3 x 5.25" bay 120mm fan

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a bay insert that will allow me to mount a 120mm fan inside 3 x 5.25" bays of my Corsair 650D. The Scythe Kama Bay black is what I am kind of looking for, but I cannot find it in stock.. it seems to be rather old. Any suggestions? Would the Lian Li Triple Bay module fit correctly, it appears to have a bit of a lip on it, so I am worried that it will work properly with the tool-less system. Any thoughts/suggestions are appreciated. I want it to "flow" with the rest of my case, so no silver wink.gif

NVM... I think I have found a solution... it will take a little bit of modding, but it will give me something to do for a least a day, lol wink.gif

BTW... for those who are wondering, NO the Lian Li bay modules will not fit correctly with the front bezel on the 650D.

Thanks to faulkton for a great idea

The Lian Li doesn't fit because there is a lip on it that doesn't allow it to be pushed in all the way on the 650D... as for other cases, I cannot say for sure. The Mountain Mods one that I posted looks like it may have a small lip on it too, so I am hoping that it will fit my case correctly.

I just installed the Lian-Li EX-332B in my ATCS 840. I don't know what you mean by saying it has a "lip". It does, however, protrude from the front of the case. The distance it sticks out is the width of the air filter. It also doesn't push in far enough to use the tooless drive bay holders. It could be that my case is too tight, but I don't think so. I am pretty happy with it. So far thought, with a GT AP-15, it only looks like it dropped my temps by 1 degree C at full load.

I have a Lian-Li EX-332B in my daughter's Lian-Li PC-7FN, with a GT AP-12 (everything else was too loud). I only put it in to give her heatsink some air to breathe. Your ATCS 840 already gets lots of air. For that reason I doubt an EX-332B is going to make much difference unless you put a really brutal Delta in there.
