Hey guys,

When doing the 70 to 80mm upgrade, do you have to snap the 2 clamps that hold down the stock fan? I have an 80mm but I need to snap those legs. Is there any 80mm fans that have some clearance so I won't have to break those clamps?

thx

You could try cutting the corners off to help...I just cut the clamps off and hot glued it in

Thx, i'm probably going to do the same. The clamps dig in to the leds on the fan, won't work out.

You meant as in "legs" you meant the corners of the fan right?

nope, that I already dremeled off. The actual support legs that is attached to the xbox case and clamp on to the fan to hold it in place.

This guys cut them off as well, i'm guessing theres no way around it when upgrade to a bigger fan (makes sence). I just didn't want to ruin the case.
