3 x 5.25 Bay Fan Adapter?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey wanted to get a fan adapter for my 600t so I can get an extra intake fan. I know Coolermaster has one but it's frankly very ugly. Suggestions?

Scythe has its Kama Bay which is probably the best looking. Unfortunately it is out of production and is hard to find now.

That Xigmatek looks decent, can it fit standard 25mm thick fans?

Yes, the orange fan which you see in the pic is Xigmatek's XLF-F1253. It is of standard size 120x120x25.

I'm using a MountainMods adapter with a FTWPC fan grill and it works out great, the grill's finish doesn't really match but I was planning on sanding or painting it. MountainMods also has some other options available (acrylic, brushed aluminum, etc...), just browse around.

You definitely want to go with the Mountain Mods one. The others are more about extra hard drive space, rather than cooling efficiently. With the Mountain Mod one it's just about holding a fan there, nothing else. I'd also do the ghetto mod and just use styrofoam to hold the fan in place. Actually, that is what I am doing.
