[The Official] NZXT Vulcan Owners Club - Page 41

post #401 of 2409
Hey, all you Vulcan owners! I'm very happy to join you, my Vulcan came in last week. I have a thread about the build progress HERE.

Yesterday I came onto an issue and I would be very thankful if someone could give me any advice on how to solve it. So the issue is: I bought a fan controller - Scythe Kaze Master Ace KM02-BK-5.25. It looks very good with the Vulcan's front panel but the problem is that it's mounting panels that go into the 5.25 bay on the left and right are too short to reach a place where they can be properly secured. It lacks 15-20mm at least to the nearest screw holes

So anyone have any suggestions? Anyone mounted an additional fan controller into Vulcan and has some experience? Any help greatly appreciated!

I own the Scythe Kaze Q 3.5" bay fan controller and I could only secure it on the back end with a total of 2 screws. It'll just have to do. Mine pivots at the screws but it's tight enough that it doesn't slide around. Just manually support the controller until you snap the front cover back on. It should be fine.

Thanks for your reply! But it's a nogo for me - it's quite stiff when i start to push it inside the slot but as soon as it aligns with the ODD it becomes very, and I mean, very loose - like you can push it all through inside the case with a touch of one finger...

I actually came up with two ideas when i brainstormed through the issue yesterday - first the simple one is zip ties but I have a feeling that zip ties would secure it from falling out outside of the case but not inside... or maybe zip tie real stiff, maybe that would help.

The second is actually quite a bit harder to do - it's to take two pieces of metal - one for the left side and one for the right side and drill some holes in them - and so to attach the fan controller to them and then attach them to the case... now that would be a lot of work for such a small piece of hardware...

What do you think?

If you could give me some pictures I could visualise it better to help? As it is, I have a few ideas, but no clue if they're even worth mentioning.

I'll take pictures as soon as I get home, at work right now, but I can draw some simple sketch to show, if it's unclear. Thanks, anyway!

Here it is anyway, sorry for crappy drawing but I think it describes the overall situation.
