    Installing fans

    Today I got 2 additionally Themaltake Thenderblade 120mm fans. I got the A60 case and I couldn't figure out how to install Vibration - Absorbent Mounts, that were included with the fans.

    Maybe I can't install those mounts on my case?

    Are those Mounts important? Or I shouldn't worry?

    I was able to install fans and they work fine so far!

    Thanks a Bunch!

    You install them by putting them through the fan whole and case and you pull them until they are in.

    You don't need them, they're only for noise/vibration reduction and maybe for ease of installation. To be honest if there is a noise difference you won't really notice it.

    I don't have them, but from the pictures I saw, the soft mounts and screws are an either/or thing. You don't use both at once.

    Put the soft mount in from the same direction you would insert the screw, through the case panel and then through the hole in the fan, and then pull it through from the inside until it "snaps" tight. You'll probably feel a little pop as it comes through, and the outside should end up flush (or close) to the outside of the panel.
