    80mm fan on my 9600 pro :D

    It is held on by wire ties wrapping around the whole card.

    @case mod gallery you can see my 2x5.25" bay dual 80mm intake mod. Not quite as ghetto, but it's just stuffed in the holes. Nothing holding it on. The piece of metal across the top just keeps em together

    I don't like to call them Ghetto mods, I like to call them Elite mods because people used their brain to make something themselves.
