Summary

DOWN-REV!

I can't remove this thing...

But I built a better cover, with camera slots and designed supports for a cleaner build....

here...

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4154600

Case for Noctua 5V 40x10mm 4 pin Fan...
Compatable with "Raspberry Pi 4 B Case (SnapTop)"
CPU stays very Cool. 36C during stress test (100% Fan)

SCREWS
4x M2.5 8mm

Standoffs 10mm M2.5

Nuts
4x M2.5

Bracket frame mounts on 10 mm standoffs.
CPU takes 9mm tall (9.4mm) Heatsink...

Fan fits into fan frame snugly, no screws required. M2.5 screws needed on bottom of case to secure Pi4B board to standoffs.

Case also fits into
Bracket For Case (Raspberry Pi 3B and 4B) Cases

Case cover snaps on, also fits other Raspberry Pi 4B case... (SnapTop). See Black and white version render.

Fan connects to GPIO pins and can be controlled via PWM.

You can run the fan at 3.5 V from the GPIO (either 5V or 3.5V) the 3.5V pin runs slower, quieter....

Tested at Idle, and 3.5V runs at 95F vs 91F with IceTower (3.5V)

More later... after I learn how to implement it ... Any help on this is welcome.
