I'm planning to add a 2nd 120mm fan to the front of my case since i have ~4 slots open. I'm looking to buy a 120mm Thermaltake Thunderblade. I was wondering what's the best way to mount it without drilling holes. Would 4 Zip-ties be strong enough to hold it in place?

Zip ties should be fine if you can pull them tight enough, if not just sit and have a look at it for a while see how you could mount it.
