Default How to mount fan

I'd like to mount an 80mm fan in two of my 5.25" bays. How do you guys secure the fan in the bays? Any pictures of how it's secured?

Hmm...

While zipties would work, I was hoping for something a little more professional.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Well yeah, but then I would have to spend money.

I have an ugly 80mm fan sitting here collecting dust, I figure I should incorporate it in somehow.

Maybe I'll get enthusiastic and make some brackets or something.

Zip ties are my best friend.

This is what I got so far, I gotta tidy it up a little though.

I'm going to get a pair of 70mm blue LED fans to stick in there, that way I can get two side by side and they'll look pretty.

See if you could put 2 in there just to make it look a bit better.
