Crb,

Depending on how many free front slots you have, you can do this:

120 mm sits on top of my DVD drive anchored by clear RTV silicone on the bottom. You should have no problem doing it without altering your case but you'll need three open slots for a 120 mm fan.

Hey mate, did you notice much of a difference with another intake? I am looking at putting on in myself.

Yes, we were discussing this in this thread:

There was an immediate improvement of 2 - 3 C running an Orthos test. That doesn't sound like much but in reality it's quite good for just a fan change.

The silicone RTV holds fans like that very nicely and acts like a vibration damper. Ten to 15 minutes set-up for the RTV and your good to turn it on. If you want to remove it, just tilt the fan until it breaks lose and scrape it off. No wires ties needed.
