The good guys at PC Add-A-Fan were nice enough to send a sample of this versatile product to try out. The ancient ones among us remember the Erector Set, a toy which consisted of numerous metal parts to build just about anything you could imagine. The Add-A-Fan parts list is quite an assortment:

CONCLUSIONS

With an MSRP of $18.95, Add-A-Fan is a very handy collection of assorted parts enough for 1-3 cases, depending upon how many fans are added to each case. No doubt you can buy some of these parts individually, but Add-A-Fan pulls together what you need in a handy package.

Thanks again to PC Add-A-Fan for sending this our way.

  1. Wow, this is like a clean version of the coat hanger system I use in my cases lol. I wonder how sturdy this is; the picture with the orange fan looks kinda unstable IMO.
    oh, come on.
    whats the next front page article?
    "service sends professional to hold your hand while you overclock?"
    how can an overclocker NOT find a way to mount a fan?
    ive used hot glue, epoxy, zipties, bailing wire, cardboard and even duct tape.
    i think joe missed the mark here, he overestimated the ailienware jockeys in this crowd.
    i dont like the idea that we are too good to bend our own coathangers. for 20 bucks.
    shoot! paper mache is light and strong and everyone learned that in kindergarten.
    ...and newspaper costs 50 cents!
    at least its not conductive if it breaks loose.
