Default minor fan mod

i added a fan today in one of the expansion slots, the glue didnt work out so well when the tower was standing, so i just used some regular old tape and it did the trick

Use JBweld if you're going to do it that way.

Or, use zipties. It won't be very pretty if that falls off and eats a capacitor or something.
