Ok, the wiring is the first thing to go. This 12 gauge is intended for wiring houses not my platters.
I also have an idea to bolt the power into the fan casing but that can be a future iteration. For now I'm going to revel that it's all working and temp tests are positive (operating at a cool 62f while running crush maps)
And with that, I call it a night
