    So I used the two middle (of the four)p that go from the power supply to the main board. As for which one is positive and which one is negative I cannot remember. Also an fyi the fan will be powered on whenever the power switch on the back is on.spme people had found ways to solder to the main board to be on only when the consoles running but I didn't care to do that much. As long as it runs it's good, right.

    Interesting results guys. Thank you for sharing! I will definitely take a look at the design to see how it can be improved.

    I haven't had any fan issues. Mine spins right up. Yes, it is a 12V fan, but it will run at lower voltages. It just spins slower than at 12V. This is how PWM case fans for computers work all the time. The PS2 uses the same tech.

    Where was there interference with the PS2 case that needed trimming? What model PS2 are you guys running? I tested this all on my 30001. Others may be slightly different.

    My PS2 is a 39001 so that might explain the slight fitmebt issues. It looks great now that I did some minor tweaking with the heat shielding right near the corner under the power plug area. I don't know about the fan. For me it would not spin up at all at idle. I tested the fan in my comp and the plug on the PS2 all were good. I figured it would have spun up but it didn't, so I just grabbed my multimeter and found a 12 supply and it's great. Simple fixes. Still a great deal I feel.

    For $30 this 3D print includes the Noctua fan right?

    Based on the picture you sent me a few mins ago Daoxer I think the fan connector is backwards or the wires are mixed up.

    Also have a 39001 here that I'd love to add this mod to... if the few issues mentioned above get sorted out I'd be interested in picking one up for sure.

    Yes, it includes everything you need except a screw driver to open up the console.


    Yes! Huge thanks to Izula for his help identifying the fan issue. It seems the power wires to the fan were wired incorrectly. I am going through my inventory and fixing this issue.

    Cool thanks. I'll probably check it out when you get some back in stock. 3D prints are usually better v2 :)

    Well, I found the problem. The wire harness pigtails I ordered were not consistently colored! Some were red/black and the others had black/red. I soldered them together based on the color, and some are messed up. That'll be fixed on future parts.

    Alright well the replacement wire came in and here's the results
    The Good
    • Wire worked perfectly no issues
    • fan worked
    • Very quite can't even tell the systems on
    • Seems the HDD adapter fits fine
    The not so good
    • The shroud/back plate does not fit or line up with the screw holes, system shell cannot be put on correctly
    • While the fan is quite it also seems it is pushing half the air( no way to measure, just an assumption)
    • You might want to shorten the black wrapped wire

    Thank you A+ for sharing! Hope @Daoxer can easily make revisions to address these issues. Shipping will probably be screwy in the coming weeks with everything going on unfortunately.

    Any updates on this? Still looking to pick one up (assuming the issues with the fit on a 39001 are resolved)

    I have a noctua 12v fan that I was looking to put to good use. Can you sell a kit without the fan?​
