ultra 120 extreme fan installation

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I got my TRUE, but I'm having issues attaching my 120mm fan to it. Does the wire go through those holes on the side? The instructions are so crappy I can't tell. Can anyone help me put the fan on this thing?

There's two small holes on either side of the Ultra 120 Extreme for those fan clips to attach to. The other ends of the clips go into the fans, as clearly evidenced by the above picture.

Stil the tip hooks in the rungs of the heatsink.
And the clips go into the mount holes on the fan.

Ok so when I installed this thing, it kinda slides around. Is that normal? Was there a way to attach the heatsink to the bracket that goes onto the motherboard?

Yeah it's normal for a little bit of movement.
There is a washer mod that will increase the mounting pressure.

EDIT> Here's the mod thread.
