Hmm, ya, I see - why not just use small cable ties to fix the fans and you only need 2 ties (diagonal mount) for each fan.

Thanks for looking, and for your response confirming what I saw, View71.  

I don't have small enough cable ties to fit through the fan holes, but I also don't see holes outside the ventilation holes to make that work.  If I had double-sided tape I could have tried that solution, but instead...

I decided to move the fan one row of ventilation holes away from the front so I could use case fan screws.  But that couldn't work either, because then the other side of the fan's holes were blocked by the other row the feet block!  

So I moved the fans two rows away from the front; fortunately my PSU is modular, but I'm still concerned with how little room there is next to the PSU for my cables.  I'm optimistic though; and now those cables will be air-cooled!

I took your suggestion to use only two screws per fan, and you're right, they still seem very secure.  (I'll probably use four screws/fan anyway when I upgrade these two fans 2021Q2 when Noctua's NF-A12x25 comes out in black.)

Incidentally, these fan positions are important to me because I want positive pressure in the case.

just use what fits your purpose and be creative when mounting - those fans are all low speed fans hence no noteworthy torsion force on the screws. Just make sure there is nuf negative pressure in the case to remove the (hot) air b4 you get an hot air oven :)

 

be well..

I think my negative pressure is good.  To help make sure I upgraded the rear fan to an Arctic P14 to go with the 280mm rad in the top (which I anticipate also upgrading the fans on, when Noctua's next gen 140mm fan comes out 2021Q4.  (I'm leaving the front 200mm fans stock, since TT designed the front panel so they're the only 200mm fans in the universe that fit.  Grrrr.)

Hello everybody i have a small problem with my core v71 tempered glass edition, my power led goes of sometimes ore going dull power on the pc. Fans and everything are working great but my power led is going on or off sometimes, when i opened the top case and checked the board i noticed that the led is very loose those two pins that holding the led are very wiggle. Now my question is can i glue that specific part to get it sturdy again, because i know 100% sure thats the problem the loose power led.

Ps sorry for my terrible english, but my question is can i use superglue to tight up the led or can i just pull out the light to get rid of it. Because i am a bit worried it wil shorting the board on the lon run or even damage my motherbord, i cant seperate the led and the power itself because it is using one wire if i am correct. I made a arrow to what the problem is the power led is wiggly when touched, and when i touch it the led goes dull or bright.

Sometimes when i play videogames it also goes off because heat is rising up the case into the led and makes it unstable because its loose. I cant find a replacement part for this case and its only 2 months or so old. I can fix it it think with superglue but i am not sure if it wil damage the led even more. Need some advice or support from thermaltake or u guys.

*Installing my 280mm AIO*

I bought an NZXT Kraken X63.

First I tried installing it above the steel top of the case (in the removable plastic section).  That didn't work because the top wouldn't close (I think because the AIO was too wide; I think a 360mm AIO would have fit up there).

Next I tried installing it at the top of the steel section of the case:

With the hoses on the end of the AIO towards the front of the case, I would have needed to remove the cage that added the 9th HDD tray.  
With the hoses on the end of the AIO towards the back of the case, it fit (quite tightly) against the top HDD cage.

I also noted that I do *not* have the option to install an extra pair of fans onto the AIO for 'push-pull'; this is because of RAM clearance in my motherboard.

My RAM height is 34.1mm; my motherboard is an ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero.

In case I'm not the only one who wondered if the Core V71 would accommodate three 3-HDD cages, I'm excited to report it does!

To do so of course I needed to get a third 3-HDD cage to swap with the top 2-HDD cage. 

Then it was simple and easy:

I removed the bracket for the lower optical drive bay (it was held on securely by only 4 easily accessible screws).

Then I slid the third 3-HDD cage into place.  Only the lower (not the upper) pair of thumbscrews attaching the top 3-HDD cage  fit the holes, but I'm thrilled to report that since it is also on rails, it is (like the other HDD cages) absolutely rigid, it doesn't move at all.

So now, exactly as I had hoped, I have traded my bottom optical bay for a ninth HDD bay!

It looks like I have also made it so that a 360mm radiator wouldn't fit on the top of the case (though a 280mm one will still easily fit).

Hi Coyote, whilst searching the net, I came across this post. I wonder if you could point me in the right direction as to where you sourced these drive cages ? I have just bought a view 71 case and it has arrived with no cages at all  !

Hoping you can help,

 

Regards

 

Ray Stanley.

What software do you usually use for this case? If you're looking for an ideal option to outsource your custom software development services, consider iOS and Android platforms. These two mobile platforms are highly functional, with a wide range of functionality available depending on the device you're running the app on. Both platforms have their own unique selling points, so depending on your business model and audience, you may find that iOS and Android apps are perfect for your organization. On the other hand, there are certain disadvantages associated with using these two mobile applications. To learn more about these disadvantages and advantages, read below.

So I just noticed that my top 200mm fan was loud.  Kind of a lower pitched rumble noise when on high.  on low speed, the sound wasn't too bad.

I tried resting the top fan on top of rubber washers, and it was still loud.

However, if I lift up the fan slightly, once I get about 2 inches above the case, the noise drops down dramatically once it's bringing in free air.

I'm wondering if the fan is dying, or if it's something about mounting it on the top of the case?

(What I have not done yet is tried mounting a different 200m fan on top, either buying a new one or relocating one from the front.  To be honest, I don't think I really need the extra cooling at the moment and I was in a hurry to get the system back up)

@EasyRhino
Since you hear more noise when it's mounted, maybe there's something loose in the upper part of the case?  (Maybe tape something that vibrates to it...like shaver?)

Possibly it already had been loose though, and a new vibration by the fan made it noticable?

In other words, it could be a case issue and/or a fan issue.

HDDs that don't fit cages

I've recently acquired a hard drive that doesn't fit the Core V71's beloved tool-free hard drive cages.  Both because:

1.  The plastic thing that snaps into two holes on the side, only has one hole in the side of the hard drive to snap into.  To solve this, I used screws like in the old days for this HDD.

2.  The two small plastic nubs that stick up from the cage's floor into the bottom of the hard drive, don't have holes in the bottom of the hard drive to stick up into, so I clipped most of them off with a wire cutter.  I was not thrilled to have to do this, so I wonder:

Is there another compatible hard drive cage I could acquire that I would not have to modify any more of my current cages?

FYI, the incompatible hard drive is a WD Gold 18TB (my 12TB version is compatible) model WD181KRYZ.

The new larger capacity drives have moved around or removed their mounting screw locations, and it causes problems with other cases too.  I don't have a fix, but you're not alone.

 

In other news, do folks have recommendations for other 200mm fans that fit this case?  I don't need it to work with the existing fan controller, I just need it to fit in the mounting holes.
