Can a fan made of GRID FINS work? - Fan Showdown S2E11

Publicerades den 25 apr 2021
The Fan Showdown is a chance for all you out there to have a go at creating what you think the worlds best PC cooling fan looks like. Over the episodes we have had some real bangers and some real flops but no matter what its always a good time. You dont need any experience to give it a try, ill test anything. today we have some great fans, some are demonic, some are things you see every day and some are straight up rocket science. Have you ever looked at a SpaceX falcon 9 booster and wondered, would those grid fins cool a PC, well if so today we answer that question.

  • i really love the ceiling fan design lol

  • Can you please post these files somewhere if the original owners allow them?

  • I like your personality dude lol ur kinda funny 🙃

  • Those skillshare videos you're watching on video editing are really paying off! Looks beautiful!

  • I guess the slug moves so much air because it has a large surface area on the blades, meaning it can move a lot of air at once, plus the sheer volume of the fan makes it so that it has a larger area of capture than most other fans, so it isn't exactly the best fan, but it's pretty damn good for a non-flat fan.

  • here I am at 1 in the morning watching videos of fans, wow SEnewss. good job

  • He made the fan to try and make hell freeze over more quickly.

  • did you run out of red for the demon fan?

  • The main issue I see with these more unusual designs is that some seem great at pulling in the air, but the releasing of it is so turbulent that I feel that it would make it work less efficiently than one that could release as well as it pulls it in...but I'm not an engineer and this is only an observation...

  • I think it would of been funny to sample in the faint screams of tortured souls for the demon fan sound sample.

  • If you put the fan in a Acrylplate for the vapor test you may get a way better sideview...

  • 1:27 he tried to but failed?

  • If we provide assembly drawings, are multi part fans allowed? Assuming we can design them to not require any fasteners and not have too many parts of course.

  • Is it Noctua printed fan or of the shelf?

  • I really appreciate you listing the episode where you test these fans...

  • I want that demon fan. Though I would like it for a 200mm fan. For something else, not my PC. Hehehehe.

  • I wish the Demon was noise tuned to make a 66.6 dBa shriek.

  • It’d be kinda cool to see how well the fans push (or pull) air through a radiator or heat sink fins with the smoke machine. This series is pretty awesome.

  • I'd love to go for a ride on that motor myself, but, uh .. I'm not a fan. #badumbum

  • Wera tools!! My man knows his tool game!! Subbed just for your taste in tools

  • where can we get some of the files, if we want to put it in a pc build ??

  • Hmm, how much of that noise is due to vibrations on the table?

  • Grid fin but the grid lines are shaped aerodynamilcally to produce lift XD

  • Umm the picture you shown for “Soyuz” is Chinese Shenzhou spacecraft on a LongMarch rocket. Which technically not the same, but some technology were based on Soyuz. The grid fin is not used during normal operations, only used if need aborting as part of launch escape system.

  • “Can grid fins make into a fan?” Me and BA in aerospace engineering: Nah, they make them to create drag. “Let’s make it into a fad!” Me: *surprised Pikachu face*

  • ah yes, the black backlight

  • You've probably seen a hot ceiling if you've seen a house fire

  • Wtf I thought the ceiling fan was made of 1960s boarding school as* paddles

  • I know my cpu fan(store bought) gets to about 75-80c while doing stress testing the cpu, how good is that for a non homemade one

  • Would love to see a static pressure test with a radiator or something 🤷‍♂️?

  • This reminds me of my childhood love of paper airplane aerodynamics, adding ailerons, elevators, flaps, air breaks and fins that don't have names.

  • Has anyone tested the Draw on the motor? How much electricity is needed to draw that air? This would test the heat and strain on the motor.

  • The grid fan looks like the grill on some urinals in Australia

  • what is the music you used for the smoke test? i really like it so many good musics and no link in description (don't worry, its not just you)

  • The denom sucks like hell

  • The slug is gonna win bro... 3D fans and turbines are way more efficient

  • "They all look the same... except for the one made of d*cks" killed me lol love your videos so much

  • I think a puma is going to end up in a meat grinder accident.

  • What about instead of changing the fins, you extend the casing?

  • What if you made a pc fan with metal fins ?

  • Thoughts on adding a power draw sensor and calculating efficiency?

  • Can you pleased make a Video about 40x 20mm Fans. Who make the best? Noctua, Noiseblocker etc. Would bei super nice top see (and hear).

  • The blow pattern of the ceiling fan is super interesting! It looks like it's directing air towards the center, which tends to be a 'dead zone' for most fans! ...or maybe that's just how it looks since the blades are smaller...

