"Would show photo but dont know how to send atchment"

I think a photo would be useful. You can't send one directly - but you can post it on Photobucket or a similar site, and post a link to it.

I read in a forum that there's space for 2 x 80mm fans at the rear.

I would assume theses are standard 80mm case fans. They normally come with 4 x self tapping mounting screws, which go into the holes at the corners of the fan.

Make sure you get slow speed quiet fans for keeping the noise down.

This one looks good click here

can you tell which forum you saw this on please thank you

This site with some pics says rear fans are 60mm - that's unusual. click here

Here's some more pics click here#

All I can say is, there should be 4 mounting holes at the inside part of the plastic mounting thingy - how far apart the holes are should tell you what size fan fits.

A forum about them click here

Read this description - says 80mm fans click here

Hope all that helps - can't find the original forum again - the above aren't clear as to whether they're 60 or 80 mm fans!!!!

I suspect you push the fan onto the pegs, and put two mounting screws through the holes.

However, for an 80mm fan, the mounting holes are 71.5mm apart (NOT diagonally).

A thought - you could take the mounting bracket into a computer shop and get them to check it against a standard fan for you.

is that from hole to peg the only place near to me is pc world!!!!!!

I'm guessing a bit - but yes, I would say 71.5 from hole to peg.
