So I've been digging around and was wondering if this would work.

Using a Scythe KAMA BAY PLUS mounted in the front which holds a 120mm fan and takes up 3x 5.25" bays.

Then mounting a Bitspower 120mm to 140mm Fan Adapter to the KAMA BAY PLUS.

Followed by mounting a 140x140x25mm Yate Loon 1000rpm Blue LED Fan to the Bitspower 120mm to 140mm adapter.

Thoughts, concerns, or will this not work at all?

I can understand the first part but you lose me when you do the tubing and the adapter from 120mm to 140mm... why would u want to do that? It would be cool to have a pass thru tubing from the front to the back that connects the radiator but wouldn't you want to keep it all 120mm since the rad is 120mm?

Ahh yeah I should have explained the reasoning. Basically, my case has a 140mm fan in the front, located at the very bottom. I wanted to add a 2nd 140mm fan right above it in the 3 x 5.25" bays above to bring in more cool air into the case. I'm going to leave the radiator in the back of the case (as exhaust), but, figured the more cool air i can bring in, the better the temps will be.

The other thought process was, if I cant get the 120-to-140mm adapter to work, so I can mount the 2nd 140mm fan inside the case, then I will just leave it at 120mm and try mounting the H50 towards the front of the case (as intake this time) and see what kind of temp differences I see.

But, preferrably, I'd like to go route #1.

I played with that adapter and it's a pass for me. You won't get the performance you think you may.

Ahh okay. Well, do you know if it would hook up together and fit, regardless of the performance? What if did the KAMA BAY PLUS w/ a 120mm version of the Blue LED Yate Loon then?

I see you are using it strictly as a fan mount? If that's the case then it should be fine. As an adapter to adapt a 140mm to the rad it is fail. At least so far. My Noiseblockers should show up this week, then the game may change.

Btw I have one of those blue 140mm Yate Loons at the front of my case. It quiet and has good air flow.

KAMA BAY PLUS has a real thin fan the
KAMA BAY has a normal size fan and its discontinued and more expensive

You can try just stuffing a piece of foam between the sides of the fan and the drive bay sides. High density foam should have enough friction to keep it in place. Also seen plastic tubing (crushed between the sides) keeping a rad in place.
