Intake fan in a 5.25 bay (warning - graphics) - Page 24

post #231 of 328
As I don't really use my 5.25" bays, I really like the idea of putting something more useful in there. This thread has gotten me excited about doing something with these bays. Out of curiosity, has anyone thought of using or modding a Cooler Master 4 in 3 drive bay for this?

As for which side, that depends on which side you're sticking on the HD cage.

I can't imagine applying the Velcro in the flanges of the fan. Can you show which specific area in a picture? You can see how the drive bays of the HAF 922 look like here:imageview.php?image=20925 . I don't understand how will it stick in that cage if you apply velcro the entire area of the flange? The flange is the side circumference of the fan, right?

I don't know where to source sticky tack or silly putty in our place. And wouldn't it be a messy solution compared to just using Velcros or zip-ties?

Why not apply the Velcro in these areas:

That cage looks just fine to use zip ties. I see everyone mentioning Velcro/Styrofoam/etc, but only a handful mentioning zip ties.

They work just as good, and no vibration noise if you do it right.

Hmmm, I don't think you got my definition of "mid-case" fan.
By mid-case fan, I mean the fan that would be in the HDD/SSD BAY (the bay below the 5.25" bay that you've encircled with red).

In HAF922 I used sth like that, nothing custom/ghetto and it did great:

I had the older version (not +) and the used one (looked like new) costed me about 10$....

Since I'm cheap, I just stole it from the top exhaust and moved it to front intake. Now I have three intakes and blocked off the top rear fan as ehume suggested. I also took out two of the PCIe slot grills. So all in all, it's an upgrade for me. Once I get some cash I'm probably just going to buy some R4s and replace all these crappy stock fans.

Bam. No "ghetto" mod, 120mm fan mounts. I am not positive that the TY-140 would work with this though. The reason being the TY-140 is 160mm tall and will take up much more than 3 slots, I expect the bay cover will actually cover up a lot of the fan.

So just to be on the safe side, let's assume the TY-140 will not fit in three of the 5.25" bays of my Raidmax Iceberg, What is the next best choice of fans, I'm assuming it would have to be 120mm. How about Scythe GT AP-15? With best cfm/static pressure per dba ratio in mind.

So how do you install a mid-case fan in the HDD bay of the HAF922?

TR TY-140 fan in Antec P180B front bay. I had an extra 140mm fan and figured why not give it a try. It fits like a glove. There's no space on top/bottom to apply some kind of vibration absorbing material, but so far I did not hear any noises. TY-140's are extremely sensitive to any kind of vibration though, I have 6 of them in case and from time to time one of them starts to rattle.

I also cover up the front bay with covers (enough holes there for air to pass). The fan is hooked up to mobo and set to 60% speed. Lots and lots of air even at 60%, does not come even close to my stock TriCool intake fan that is positioned below it.

why would it be messy? toy stores should have silly putty or like stores that sell stationary might have it. its not messy because it doesn't go anywhere, it just stays where you put it
