    I've just bought these 2 from mediapc.tv and the screws with the NT06 are too short to go right through the fan holes and reach the metal.

    I don't see how I can use the squidgy things that come with the Noctua and Jason is on holiday or I'd ask him

    Any thoughts?

    thanks a lot

    Th rubber mounts are easy to use, but they might be too short for what you need if the normal screws wont reach. Best bet is to get longer screws from an electrical or diy store.

    Yes, this is it. It comes with screws that are not long enough to go through the fan. I guess I'll be rumaging around a diy store and having to buy a pack of 50 or something...

    When you install the fan there should be some small rubber/foam strips. Place these between the fan and the heatsink. This will stop vibration being transmitted from the fan through to the heatsink. If there arent any try and get some yourself. :)

    Solved,

    a very nice man in the computer shop (teknophobic.co.uk) in the bottom of the bargate shopping centre of southampton gave me two screws. He wouldn't take any money either.

    Thanks for your replies
