Yeah I used to struggle to hold my top fan's in position when placing the rad until this build when I had a brain wave lol. Now I use twist ties to hold the fan's in place then i'm able to hold the rad in position while i put the screws through the fan's. It used to be a 2 person job lol.

How do you use wires/twist ties to hold the fans? My rad doesn't have holes all the way through.

I have mine set up as push pull so have to fit one set off fan's to the bottom side and then sandwich the top fans between the rad and case but it's difficult to hold the rad in one hand aswel as placing the top fan's and screwing them in from outside of the case. So I place the top fan's and tie some of the little parts of the fan to the case just enough to keep them in position while I screw in the screw's. The screw's have to go in from outside the case and through the fan's into the rad.

Oh, I see now. It does look like a good juggling act in any case, eh? (Pun intended.) Thanks for the help, at least the H80i has only two fans.

Lol's Yeah it was a real pita but it just came to me that I could attach the fan's first but just use 1 shorter screw to hold each of the top fan's in place and then just use 3 of the normal screw's per fan to hold it all in place

Hey, that's an even better idea. I think i have 30-40 fan screws.

Have a Red Bull on me.

Why I didn't think of it sooner I don't know as I've taken it in and out god knows how many times.
I've not seen those before. I'm trying to stop drinking the S**t though as it's doing me no good at all.
