But what if you don't have a radiator on the other side? I'm using the HDD cages on the other side of them.

Plus...if there is still 5mm of play inside the fan bracket...wouldn't you get a lot of movement (rattling)?

If you don't have a radiator on the other side, then a 5mm gap wouldn't matter would it? it's not like the case is air tight.

Not if they're secured. rattling is only from two metal parts that are less than 1mm apart and able to oscillate unless the device has ridiculous amounts of vibration.

But they wouldn't be secured. The threads on the fan bracket attachment are at the front of the bracket (front of the case). If you put the screw in the front of the bracket....the fan is never secured. If you put the screw in the back of the bracket...you've got 5mm of play where the fan could just slide around on the screw

This would be a non-radiator fan screw... It secures quite nicely.

[Edit]
If you wanted to use the front threaded holes, you could use a short screw and put it between the front and back plates of the fan (unless it was a fan with no gap).

No luck yet in the caselabs thread; I'll post pics later tonight.

Send Jim and e-mail, it's best to talk to the inventor/creator!

Email out to Jim/Caselabs. Here's pics of the holder.



Here it is in the case, you can see the gap.

Ok, so is the issue regarding airflow, noise, or just the fact that there is a gap?

Also, is it feasible to attach the fan on the front side and have the 5mm gap towards the rad like a fan shroud?

If you are trying to take up the gap using long screws you can go to an auto parts store and buy some 3/32" vacuum tubing and cut it to make rubber spacers for the screws. I did this for mine, which is a slightly different setup than yours but it took the slack out.
