Unhappy Please help me find the right fan adapter



Hello all, can someone please help me find a fan adapter 92mm to 120mm that is like in config 2?

All I can find on the net is config 1 setup, my problem is my 92mm fan sits all the way at the bottom of my case and there is no room at the bottom for config 1!

mounting a 120mm alone is not an option unless I change my case!

I want to do this so I can properly mount Corsair Hydro H60, I have it mounted now (temporarily) with zip ties! Please help

this is for Thermaltake Armor a30 intake fan

As a matter of good engineering practice, that would probably be your best bet. You'll probably save a lot of time, and you'll know it's built right.

You can use your current case for another machine that doesn't require the space you need for this setup or sell it to offset the cost of the new case.

Good luck.

If this is your case don't sweat it. Don't use the 92 mm fan at all. Put the rad against the case and zip tie to your hearts content. Myself I would probably cut the case and mount a 120 in push pull for better temps but it may not be needed.

I actually am returning the Corsair Hydro H60 and got myself Asetek 545LC, it has a 92mm radiator, this will sit great with my case. Thank you all for the help
