How does that work, can you clamp two fans in the middle? But doesn't anyone realize, you can go heavy on this comp since your boss is paying for the cost, if you build one for 2500, he won't give the remaining of the 6000 for upgrades. I suggest you can go heavier, go with an ultra instead of gtx if you can, and pick yourself up some watercooling if you're up to it.

You can attach a fan on both sides.
