Hi, just a stupid question : how did you place the 40 mm Noctua fan in/over the armor case since these models have no fan or small dual fans ?
Thanks. (just looking for a quiet and good cooling solution, but don't need an extreme one).

But if all you want is a cooling solution and don't need "extreme", then simply forget the fan at all, and prop the Pi on its edge (you'll have to account for cables) and the natural convection of the air around the Pi will cool it more efficiently than laying it flat, in my experience, enough to prevent it from ever throttling (I tested mine with a basic stress test on a 46C degree day and never got my Pi over 82 degrees C, 3 degrees below throttling temperature. In ordinary use, you'll likely never stress the Pi as hard as a stress test will, so it shouldn't even get that hot.
