Yeah great, exactly what I asked for. thumb.gif Do you think it is possible to fit a 140mm fan in a 3-bay area? (don't think so but....)

Ahhh.... Sorry, Really, I don't get it... OK I use longer screws, but basically, how am I supposed to screw these? The fan underneath is obstructing the hole. Sigh, I wanted to post a pic to explain myself more clearly but yet I just can't manage to import new pics with my camcorder on my brand new system... Sorry...

Like my previous answer, I just can't figure out how one can reach these holes and screwing anything since holes are obstructed by fan... whether outside or inside out... And even pulling off the 200mm fan to mount it again later won't help since screws will stop the fan from being in place again.. Your explanations seem pretty simple so there is something elementary that I'm clearly missing... Jeez I'm that slow? confused.gif

Yeah that is a good idea! Don't care about ghetto, on the contrary. Sometimes, ghetto mods, if properly done, are the best since it's the most personalized thing. As long as there is no soldiering iron or saw invoved I'm in biggrin.gif

It's the first time I bough a case of this quality, and I love it so much I had to join this club.

However, There are still a few things mysterious to me, mostly about fans.
Okay, yes, I've done a Google search, of course I've done an OCN search before asking this, but granted, I haven't read all the 337 pages of this thread so maybe this has already been asked before... In that case I'm sorry but I opened a thread and nobody responded... frown.gif

Err, please be comprehensive towards my noobishness on these issues and try not to laugh... Thank you. biggrin.gif

1 - I've seen people having mounted two external fans on the top, outside of the panel without having removed the 200mm one. How is it possible?
I can't reach the screw holes from the inside as the 200mm fan is here... And even if I pull off the 200mm fan and mount it again after having installed my two other fans, it's impossible (or it seems, at least) as there is not even 1mm thick left to work...
How do?
Arre there other mounting solutions (apart from duct tape and / or strings of course, I've seen clear neat installations with ssort of pins in the screw holes to fix it...)

2 - Want to put one 120mm fan on the front like I've seen some users do; guess I need the space of three 5,25" bays and it fits perfectly. But how can I mount it? On what ? Are there supports (mesh...) designed to mount a 120mm fan the size of three 5,25" for it to popiyt in there? Oh, also, please, I can't mod, cut, or use any saw, cutter of any kind. (Yes, I'm a total newb).

Thanks in advance...

2- I just took an old optical drive and tore it apart. And used the bottom tray of it, and mounted my fan to it. Slides in perfectly to the open bay slots. I also mounted my SSD and HDD onto that tray as well. Easy mod, but not as easy as taping it.

Hi Everyone, just a question, can I fit 4 X Noctua P14-FLX on the side panel? I just want to make sure that they do, since I am ordering them soon.

Thanks in advance.
post #3376 of 18197
im afraid not. side panel has pre-cut holes for four 120mm fans close to each other. not for 140mm like NP14 (even they are possible to mount into 120mm holes, they are simply bigger). long story short - you can't do that without modding.

There is something I wanted to ask for a while now as I am really curious.

Is it possible it use 4 120mm fans in a push/pull design up top without a radiator? I ask this because I see some builds with the stock 200mm still at the top as well as a pair of 120mm fans. So I just curious if replacing the 200mm with a pair of 120mm fans would work with another pair on top.

I hope I am making sense if not give me a break it is still really early here. sleepsmiley02.gif

I guess I'm the only one here that likes the fan controller knob. I always leave mine cranked anyway....

Is that a push/pull config on that radiator? If so how did you set that up? I think I'd want to do that with my H100 but I don't really want to cut my case like it's been shown on a previous post.

Ok, I just picked up a White SE 600T and just finished building it (pics soon). Couple things. I noticed like everyone else this case will pop or crackle sometimes. Scared hell out of me first time I heard it. Sounded like an electrical short lol. I need a little advice on my first mods. I am replacing the fans like this...

Front Fan - Coolermaster Megaflow (On Fan controller knob)
Front 5.25 Bay Fan - Arctic cooling PWM 120mm (Daisy Chained)
Top Fans - 2x 120mm Arctic cooling PWM (Daisy Chained) Exhaust or intake???
Rear Fan - Arctic cooling PWM 120mm (Daisy Chained)

All Daisy chained fans will throttle up under load controlled by one of the PWM ports on my mobo. I had this before on my last case and LOVED it. The Coolermaster I will throttle my self on the Corsair's fan controller. My only question is do I take the top fans and make them intake and go for a positive pressure setup or leave them as exhaust fans? Also is it better to put them under the grille or above it? I suspect this setup at idle will be very quiet like my last setup when its done.
