Adding fans .

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello everybody.
Before i'm buying an fan for my case I want to ask some thing.
So my case has only 2 places to install a fan and they are already installed. Will I be able to Install 1 more by sticking it some where that has no screw holes for the screws?

Without telling us what case you actually have, it is impossible to give you any suggestions. Easiest thing to do is to fill out your signature.

I would get a fam with a led switch, because sometimes you just want them offf.

Have you though about Catho tubes foe interior light?

The Bitfenix Spectre fans sould be decent the Bitfenix Spectre Pro fans on the other hand is crap i know first hand had a 120mm and a 140mm Bitfenix Spectre Pro fan they sucked more butt then air

Bitfenix Spectre fans comes in LED and non LED versions and you can turn the LED version off but you need a Bitfenix fan controller for that
