Does anyone make fan covers or shrouds for 120 mm fans . They would cover the fan body, not talking about grills, but covers for the body of the fan.

Tnx Blaylock. The Alphacool shroud would be nice but really looking for metal 1 like that. Dazmods want 25 dollars shipping , for a 6 dollar item , no way lol. Think ill just make one. And they only have one in stock.

Depending on the fan I can agree. There are some very appealing fans out there though. The TT Riings are gorgeous. The Corsair Ap/SP's are nice and the Noise Blocker eLoop's all look very nice to me.

Just make sure you know what you're ordering. Looks like some of those are just spacers and not fan shrouds like I had thought.

I wonder where the manufacturers buy their frames? TBH I have some fans I gutted to make shrouds. I also have sheets of plastic I made into NH-D14 shrouds for an experiment, years ago.

Cute thing I found was this.

I know it's a grill. But it channels air better than a whole line of shrouds. I tried the shroud route for a variety of things. Since then I've put way the shrouds and the channelers both.

Im looking for a shroud to cover body of fan,Baylock found one by the way, just to dress up fan going in FMJ project, not necessarily to channel air. I tried shrouds like ur talking about and like u, got rid of em.

Fan dressing. Now there's a concept. Well, since my stuff is hidden, I never thought about it. Still, interesting idea.
