Got a question for some of you who are still using the Xiggy Dark Knight... and figure this would be a good place to start.

I'm looking at maybe upgrading my Dark Knight to a pair of better fans, and mounting them, in a Push/Pull; but I'm not quite sure how to mount them. As the opposite side of the Dark Knight does not have the 'notches' for the rubber mounting thingy's.

Are there any clips that could work for mounting on that side?

I use 8'' black zip-ties and for just a few pennys it's perfect!

Like Freeline said, as far as I know, zip ties or rubberband, or paper clip is the only way to mount the second fan.

The Xigmatek Balder enables you to have 2 fan mounted easily.

sorry, about the late reply but i still do have mounts. but in all honesty, it'd be cheaper to get that xig mount if you aren't taxed.

Although your mounts may be more expensive nafljhy, they look MUCH better
