Well this is my first work log so be nice <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /><br />
lol I'm just kidding. Sorry for the lack of images, my camera is low on batteries <img src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
I only use 3 drive slots (including the on and reset switch) so I decided to buy another 120mm fan to fill up some slots above the ICage. Here's my budget install <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
<b>Tool's Required:</b><br />
4- 7" Zip-Ties [The 3.5" works but its easier with the 7"]<br />
1- Needle Nose Pliers [Used to pull the Zip-Ties through the holes]<br />
1- Wire cutter or Scissors [To cut Zip-Ties]<br />
<br />
<b>Mounting the Fan:</b><br />
Route the Zip-Ties through the sides of the bay area under the Tool-Less tabs. You should be able to route it through a small hole between the two bays.<br />
<br />

<br />
Be sure to tighten opposite corners to make sure the fan stays centered. You can also have someone hold the fan in place while you tighten the Zip-Ties. That's what I did.<br />
<br />
Here's the finished result, sexy night shot.<br />

<br />
<b>Notes:</b><br />
Aside from looking good, I did notice a slight temperature drop. It went down about 3-5ºC (CPU Temp)

I think there are slot fan holders for this job but for those who doesn't want to pay for one, it's good mod (faq) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
