If your included clips won't fit (I assume the will not) you could try contacting Noctua and asking them what fan clips will fit 140mm square fans on your NH-U12P, but they may say there are none. NH-U12P is designed to use 120mm fan cooler.

hmm, yeah.. they probably say "no, but it should be do-able if you buy our NF-A15 fan instead" biggrin.gif
did you have any idea to make it looks good? i don't want to use those ghetto mounting for a long period. doesnt looks pleasant at all lol

Sorry, no. Maybe buy a piece of piano wire same size as fan clip wire and bend it to make your own fan clip.
post #2985 of 3104
zip ties works and its cheaper, but it wont be pretty.

speaking of fans, can a 120mm fan be mounted on an NH-L9 without an adapter? directly screwing the 120mm with just one hole.

PIano wire I'm talking about is 18-20 guage (about 1mm) tempered steel wire that you can buy at hobby stores.

I don't know exactly what it is. It's spring steel wire. You can google it and find out.

But don't think a square frame 140mm fan will fit in the middle slot. Most mb's sport heatsinks for their vrm's there. I had to tilt the 140mm standard fans to test them on an NH-D14. Round frames fit in there nicely. note: I had to change my original word choice to pass the website's autocensors.

Found an image of a 140mm square frame fan on a D14:

Here is how NF-A14 iPPC-3000RPM fans look when mounted on D15. Looks like cooler was made for them. wink.gif

From http://www.relaxedtech.com/reviews/noctua/nf-a14-industrialppc/5 review, but I would not pay any attention to their test results unless you have an identical system in Antec 900 case .. because they are not testing cooler against cooler, but how different cooler preform in a specific system .. theirs. Other testing I've seen and done shows high performance fans like NF-A14 iPPC-2000 and 3000 lower CPU temps by about 8-10c below what stock cooler fans do. But to do this in a case requires changing case fans to hi-performance fans so case can supply the cool airflow needed for hi-performance cooler fans to receive their needed cool air supply. If case fans do not supply needed cool air the cooler fans re-use their own heated exhaust air to make up the difference and we know that every degree warmer the air into cooler when CPU is under extreme load is a degree warmer the CPU is. wink.gif


That square frame would hunker down on a D14 as well. What lifts up the corner is the VRM heatsink you find on many motherboards. Try it and see. I go with round frames.
