Does anyone know of rectangle fans?

Like a CPU fan that's 70mm x 140mm or similar?

@CobaltVelvet Yeah like fans that are built into the same case so I don't have to worry about case gap etc

@Eden i don't think that's a thing. you can get 2x80mm, or 2x120mm for example... 2 fans in one frame would be impractical.

@drcable See, I thought about this, but figured the two cases would make it tricky to attach.

I'm tying it to a stack of raspberry pis, so I didn't want anything too wide etc

@Eden nod, I think you're best making a frame, soldering the 12v and PWM lines together? or just plastic weld the fans together/do the same with the wires?

@drcable That seems pretty sensible. I have a few friends who can 3d print if I want to strip the case and put two togehter..

@Eden I'd go with plastic weld, superglue or gaffa tape tbh, but you could 3d print some things to join the two close screw holes together?
