or you can use this one, both fits

Fan 120 mm -
Magnets -

Step 2: 3D-print

print all the needed parts, use support for the body, 2 outer perimeters is good enough with 15-20% infill.

Step 3: Wire the Parts

if everything is done right. just put the grill at the front, you can glue magnets to make sure it stays in place.

Step 8: Insert Ice - Chillout!

Either you can use ice pack or you can print the icebox, but if you are printing the icebox, make sure it don´t leaks, i used ABS with vapor-smoothing to make sure it was watertight., you can also print it in PLA or other material and use epoxy for coating.

Enjoy your AC-cooler!
