  I use hot melt glue on mine. I won't get gooy and let things fall off and
it's fairly easy to remove things when you want to. I've got about six fans
mounted at critical points in mine and they're all held in with HM glue.
Also extra LED indicators brought out and stuck to the side of the case
where I can see them.

  And leaves a hell of a mess of dried adhesive.
