    Any ideas how i can do this, i want to mount 3 fans without using screws.

    Anyone know of something i could use that will actually hold them? They will be on low/slow settings.


    Anyone know of super strong double tape?

    Don't want to use anything like glue that will wreck the case but maybe if needs be...


    Maybe Velcro?

    Thanks guys sorry for being weird.

    You could try something like heavy duty double sided tape but I don't know how it would hold up if the inside of the case gets too hot.

    Buy the 3m velcro that fits picture frames to the wall I done this for my commander pro plus you can remove it with ease with no residue left over.

    Also anyone know where i can buy some little brackets that will connect my fans together so they sit on top of each other nicely?

    What stupid brand of fans are these, that they have no mounting points?
    I have a drill. Several, in fact - Whereabouts in the very specific area of 'England' are you?

    I'm in Barnsley/Sheffield, they do have mounting points. Just the part of the case I want to mount to has none. Just flat(ish) metal.

    Oh riiiiiiiiiiight..... Sorry, it read like the fans don't have holes - I though that was a bit unusual!!

    Case modding is all part of the fun... and being from Sheffield, you ought to be swimming in high quality tools!
    Is there anyone local with a drill? It's a pretty quick and easy job - 10 minutes, including making the tea and having a fag.

    I guess I could just drill them yeah but It would look a mess if I ever wanted to take them out... There would be holes where flat metal was before hand

    Thought of another fix get magnetic adhesive strip that may work better.
