Fan Mount problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys and gals.

Bassicly on my Thermal Take V3 Case there are two points at the top for a 120MM fan mount.
I'm not sure if it my motherboard height or the case or even the fans but there is always something in the way.
At the moment they are screwed in at an angle , and look weird.
They are about an inch off the case and its really anoyying me.

Any Advice ? thumb.gif

Okay so i just noticed that the thickness of the fans are obviously too big , would it look odd if i mount them ontop and hide the wires an just put a grill on top of them ??

Hmm.. I know you probably don't want to hear this.. but have you tried putting the fans in with the motherboard not in the case?

Edit: You ninja'd me.. As for putting them on the top.. it would work if absolutely necessary.
