Copper cooling thing in the way


Vendent

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone had any advice for me. I would like to put on a second fan onto the radiator, but there is a copper thing in the way. Is there a modified fan out there for sale or should I just take this whole copper thing out?

 

I have a MSI K9n2 SLI Platinum

I can bend it to the right some, but it still hits the second fan. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

you dont want to touch that, its cooling your mosfets.

better to cut a hole on top of the case and mount it there.

or at the very least if you need like a 1/8" you could bend the corners of the fins on a 45 degree angle to make just a bit more room but i wouldnt put too much pressure on it.

best bet is really cut a blow-hole.

Please post a picture of the interference. The fan housing may be the cheapest and easiest part to modify.

I could swap the radiator and fan then place a fan on the back of the case, but as you can see, the ripple in the metal on the back keeps a mounted a fan from operating at 100%. Is there a fan extender piece that would create a better seal?
