The Z600 does not come with a fan, but
two can be added if so desired. Mounting the fan is much easier than mounting the heatsink.
Fan brackets installed.
Two plastic brackets
screw on to the fan's corner holes and they simply snap onto two ridges that
run down the length of the heatsink. As the Z600 is symmetrical, you can use
two fans in a push-pull configuration to maximize performance. There's also
no problem in ensuring that the attached fan blows not towards the PSU but
towards the back case exhaust fan or vent.
The distance between the center of the fan and the fins is about an inch. It calls for a high pressure fan for ideal airflow.
When a fan is attached, the distance between the center of
the heatsink and the outer edges becomes apparent. This unusually large
space makes it more difficult for airflow generated by the fan to reach
the center and out the other side. Unfortunately, the center, where fin
spacing is tighter, is where high airflow and static pressure are needed
