Default Help me find a good use for this fan

I have a ThermalTake Tsunami Dream and I want to find a good place to put this This .

I was thinking the best place would be on a Cpu Heatsink that could accomidate an 80mm fan facing perpandicular to the motherboard. So, does any one know about a CPU heatsink like that?

That would look really cool on a CPU heatsink, definitly put in a spot were you can see. If you have a intake fan on the side, put it there.

i have a spot that could accept it or a 120mm fan and I'r rather put a 120mm fan there. a cpu fan would prolly be the best place. bu i cant think of which cpu heatsink to attach it to.

I have the tsunami and have a spair 120mm fan that i dont know what to do with :S any suggestions on that would be appreciated.

Why dont you change the 80mm fan on the side panel to that one or have you made the hole bigger to fit a 120mm??

there is an 80mm fan in the window which you/i could make bigger but theres no other room for it to fit on the window. as the hardrive cage and everything. i want to change the front (top) panel audio into an 80mm fan blowhole which you could also try doing. Im just too scared that i would screw it up. Try that if you like and post back with pics!

Do that, drill some holes, and mount it under/above your harddrive.

I dunno if a 120mm would fit, and I don't feel like taking mine off to test..but an 80mm will fit easily.

Well an 80mm you can fit inside the cage and mount it to the screws that mount the hdd. I'm not sure a 120mm will fit in there though.
