Noob case fan size quesion

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Sorry i should know this but i don't as I've only ever used 120mm case fans. I have this non branded case and would like to buy a led case fan for it but not sure of the size? I'm guessing 80mm but i don't know for sure. Here are some pictures and a 120mm for comparison.

Get a different case, unless you have a low-footprint case. Your back window on a normal case should accommodate a 120mm fan. If it won't accommodate that, you might not be able to fit a normal full tower heatsink in your case. New cases are cheap.

 

If you decide to keep that case, then cut out your rear grill rather then put a fan there. See items 2 and 7 in my sig.
