Tuniq Tower 120 Fan - Page 2

post #11 of 15
in the pic above, that's the front fan on the CM690 case. I just swapped out the tuniq for that one, and i have the tuniq fan turned down low because it's so irritatingly loud. The blue LED's on the fan shine off the caps on the motherboard and make it look pretty without being annoyingly blue LED-like.

Ohhhh, the fan pops out of the mount. Wasn't aware of that, I only have it partially raised out of the heatsink slot. Yea a new fan is definitely in my future.

And in case anyone was wondering, a Q6600 can run at 74*C just fine Nearly burnt my skin off when I touched it lol.

How would you get a normal fan to hang in the center of the heatsink without falling?

EDIT: I mean I guess I could glue extensions to the top of the fan to mimic the ones on a Tuniq Tower fan, but that seems unstable and risky




see on these pictures how there is those bright metal screws going through the fan? remove those take old fan out put new fan in and then put the screws back in. that is all that holds the fan to that piece that you are talking about. just unscrew put in 120x25mm fan and put new one in place.

make sure you tie up the fan's wires when you are feeding the new fan in because if one gets caught, for one the fan won't go back in, and two, the wire's insulating could get cut by the fins posing a shortout hazard.
