92 mm fan in Chieftec case
I'm pretty sure this has been done before, I'm just not sure how to go about doing it. The Chieftec/Chenming/Antec BX series cases have these purple fan brackets used to hold 80 mm fans. I was wondering if all thats needed to do in order to hold 92 mm fans is to remove the brackets, and secure the fans with some screws through the holes near the fan bracket location. Is it this simple or is there more involved?

It's pretty simple, but easier said than done in some cases. It depends on how the back panel of the case is designed. But in any situation, you can secure the fan with zip ties or screws.
I have 92mm fans in the front of mine, and I plan on adding 92mm fans in the rear as well. Just bust out the dremel and do a little cutting, they should fit fine

XP said it all, just break out the power tools, drill out the front and you'll be fine.
Though I think there's only room in the back for 80mm fans. Doesn't look like it'll take fans any bigger. Front might even fit up to 120mm fans... Can't be sure on that, however.
