Hello Gang,

I am finishing a build for my daughter's birthday. I chose the Phantom in part because I could get it in PINK. I am adding the 140mm front fan in part to overpressurize the case.

It came with interesting rubber "thingies," grommet-like structures with extension on them. It would appear that they are to be pulled into the holes on the case and then the fan slides onto them; it his correct, or am I missing something?

I'd prefer long bolts, but I don't know if the holes in the case are tapped anyway.

Thanks,
Art

you can use the normal metal fan screws if you want but this how rubber screws are used. i just use the metal screws that come with most fans.

Thank you. I finally found appropriate screws in the (well-stocked) selection of hardware that came with the case!

yeah I was gonna say the phantom comes with those screws. In that case I don't believe the rubber mounts will work up front, the screws need to be long enough to reach the mounting brackets on the inside.

PS, its even harder to fit a filter in there but I managed. ;)

So far so good...idling with MB around 24, Phenom 965 Black Edition around 26, highest I've seen is 32, and that was before I had the sides on to promote real airflow!

Thanks All
