The 30mm fan failed on me this morning and I had a spare 5015 blower fan lying around, and I can say this is the bomb. Nice upgrade for my printer, definitely cools better than the stock fan for v6 or the 40x10mm Noctua. Thanks

Printed this for my Chimera dual hotend. Fit great, and the 50mm blower works MUCH better than the stock 30mm fan. This is a great and easy upgrade for my Tevo Tarantula.

I am using this one too.
So far so good. It looks nice and the prints come out good. I must say the original fan was very loud and this one is a lot less noisy.
But does it cool better? I am not sure.

I really like it when bridging goes well and when Printing fine details look good, so I bought a fan that blows faster. You and I are using 0.16A now, so I ordered a 0.32A fan (same shape/size as the one we are using now). 6500 RPM, air flow : 4.6 CFM

The 0.16A is probably around 2.18 CFM

When I get it, I will test and report here how it went.

Personally I do not like the fannoise, but I never stay too long around the printer any way. (Just to see that the first layer is OK)

yes thank you!!!!! i will make and post it here shortly

So this adapts to a 30mm fan mount?

Correct. This can be used to replace a regular 30mm fan with a blower style fan.

Hey Matt,
I've been looking for a replacement for this noisy little fan, your model is exactly what I was looking for.
Have you had any problems since you switched to this cooling solution? Any clogs at all?
Thanks,
Diego

Nope. No problems and I haven't had any clogs.
