Thread: Cooling Fan Size

    I have an Enlight Corp. EN-7230 case with a case cooling fan mount on the back of the case. None of the literature provided by Enlight states what size fan should be purchased to fit the mounts. I measured the spacing between the holes for the mounting bolts and it is like 71.5 mm. Does this mean I need a 70 mm fan? I have only seen 60 mm or 80 mm fans which are close to 70 mm. Am I measuring the size right? Does fan size correspond to bolt hole seperation? I realize I could basically buy any size and just drill the case to make it fit but I would rather not do that. Does anyone out there have this case and know the size?

    Oh yeah, I visited their website and it was no help.

    Are you saying that based on the size I quoted or do you know for a fact that my case takes that size fan?

    The actual size of the fan is measured by the outside dimensions of the fan casing plus also I have 1 sitting right beside me and I've never till now actually measured the the hole centers before. But here is a blueprint of an 80mm fan for ya. ;)
