Mounting TY-140 in a case with 140mm mounts and not 120mm

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for some kind of adapter to mount a ty-140 (or a similar fan with 120mm mounts) in a 140mm hole with 140mm mounts 140mm yada yada yada.

I've come across this Koolance thing but it's hard to get it, expensive and don't know if it'll work.

228

Does anybody know where can I get something that will do the trick?

A 120/140 adapter should work - here's the bitspower low profile for example... or just search google for more choices. If that doesn't work out, I would consider drilling the right size holes, or change fans.

I don't think that'll work, it's a 140mm fan with 120mm mounts. I can't drill the holes because the fan is supposed to be in some sort of removable tray where the cut hole is too big to drill 120mm holes.

Flip it over and it's a 140 adapter for 120 fans, or am I missing something?

edit:
The fan screw holes will line up but fan hole will not, and airflow will cause blow back... so you are right, probably not what you are looking for.

This is what I have right now:
· A 140mm fan with 140mm mounts.
· A case where I can mount a front 140mm fan, with 140mm mounts.

Here is where I mount the fan:
450

What I want to fit:
· A 140mm fan with 120mm mounts.

Am I explaining correctly now?

Thanks

Now I see the problem. You can (possibly) use zip ties. Other options, making a custom mount plate, or replacing the removable fan mount with 120mm one? Sorry, not sure what else you can do.

So you want something like the the noctua nf-p14 uses, you are trying to mount a 140mm fan with 120mm holes on 140mm holes?

I think I will try to buy a plastic sheet and make a custom adapter. Thanks for the help

You could make some mounts like the noctua ones from an old pci slot cover or any scrap metal
