HELP! Font fan install Antec 300 2!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello!!

Wow...been awhile since I was on here...I went Mac for a few months and omg am I glad to be back! So anyway, I am trying to install front intake fans in my Antec Three Hundred 2. And I cannot seem to figure it out! The holes that are there are too small for fan screws and if I use a smaller screw, they don't fit into the fan.

The Antec 300 had nice little pop out doors that the fan installed onto, but not the updated one.

Suggestions or am I just being an idiot??

Thank you! smile.gif

This case comes with 8 long fan screws for the front mounting points. See page 21 of the user manual here.

I was looking around for an answer on this same problem and glad I found this, gonna be getting one of these cases soon, Its nice to see that the holes are predrilled to mount the fan screws instead of hurting my wrists using the standard fan screws into the plastic casing of the fan like on the older revision of this case (done 4 builds in the original revision)

Very Very nice case btw, glad they kept most of the things on it I loved, and fixed so many other things on it I wanted such as the PSU filter (to allow better cooling of PSU with outside air), better cable management, sideways hardrive bays (to allow more room for video card installs), and exaust fan mount behind the motherboard trey.
