Recently Started making my new PC. Now when i came to fan part, i got without thinking Cooler Master Excalibur as i like BBB designs much more. My chassis is Cooler Master Elite 334. Now my question(s) is where to install Excalibur? plus which screws to use? the metal one or rubber one? ( logic is to use rubber to minimize vibration but...) shame there's no guide on Youtube or anywhere on internet. not even on CM site.
MY expertise in my brain say me to install it on back. So i should take off the already cooler master installed fan? and put that one in front? and install this one (EXc) in the back as i don't want to connect it directly to psu. i want to connect EXc to motherboard to be able to control it. My Motherboard is P5kpl-AM SE. yeah don't laugh, its does the job nicely.
Can you now tell me how to install it?
btw extremely nice fan with good reviews. and I need help on cable management too. the parts that came with chassis are confusing . except the strap that i have many more with me, much bigger than the one in chassis.
sorry for long post, but as i go, and my mentality is that the more detail you give the other person, the better he/she can answer back.
the cm elite 334 only has 2 places to install fans the front(optional and the back so install the excalliber in the front using either the rubber or metal screws (go with the metal if u can't install the rubber)
about cable manegement
the elite 334 doesn't have holes to route the cables behind the motherboard tray so i recommend getting zipties to tie down the cables together and use double sided tape to glue them to the case so it looks good
Can you tell me any reason of why to put it in front?
and you just said don't use rubber screws if you cant. well i will greatly appreciate if one can tell me how to. If any vibrations started or too much noise then i will have to take it apart again. so better be safe than sorry.
yes, shame there's not much fan controllers or some kind of solution to install fans and control them through os. the fan controller hardware is for professional users only or one who can afford or need it.
