thoughts, suggestions and photos you are willing to share would be appreciated. Thank you.
