Can u even get 60mm fans. cant imagine they would do much really. It would look pretty cool though and as i dont use the 2 floppy bays i could do it!

yea, I didnt think they would. Maybe you could run dual 60mm fans in two floppy drive slots. If not, 40mm would work. And the only purpose they could serve is if you had them as exhausts for the heat your hard drive(s) make. Honestly, I havent checked temps. shoot, I never had my setup running without the fan installed so honestly I dont know what kinda temps youd get

i dont think 40mm fans would shift very much air. would probably be pointless

An 80mm fan will fit in a 3.5" bay. I think the fan is only 3.15" inches tall, where as a floppy drive/harddrive bay is 3.5".

It will fit INTO a 3.5" bay, but not stand up straight as the 3.5" bay is only like an 1" tall. lol
