Best fans to use with the MagiCool Limited Edition "Monsta" 420/360 Triple 120mm / 140mm Xtreme Performance Radiator - Page 2

You need to do some research to find out the thread size used on the rad. Then decide how you're going to fix the fan to the adapter and the adapter to the rad. You can use fan screws to fix the fan to the adapter or alternatively M5 screws. 5mm 'should' be the right length to fix the adapter to the rad but it depends on how thick the adapter is.

You will also need some 3/8" weather stripping to fill in the air gaps when you mount the Gentle Typhonn AP 15's to the adapters, your local hardware store will have what you need. Example below.

How did you do do the 3/8" weather stripping? did it come like that or you had to make the cuts your self and shape it?

The weather stripping came like a paper towel roll, you have to cut them. The reason why I put the weather stripping down low just under the top layer of weather stripping is because it helps the top piece lay flat like a foundation, you have to do this in order to seal things properly! The adapter really do work wonders when using the Gentle Typhoon fans, it spreads out the air just right for these 140mm radiators! If you have an SR-1 radiator then you get the effect of two shrouds! You will also have to dremel the 4M screws to fit them in the recessed hole in the adapers. thumb.gif

****! now you tell me i am going to have to Dremel!

this aint gonna work for me for now since i dont want to waste time dremeling anything.

I am using the Magic Cool Monsta rad. Will i still have to dremel?

Man i really like these 140mm fan adaptors, but you see i am overseas at the moment and all my gear is waiting for me when i return home soon on leave.

This makes it difficult for me to know exactly what type of screws i will need and what not.

My bad there is an easier way to do it, using a 3M screw instead of a 4M screw. When I purchased my screws it was already to late, I bough 4M screws and didn't want to go all the way back to the hardware store.

AP-15s are good fans but I use TK-122s.

Not as loud as you may think. They push a ton of air with loads of pressure. A tad on the thick side but other than that, amazing fans.

Hey Thanks!

Can you explain how you shaped the weather striping to look like that?

How much of the weather stripping would i need to buy?

thanks

The Rubber Foam WeatherSeal (below) I purchased was meant to turn corners, amazing stuff! I couldn't find the correct size of Rubber Foam WeatherSeal anywhere online, but you can purchase it at your local Home Depot. The picture below is the wrong thickness and is only for reference to the brand! The size that you need is 3/8" x 3/16" x 10 ft, its so damn cheap (less than $2) buy two packages.
