HAF 922 Drive Bay Fan

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've read a few things here and there on some 5.25" hard drive cages, but I want one that I can just simply stick behind the front mesh clips on my HAF 922. I just bought the case a few weeks ago and I've looked at several drive coolers, but really I just want the added airflow and aura of an illuminated fan. I have 3 5.25" bays open, as the top 2 are filled. I don't want a fan cage that will require me remove the 5.25" front clip covers as I want to use those for the dust filters built in. I would like something like the Antec 900/902. Can anyone offer any help? I've googled til I can't google anymore lol.

Cable management is a FTW thing in the HAF 922.

You could always get a 4-in adaptor sort of thing.

Or if you want something cheaper you could try one of these.

you dont need to buy anything to get a fan on the drive bay. if you have the top two slots occupied, it creates a space just enough for any 120mm fan. cut thick foams to cover around the fan and just stick it in. the foams will help keep the fan in place. if you are really concerned that the fan might fall, zip tie it.

just an example, borrowing Qbert's picture from ehume's thread http://www.overclock.net/air-cooling...y-warning.html

The standard 140 fan used as exhaust in the 932 fits PERFECTLY in four 5.25
I have it next to me as I type. I didn't have to buy anything.
