Installation

Fan installation is one of the simplest tasks we will come across when working with PC’s. You can mount the GELID Wing case fans the traditional way using screws, or you can utilize the silicone fan mounts they supply with the fans (pictured below).

The silicone fan mounts simply require you to start them in the fan hole, and give them a little pull to lock them in place at both ends. Depending on your case, it can be a little challenging to use these.

With my Green Flame mod, I have several layers of roughly 3/16″ thick aluminum and 1/8″ sandwiched together. So mounting fans will require the use of bolts and nuts rather than the standard screws or the silicone fan mounts. My mod is also LOUD (maybe even LOUD) when it comes to fan noise. The combination of the honeycomb mesh grills and the BFG logos creates a lot of noise. To alleviate some of that noise, I will be removing the BFG logos before making any test runs on the fans. I can also easily overheat the system with the dual GX2’s, which is why I swapped them out for a BFG 8800GTS. I want to produce some heat, but don’t want to tank the results if you know what I mean.
