    Hi buddy, i have loads of non led fans in 120mm or 140mm, most unused.....just pulled from new cases and replaced with pretty light up ones....love my lights ;)
    I would have to dig some out, so what do you need, size / quantity?

    Regards

    That'd be lovely mate, non led are ideal, as long as they're quiet :) a couple of 140s and a 120 I think should be fine if you have them? Let me know what make and model and how much you're thinking.
    Cheers!

    1 x 140mm NZXT RF-FN142-RB standard 3 pin with black plastic cable
    1 x 140mm Aero Cool (Alpine) DF1402512SEDN 3 pin / molex, with silver plastic cable.
    @ £3 each + p&p
    1 x 120mm Noctua NF-P12 (Brown / Cream) black braided cable, 3 pin
    2 x 120mm Silent Eagle Black frame, white dimpled blades, white braided cable, 4 pin pwm

    Thanks for looking for these for me :) Sods law my new case has a fan controller but only supports 3 pin ones! So have you got 4 of the NZXT RF-FN122-RB at all? How much for those inc P&P, Jamie?

    Hi buddy, it's real easy to mod the 3 pin connectors, just trim the little bit of plastic on the side (the bit that blocks a 4 pin) with a sharp stanley or craft knife....done it many times. If you prefer the NZXT's it would be say £10 inc postage?

    Regards
    Jamie.

    PS, I also have 4 or 5 brand new Antec true quiet fans, they have been partially modded to add led's, but i can take the led's out. If you are interested in them, i will dig them out and take pic's so you can see what i have modded.

    I'd still need 4 fans anyway I think, how much for those antec's? Don't really need the LED's as I say as they'll be in a closed system :)

    I'd do the Antec's for £12.50 inc, but i will post pic's first, so you can see what i have done to them, they may not be suitable for your use.
    I will dig them out, and post pic's.

    Regards
    Jamie.

    No worries. As long as I can use them to get a decent bit of airflow going, its all good. I wonder if it would be better to have 2 of the antec's and 2 of the others and have them as sucking air in and the antecs blowing the air out?

    How are you going to attach them to the case?
    What i did was to cut the silicon mounting grommets in half to allow fitting of led's, so the normal "self tapping" type screws won't work. I have some silicon mounting pins i can throw in (see pic's) you can have 8 black + 8 yellow, or 16 yellow. They can also be attached to rad's etc using long screws.
    You can have 2 NZXT & 2 Antec, or 4 NZXT, or 4 Antec, as you are using a fan controller, you can balance in / out flow, whichever fan's you choose.

    Sorry for the delay, been cutting the grass!
    I'll be putting 2 at the front of the case at the bottom to bring air in, and then 1 at the rear and 1 at the top of the case ton push air out.
    The antecs look great, I'll go with 4 of those with the rubber mounting pins then please :) a mixture of colours is fine.
    Drop me a pm with your details and I'll fire some cash over to you with my details too!
