AC Freezer7 + Vantec Tornado

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to mount this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811999613 fan on the AC Freezer7 with a fan controller to have a 119cfm on my HSF?

Also, I noticed that the Tornado is thicker than an FM91 (my orginal choice) so would it block out any RAM slots? Or would I be ok?

You will have to figure a way to mount it up. The one that comes on it is a 92mm I beleive, and mounts totally different than a standard case/HS fan.

A few people have done this and with great results, if you mount it a tad higher then the ram slots wont be bocked

So I have to mount the fan to the shroud with zip ties? Is that sturdy and reliable? And does this mean that I would have to actually cut the stock fan off of it's base to mount the new one...?

The stock fan is held on by rubber things no need to cut and you dont need the shroud, just put the zip ties through the fins

Dont put it thru the fins for two reasons.

1. That looks incredible tacky.

2. You create a huge deadspot on the HS that way, if you use the included shroud you put space between the two and create much less of a deadspot.


As you can see with mine I used the shroud. It makes it very easy using it. Especially if you need to remove the fan, just un clip it. It is important to remember that you start the zip ties from the back of the shroud and go forward (fits a lot easier I have found). Also yes the zip ties are very sturdy and the fan is still silent.
