I guess there's not much more to actually do with this build (unless I wanted to box up the motherboard compartment) so this fan guard will have to do for the obligatory V2 of any builds I do.

I thought I'd have to resize it after the first print, but as luck would have it, it's a perfectly good fit, and even the "tinkercad can't do circles" thing worked out for me in this case as it gives the sides just enough flex to allow for a completely snug fit. :)

I'll post up some pics at a later date, but I've added a full sized ATX tray to the mix in order to allow for a vid card that requires a PCIe power cable.

Basically remove the legs and the current PSU mounts and then attach this via the countersunk holes for the legs. The tray is most certainly wide enough that the legs are no longer required if you're not worried about clearance on the bottom, but you could also get a longer screw that would go through the new PSU mount and into legs but you'd have to print off slightly longer legs.

Hahah, can't be too careful if your fingers get close to the fan. Need those for typing. :)
