I'll have to get a measurement and I'll PM you, but that fan is identical as the stock fan just no LED and black

So UPS dropped the ball with my graphics card and I've had a nearly complete system collecting dust for a couple of days. I sat down to do some rewiring with the horrible molex connectors in the scout (my only complaint so far, and an easy fix) and I'm thinking that I can make better use of the top fan. Any suggestions for mounting it in the drive bays?

Hey Southie, Great Paint. This my first time seeing a White inside on a scout and If you would have asked me for recommendations on the color choice I would have said it would probably not be that good of a Choice. WRONG. It is an Excellent Choice. That white really Sings with those fan blades. Great Job. Great Imagination and a Really smooth Paint job.. Rep up for your Work.

im thinking about selling my corsair one, it makes everything so much harder when i have a spare 4 connector molex cable and sata power cable not being used, as well as two extra pci-e's.
Sleeving the front panels are super easy and damn hard at the same time. You have to take the connection at the the mother board off and remove the pins from the USB and Sound headers.. Marking all of them or making sure you have your Motherboard Book handy to locate all the wires .. Check you color code on the USB or make Notes with good old fashioned Pen And Paper.. Then tape the end of the loose wires together tight and work the wire loom over the wire and until the wire loom disappears into the top of the case. Pull back a little and cut your Sleeving and the set your shrink on the end and melt it. Then slowly and surely replace the wires in the right positions.

The Kingwin has the best connectors. Most have the Mainplug and the 4 and 8 pin CPU wire because they don't want any resistance in those circuit and they are always needed.

I like the Corsair because of the flat cables but the Xigmatek and the OCZ are good too.

It does not impede airflow. the PSU sucks air from the bottom and blows it out the back and there are no reasons to keep the wires that low cool.

Some zip ties and some foam strips around the edges to isolate the vibrations.

I have a 120mm placed in the front of my case in the drive bay, i have my cd/dvd drive on the second row starting from top down. A 120mm pretty much fits perfectly in from the bottom of the drive bay to the spot where my 120mm is with about quarter inch left to work with. I have it wedged in at a angle.

Its definetely the loudest fan in my case though because i dont have any foam or zip tie but i feel like it helps cool the pc really well.

you can take a piece of plastic like i did and cut a fan whole and screw it to that and and then screw that to the case, and it will keep it form vibrating.
