How to mount dual DDC top to a 12cm fan?

post #1 of 7

Hi guys,

How do you mount 2 DDCs with a dual DDC top to a 12cm fan or case?








Do these work?

obviously, the mounting for a dual pump top is the same as two DCC pumps side by side.

To that effect I would recommend attaching it in the same manor, aka, attach it to an existing grill, like I've done.

Or, measure and drill some holes.



The mounting brackets you listed there will work by the looks of it, but keep in mind that if you attach anything from only one of the pumps, you might find you get some vibration issues.

For mounting to a 120mm fan, personally, I'd make my own mount from a piece of aluminium... drill a few holes, cut away some metal or drill more holes for air flow if you want and job done.

I think two of those brackets bolted to their Z-Bracket would work.

Yea, it's been a few years now but I used to play 40k with a pure Tzeentch army. A role play army ofc, because it's damned hard to win anything with an 11 model 1000 point army...

BTW, why do I need two brackets? the dual ddc top is not as long as one 120mm fan

I'm not quite sure why you want to mount to a 120mm fan slot, you will be better off just drilling a couple of holes wherever and slapping some bolts in.


If you want to mount on a 120mm fan, then I think you'll be better of making your own, I don't know of any mounting brackets that fit 120mm screw spacing.
