  1. Yes. The fan adapters will be 2-pin which are for the power.

    Sorry, my question wasn't phrased too clearly. I meant will getting fan adapters to fit 120mm fans into the 80mm fan slots work?
  3. Yes. The spacer will take up extra space so make sure that it will be clear before you purchase anything.

    Will it be less efficient? I imagine so since an adapter has a funnel shape... Btw thanks for quick responses :)

    I am not 100% sure on that but what I would do is use that fan to pull the hot air and blow out of the case. If you use it to blow then it wont be utilized fully because it will only be blowing 80mm and not 120mm. I hope you know what I mean.
  6. I get what you mean. Thanks so much for your help! :)
