Default How to install extra fan like you did

Hi, i was reading your review of the TMG cooler, and i saw that you added an extra 120 fan to the Aurora 570 case. i really like that idea and was pondering that myself. i was wanting to ask, how did you mount that, and what did you use? thank you in advance for your answers. by the way i enjoy comming to the site and reading the reviews .

It is called Velcro Ultra Mate. With it, you can mount fans ANYWHERE.

If you check out my http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/hardw...se-review.html in Section #10 you will see how this is done.

You have actually given me a great idea for writing up a "How To".

Well, it is simple yet effective!! And pretty darn creap.

I even use that stuff to pop a 120mm fan onto a Thermalright Ultima-90.

Thread moved to cooling section.

Yes. You can get Velcro Ultra Mate at any Home Depot, many Wal Mart Supercenters and other places as well:

VELCROŽ Brand Fasteners / Consumer / Where to Buy

Here is the product:
VELCROŽ Brand Fasteners / Consumer / Products / ULTRA-MATEŽ

I got mine in the power tools area of Home Depot.

I actually find the temps in my 570 pretty good with the mesh side (acrylic scratched up to easily) and a 120mm fan on the front. I'm currently running the 2 stock gigabyte fans on the rear but will be changing them out for some high flow fans down the road.

But that velcro stuff will be soon used on my video card!
