Windows 7: New Fans.

New Fans.

Hello,

I just bought some Yate Loon fans, and it appears that there are no screws. And it also seems like, there's no screws following in my motherboard case. Do I really have to buy them myself?

Normally, no, they should be included with the fan. I have yet to buy a fan that didn't come with them. Consequently I now have tons of spares from replacing worn out fans.

You might consider some Fan Vibration Isolating Mounts.

Yeah that's basically what i'm looking for. Actually it's quite bad that Yate Loon didn't warn me about such things.

Thanks ^^

I guess they figure most users have a big stash of screws for drives, fans, motherboards, etc. laying around. I have tons. Strip an old case or two and you will too. I actually like those isolating mounts - not only do they ensure any fan vibration does not resonate through the case, but they don't cut threads into the metal like regular fan screws do (same with some heatsink fans). When you use a screw to cut threads, the "cuttings" or tiny metal filings have the potential to end up bouncing around inside your case - particularly when you remove the screw. Something about metal filings bouncing around inside electronics just does not sound right to me!

All the fan screws I have screw into the plastic fan frames, not the case? I've been contemplating getting some of those isolation mounts. The fan in the front of my case is quit loud and needs to be replaced. To get the screws out I have to remove the whole front panel of the case. If it wasn't such a pain I'd have done it by now. Using those rubber mounts should be a lot easier and I'd never have to touch a screwdriver.

Got the problem solved with strips.

Now, is it possible to go from 12V to 5V in BIOS? And is it riskable? Is it possible again, in BIOS, with no controler and sutff like that?

No. Why would want to do that? Many devices (fans and drives, for example) need 12V to run.

It's just quite noisy. Not to mention really noisy. I don't know if it's because it isn't installed right, maybe there's a little space, there and there.