  • I'd love to see that demon fan on a red devil gpu.

  • Whats the background music

  • Why? the devil is bad!

  • seems like to aggressive a pitch?

  • TRIPLE.SPIRAL celtic design in a fan blade...try that one!

  • Is it just me, or are his jokes getting better and better each episode?

  • That demon fan needs to be in my life.

  • for some reason after watching these videos makes me want to start vaping again.

  • Not DOOM.....DIABLO!!! 1:15

  • "I don't think that I looked a slug and thought cooling fan..." Yeah, that made me giggle...

  • I love your vids on all these fan designs, haven't contributed - but thought of something. Is it possible to add a Static-pressure test metric for all the fans you've tested? I wonder how it competes against other static pressure designs for fans used on radiators and similar.

  • Major, I really think your demos with the fans would do better if there was some kind of separating wall between the front and the back of the fan. On some designs the pressures from the exhaust of the fan interfere with the intakes performance. Even a 1sqft sheet of acrylic would be a massive improvement. Please consider it!

  • Does the decibel rating for the demon fan include the wails of the damned?

  • Do a special episode with like 20 fans 😄

  • What about a holy fan (fans with small holes in the blades) or a golfball fan (dimpled blades) or blades with small raised lines on it (more grip), thanks dude, awesome binge material.

  • What does he do with all these

  • Please please please do a doom themed pc with those demon ones lit up red

  • i hope you post a thingiverse link or at least ask the fan creator to post it on thingiverse if they want so that we can also try it at home #sorry for my bad english

  • @3:15 Guess he's never seen a slug fart...

  • you should have printed the demon fan in red transparent plastic it would have been a lot cooler?

  • fan air good?

  • Have you thaught of adding a longer tube to the end of your fog machine to direct the smoke more? You could then add different Diameter ends for it for various cloud sizes. Just a thaught.

  • you should turn that vase on the left into a fan

  • I'm considering buying a 3d printer, what's your current recommendation for a first printer?

  • Germy? Uh

  • Grid fins are aerodynamic devices, they are literally only useful in the atmosphere and help control the booster until the rocket is lit... so definitely not rocket science.

  • Liked the Lovecraftian eldritch horror fan.

  • make the grids slightly bent and watch the flow

  • Anyone knows the music?

  • Impressive bong rips

  • What do you use to make that smoke

  • Hindsight, I just realized the smoke test is always open w/ no radiator, but we're actually testing the ability of these fans ability to move through a radiator. Their pressure is more important than their general airflow.

  • Yo someone should make a thargoid inspired fan

  • I'm not even close to a computer designer or fan expert BUT, I have an idea. On the grid fan, what if you canted the grid the opposite direction of blades? It would seem to me that it would cause it to scoop up air like an icecream scoop. The grids may have to be made stronger and/or it would use more power, but unless someone knows a solid reason why it wouldn't be an improvement in someway, maybe it's worth testing.

  • did someone call me

  • 4:14 oh Yeah that's exactly what the Soyz looks like...

  • Hi sharks, I have one question for you. Have you ever seen a hot ceiling?

  • I wonder how different these would be via resin printers

  • And the lame stock fan performed worse! 😂😂😂😂 this is a great business idea, partner or compete with them!

  • If you could program the led on the demon to strobe so you’d always see the pentagram in the correct orientation would be cool! Def my fave 😈

  • Slug seems to be a best spread airflow

  • hey man, some slugs are beautiful. check out sea slugs, they range from a rabbit mixed with a marshmallow to mardi gras costumes

  • Was expecting the Demon fan to be loud at 66.6 Db.

  • I would have homespun as my front fan just for the chuckle it would give me every time.

  • I see a London underground subway sign in the grid fin.

  • The gridfin is moving air towards the frame of the fan lol

  • Let’s go rockets!!!!!!

  • I think these projects really blow.

    • @Major Hardware Fantastic!

    • Anyone can't do 2 puns I'm gonna need a 3rd

  • This guy sure is popular. Just look at all his fans!

  • Can u please show it in f°

  • For a moment I thought that blue vase is also a fan lol

  • You really implement the things from the comments in your videos! Its kinda FANmade

  • now we need the 5 bladed ceiling fan with longer and possibly wider blades.

  • What's the background music in the beginning?

  • Interesting that the a12x is behind the derf 2.0

  • the homespun is a joke, why did you try it?

    • @Major Hardware well it is a very good one gj :) This is my first time watching your videos :)

    • i like jokes

  • Can we please make all technology crowdsourced for max efficiency please world?
