Stupidly, I didn't align the tabs for the front dust grill properly and it caught on a fan blade and broke it off. The fan is still running fine, for now.

Gonna try to replace it pretty soon though. Just wondering if there's a certain size i need to get with this particular case, or are they all universal?

I've got the Vanquish Level 4 (Original Vanquish), with the cosair case, not sure which case this is or I would research this on my own. A little help here?

Also, is it too difficult to replace? I assume i just unscrew the thing, unplug the cable, and mount the new one back in there, and screw it back on.

Thanks.

(And yes, I feel like a dolt right now.)

I think the original Vanquish was the Corsair 300 R and came with a single 140 mm fan.   You can use any 140 mm. Don't think is was an LED fan, but you would know.

Hope this helps.

Ahh yes, that is the one. So you mean the front fan is 140 mm? Cause it has a rear fan as well.

I'm pretty sure the front is a 140 mm and the rear a 120mm. The front can be built with 2 fans, both can be 120mm or 140mm.

Yep, i just checked the Corsair site. It's 140 mm. This might be a good time to get a replacement with red leds, could look cool with that case.

I agree. Front led fan would spice it up. Or, 2 led fans.
