am I the only one who needs this off center of the holes to fit properly?

Perfect !!! Thanck s

Printed at 101% and and it fits well. Screw holes were still a tad bit small but i just threaded the new bolts through. Use m3x25mm(some people said 30mm which are way too long). Great design!

Honest question, not being rude or judgmental at all... Does this cover effect air flow at all? Wouldn't it trap in heat? Just trying to gain knowledge, not trying to be mean or rude.

You're not being rude nor judgmental at all, it's a real concern that I share. This design is great, and I'll print it and try it out, but it does seem to cut into the air intake. I've seen a quite a few fan covers on this site that makes me ponder if I want to sacrifice cooling efficiency for looks. There are a few people that do seem to know what they're talking about, you know, the engineer type ;-)

Perfect.. Thank you.

Used M3*25 screws and they fitted the holes perfectly..

Love it, simple and effective, improves the look of the machine by quite a lot I think.

Hi (again)
Good job, i love it, the design is really cool.

Recommend to print this at 101% or 102% to make it fit just that little bit better

I made this and it worked and looked great! Also the holes on my cooling fan where the screws go in were cracked and made it so I couldn't keep ht e fan from wiggling around, this cover kinda acted like washers and now it is good and tight.

his is great would recommend the M3*30 screw

What cooling fan piece thing are you using mine wont work with this

Great little upgrade looks professional cheers

Thanks for the upload. This is my first comment on this site. Thanks again

Love the design, but the holes are too small for m3 screws to fit, and I broke it trying to thread it in. Will try to scale and see if it helps.

Edit: Printing another one, will just drill it. Don't know why I didn't think of that.

I had the skull fan cover before, but this is much more elegant and looks great !
Also, noticeable improvement in air flow comparing to skull fan cover.
Thank you :-)
