I think they were Target brand and I didn't take the fan off to attach them, I just wrapped it around the fan and applied 1xrubber hair band to make them stay. They worked great for filters but as b1 said they do inhibit air flow alot. In hind sight it would of made more sense to remove the fans and place the sheets infront of them but oh well. Now I run fanless, except for my hsf, I took some duct and a dremel tool and now I have a direct feed from my air conditioning unit.

Isn't that going to cause condensation?

The condensation rate isn't fast enough to form water on anything. I'm not sure what the CF/m is but the air is expelled almost as quickly as it enters. It's just like having 1 big fan blowing in from the top without the noise.
