Hi OCN,

Ive just acquired some new case fans and a new CM 212+ to cool my i5 760 however I request your assistance on installing my scythe kaze Q fan controller in my antec p183 case

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9_511&products_id=16033

The controller itself is made for a 3.5inch slot and my p183 case has one of them as you can see below:

The problem is that when I try and slot in and secure the fan controller it does not meet up with any holes to screw into the case nor can I really reach any place near the 3.5in bay to do anything further.

Here is a shot of the controller

A pic of the controller slotted into the 3.5in bay without anything holding it in place

I cannot really cut off the top piece of the bay you see from that last image because it needs to have my main hard drive bay rack screwed in there and it is the only place I can get my ssd. All I can think of now is to superglue it in place but seems a bit messy.

If anyone has their solution or can share some past experience on this issue please share it!


Thanks
Serenity
