How to mount GT AP-15's and Rad to Lian Li Top Cover?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a Lian Li A71F case and I have the optional 2x120mm fan top cover that I'm using for my 2 pull fans.

Currently my fans are connected as shown in the pic below. Notice how there
are 2 screws that hold the top cover to the fan (pan head screws) and 2 screws that hold the fan to the radiator (6-32 screws).


Since the Gentle Typhoon requires 1 long screw to mount due to the 'tunnels' where the screws mount, how would I mount the top cover/fan/radiator all using 1 screw like the pic below?


The only idea I could think of was to try and use 1 long 6-32 x 1 1/4" socket head screw?

I was wondering if anyone had a sleeker approach and/or a better idea to mount the Gentle Typhoons to my Lian Li top cover?

I found these on mnpctech.com



but this was the only idea I can really come up with without modifying the fans. These are
6-32 x 1 1/4". The only problem will be if the head on this screw can fit the Lian Li Top Cover Fan Holes.

I have an idea. I could use the above screw w a screw cap (see pic below). This would cover the ugly look of the screw and any spaces it left.



I found the caps at MDPC-X
