Corsair H60 on rubber grommets

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys! I'd like to know if anyof you have tried to hang a Corsair H60 to his case using rubber grommets. Acoustics always been a concern for me so if it's too heavy, I'll try something else smile.gif

Thanks

Too heavy to hold a rad full of water + 1 or 2 fans, using rubber grommets instea of screws

Depending on the size of the fan, a SILENCER is your best friend.

Maybe I wasn't clear enought, my english is not perfect. What I meant, is those "screws" made of rubber (to replace normal metal screws)

Ah yeah, those little rubber thingies are made to just hang fans and thats it. I used them in a previous build and they worked well! And they made it extremely easy to remove fans afterwards smile.gif

As PeteJM said, you shouldn't really use the rubber screws things for anything other than fans alone.

Get the silencer instead, I use one for my h80, works great.

Then again it really depends on your RPM (faster speeds=more vibrations), all my fans are running at 500rpm.
