I paid 9 Euro for both the 120mm and 90mm versions, new model. I've no idea if the price changed when they changed models since I never bought any old ones.

The site I bought them at has the 80mm model listed for 8 Euro. The black and white and orange 120mm are the same price on this site.

This is in the Netherlands though, might be cheaper here since Nexus is a Dutch company.

I know an easier way.

Just use a soldering iron and burn your way through.

There is a purpose for closed corners on these fans. How many coolers have you seen with open corners that are bent by the tightness of the screws? A closed corner allows tightening the screws for situations like radiators with push pull.

I wonder if this would work with the top-mounted fan on an Antec 300 case. That thing is silent by itself, but is creating some serious vibrations in the case.

Edit: nevermind, I see there are some rubber mounts for "closed" fans as well: ... s_id=20645
