Adding 120mm fans to front of Fractal R5, how do you do it?

Recommended Posts

This may seem like a bit of a dense question. The 140mm fans that fractal provides are clear, you screw them in from the front of the case into a provided hole.

 

But the 120mm mounts aren't a hole per se but have a slit that lets you move the fans up and down, the problem is the screws that fractal provides, which are already very long, aren't long enough to go through regular sized 120mm fans and into the holes when mounting from the front (At least not the noctua 120mm I was adding).

 

Are you meant to remove the hard drive cages and instal the fan from inside the case? The instruction manual isn't clear.

Not too sure what's the problem is, as far as a know, the HDD cage can be remove. If it is getting in your way, you can temporary remove it, secure your fan and reinstall it. Also your Noctua should come with screws, you should use those instead.

It was mostly you shouldn't have to remove the HDD cage and screw them in from the rear. The fan is meant to be screwed in from the front at least what I can tell it is.
