    No I didn't. :oops:

    I just looked at the fans I sell and realised that the screw areas are tubes, not a hole in each flange with a gap.

    Maybe I can get a photo or two from members that have used them.

    Metal or timber screws at suitable length work fine

    I now have 40mm, 60mm and 80mm vents back in stock as well as 60mm 5V, 60mm 12V and 80mm 12V fans. The 60mm fan meshes are expected soon and I'll post out back orders for those as soon as they arrive. The 80mm fan meshes are in stock.

    More 60mm vents have arrived and I'll be updating the da-Share inventory shortly.

    I've just updated the da-Share inventory so stock levels should all be accurate once again.

    Would you recommend 60mm vents for a cg1500? I'm thinking one intake on the front of the case (towards the bottom), and one on the back of the case towards the top to exhaust via a fan. Thoughts?
    It's only going to have a single rsp-320-5 in it

    The 60mm vent will fit onto the curved face of the CG-1500, but you may need to use some silicone to make sure it's sealed.

    A good rule of thumb is to have the same airflow area for intake and exhaust, with the fan pushing air out at the higher point.
