Can't find a fan adapter.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm planning on buying a couple of CoolIt omni ALC coolers for my next build with the revised Silverstone RV02 case. I wanted to use the provided AP180mm fans and connect the OMNI ALC Radiator to is in a push pull config. But the Omni ALC used a 120mm rad...so I was looking for a 180mm to 120mm pc fan adapter but it seems they don't make that size? Anyone know if they exist?

Here's a link of what I'm looking for, but in the 180mm to 120mm size.

They dont make 180mm fans (to my knowledge) so I doubt you will find one.

Maybe break out the dremel ?

180mm fans exist but sadly it's mainly just silverstone.

i made an alumimum plate to adapt 80mm fan for a 65mm cpu heatsink
it didnt work very well

if its for a case, break out the dremel and make it fit

Sorry, you won't find an adapter made anywhere. The closest would be 140 to 120 then you would have to make an adapter plate for your 180mm fan. Seems like more trouble than its worth. Might be easier just use 120 fans.

If you do, I dont recommend the aluminum adaptor. It is conductive, althought it is just an adaptor, any more metal in a case is potential risk. On top of that, it is heavier than plastic and, over time, could do more damage to your heatsink than a plastic one would - if it is using the heatsink 'fins' as support to hold it up.

I would recommend this:

Off course, you dont have to buy it of NCIX but it gives you an option to find another reseller to ship in your area.
