Im getting the TR ultra 120, and i saw people attaching fans to both sides of the CPU cooler. I was wondering would it work if i put two of these fans:

your best bet is to get to high cfm fans and also possibly a fan controller! I'm using delta fans which are very loud at 4000rpm but I heard the silverstones are just as good

avoid silenx fans. i would suggest a scythe or if you got the cash, a noctua fan. if you don't mind the sound, just buy a cheap rosewill form newegg.com

Thermalright includes one pair of fan wire clips (for one fan). To attach two fans, the easiest safe way to do it would be to use nylon zip ties.

Be advised that, for best ease of use, the fan you choose has to have "open" corners in order to use the fan clips. The fan clips hook onto an open hole in the corner of the fan. "Closed" corner fans need to be modified with a saw or a high-speed motor tool with a grinder attachment in order to work with the provided fan clips.

Hope this helps!

I used Velcro!!!
You don't have to cut it everytime you clean or swap fans, like you do with zipties.

Grunion,

where did you get them velcro ties?

Also, isn't there a danger of the fans' natural vibrations working the velcro loose over time?

Just curious.

Thanks.

I got the velcro strips at a little fabrics store, where you buy fabric for clothes and furniture.
The fan is very secure, it's not moved 1mm, the 3m tape works great for keeeping the fan in place.
