It was here that I ran into problems mounting this fan.  Because of the aluminum casing, standard fan screws are useless.  Evercool provides their own special fan screws, but they are extremely short.  They were so short that I could not mount them in my side window or in the rear of my case.  I eventually decided that the fan would look rather nice on my CPU's heatsink.  I pulled of the stock fan off my CoolerMaster X-Dream heatsink only to hit another roadblock.

It is difficult to see in the picture, but there are 4 posts that the fan holes are supposed to sit into, and there are clips on the top and bottom of the black plastic.  The clips are meant to slip over the lip on the casing of most plastic fans.  Unfortunately this fan has smooth sides and there is nothing for the clips to catch on.

Not to be defeated so easily, I went and grabbed a Thermaltake Volcano 11+ and removed the stock fan.  This heatsink uses 4 very long screws that go all the way through the fan and screw onto the black base.  My problem was solved.
