How to set up anti-vibration rubber rivets for just about any type of lover? Today I installed my new case fans using anti-vibration plastic rivets. At the same time I got some pictures to help clarify how to do it for others as it isn’t as easy as you’ll think! However you can use this guide for any type of fan (90mm, 120mm, 140mm, 200mm, or 230mm) and any computer case. NOTE: All pictures can be “zoomed in” by simply clicking them 😀 (right clicking and selecting “View Image” allows or much bigger image).
Step 1 – Select where you are going to set up your fan! I’ll be installing my followers into the front side to displace the default Corsair 750D enthusiasts. These Bitfenix fans have a higher ventilation than those that come with the situation. So my next fan will be installed below the first lover I installed just. Step 2 2 – Install the rubber rivets into the case screw holes first! First you’ll need to place the rubber rivets in the screw holes. IMPORTANT: Be sure you check which screw holes line up with the fan holes.
You want to put the silicone rivets into the correct holes first time round! You should be very firm (i.e. use some force) to get the rivet to supply through fully. Step three 3 – the washer into place Install! The rubber rivet is installed into the case screw hole Once, the washer can be positioned by you on.
Make sure to press down on the washer so it pushes past the rivet’s “head” piece. Step 4 4 – the rest of the plastic rivets into the case screw holes Install! Again double check where your rubber rivets need to be in order that they are aligned with the fan screw holes. Unless you, you will discover yourself in a right mess uninstalling the rubber rivets to be able to put them into the correct screw holes. Step 5 – Align the enthusiast into place and feed the rivets through!
Align the relevant enthusiast screw openings up with the bottom or top rivets first (it’s simpler to do underneath in this situation). Now would also be a good time to supply through any cables into places where they may be wished by you. Align and feed through the remaining rubber rivets. Step 6 – Finish the installation by acquiring the lover into position! Read before doing this step as it is complicated and tricky!
In order to secure the lover in place, you will need to pinch the end of the rubber rivet with one hands. I would suggest putting your other hand together with the fan. With all the tactile hands that is pinching the plastic rivet; pull (with some force) whilst at the same time pushing down on the fan with your other hand. Try to be careful as I did break one of my plastic rivet minds by pulling too much! You shall feel the rubber rivet clip into place. NOTE: In the picture you cannot see my other hand’s thumb, which is keeping the rubber rivets inside the case.

I did this so the rubber rivet head didn’t get weeded through the situation screw hole. Once you are feeling the silicone rivet clip into place, you should find that the lover part has been guaranteed. Step 7 – Secure the rest of the corners of the fan using the same technique as mentioned in step 6 above! Also check the rubber rivet mind are properly secure! Installation finished. Look carefully in the below picture at how the rubber rivet heads look which means you know if yours is also guaranteed properly.
Here’s the same print from the top and part. I ended up taking out those halts at the trunk because they actually got in the way more than help anything. I also worked well with the two back holes so that I possibly could actually screw this piece to the bottom case. This way I could just use the shorter screws I already experienced on hand and the same nut products on the bottom half of the case. Since I made this right part, the included screws just didn’t workout. Not a big deal since I’ve a lot of longer screws. Unfortunately I also had a need to expand the opening therefore I could easily get the screws in.
So I only used both rear which hold it set up just fine. I did fix this in my cad drawing so the next time I need to print it, it will be correct. Here’s my second print and it’s really nice to obtain it perfectly on the second print. It fit fairly nice now. I didn’t have to force it in. I really do like that it is rather short so there’s plenty of room for the wires in the trunk.
Of course things got a bit tighter with all the current wires and further data cable. I didn’t set up the drive in the back like before and had taken out the extra wire expansion. I could literally hear put three drives in, but I just left both front ones so I can change it and focus on different things instead.
