Happy Father's Day TO ME!!!! Order Placed!
I've added an "external" variant to the thingiverse page, so you basically just have a pocket with no USB port. I haven't tried printing one but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't fit.I have a 3d printer myself so I'd only need the file if that's ok. I was thinking about flipping the usb but the usb gdrom are so expensive I wasn't going to mess with it, besides that, I'm ok with the external hdd too.
The cooling fan is pretty much open to drawing air from the atmosphere with the gdrom removed instead of drawing it through the air intake vents at the back. It can only help to draw air in the way it was designed.Why is everyone so concerned with the heat on the USB GDROM? Doesn't the whole cooling system on the Dreamcast sit under a metal plate separate from this assembly and wouldn't it be completely unaffected by the the media setup?Cool. How hot is under a DC tray?
