Does anybody know of anyway to reverse case fan blow direction without just flipping the fan around? I know it won't be quite as efficient, but it's necessary for what i'm trying to do.

yes turning it arround will change its direction but explain what your doing because generally its a very bad idea

That's kind of inconvenient too as the stock fan has those weird mounts, unless you have a modified fan.

blink.gif That well just fry the fan.

Theres no real way to do it. Well atleast a way thats worth the time and $$$.

Your best bet is cutting those little tab things off that slide into notchs on the back of the case. Then making the power wires longer.

it's actually not for the stock xbox case fan and there is no way of just flipping around the fan I have for what I'm trying to use it for, but I was hoping there was some way of reversing the direction with a special cable or something maybe, like they do with servos. Oh well...
