H50 Radiator touching H50 fan connector

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
I just built my first rig and I may have a slight problem but i'm not sure.
In the HAF 912 case i've mounted both the fan and the rad on the top, inside the case because there was no hole for me to thread the fan connector through from outside the case.
Problem now is that the CPU fan connector is touching the radiator.
I think this will be a problem won't it? Any suggestions for what i could do? I'm not modding the case.

Thanks,
Xav

If it's really bugging you, you could plug the fan connector into another point on your mobo. I have multiple points on mine, so I figure you should have at least two CPU FAN points on your mobo. Also, a pic of the issue may help make things clearer.

Could you provide a picture?

Thanks for the replies.
When I got home I managed to change the orientation of the radiator so it was fine.
Thanks again everyone.

was going to suggest some fishing wire to invisibly pull the CPU fan connector away..

You say your not going to mod... but if you were to use a hole saw with a drill (roolly easy) to make a hole for your tubing at the back of your case, you could then do an external mount.. just an idea..
