    I have been searching for a tidy way to secure the JRK's in my modified PC case. Has anyone designed a 3d printed mount? I found this (https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/jrk-12v12-overheating.10327/) and some others for the 12v3 on Yeggi and Thingiverse but nothing just for a 12v12 mount. I have a cooling solution already so after a neater way than just screwing to the case perhaps with some spacers. Thanks.

    Edit - I have also spent hours trying to design one myself with Fusion 360 and am not very proficient at using the software hence asking here.

    Pushed through the learning curve of Fusion 360 and created the attached .stl file for a mount for the JRK 12v12. It is only v1 and not printed as yet so will report back how it goes. JRK 12v12_img.jpg

    As you have not printed it just a suggestion, perhaps modify it and make it modular, so that more than one can clip together.

    Printed v1. Top mounting holes were a little out so no good. Photo attached. v2 now completed with proper measurements and printing out shortly (.stl file attached in .zip). Cut outs to accommodate all pins on the underside of the board and below the main chip to avoid any over heating issues of the plastic.

    @noorbeast - Modular could be a good idea but I was wanting some space between them for cable runs and cooling. Maybe a v3...
