got a hybrid 980ti, its installed in right side fans pushing air out as others push in because i cant figure out how to remove the left side fans and cant find any instructions on how to do so. Anyone know and have a video?

    the left fans are simply held in place with the 4 screws per fan and plugged into the rear fan header. but by default those left fans are pushing out... so how are they blowing in or are you wanting them to blow in? also why would you put the gpu blow out on the right side as that is your cases air filter... you really should have that blowing in, even though your gpu is putting slightly hotter air into the case. trust me when i say that the little heat you add will be worth having a dust free, or much less dust, case by using that air filter.

    was saying i want to plug hybrid into rear to push out like current fans do, right now its in front pushing out and fans below and above it are pushing in. not sure i could even get it to install facing a different way and with the h100i v2 cooler i got for cpu on top i dont think it would stretch to far right side of the top of case and cpu cooler wont reach if i move it to right side. so im stuck needing to put it in back and its already got 4 screws in back connecting fan to radiator so i dont see any way but to screw in to radiator from outside as i cant put screws through back of fan without not being able to use radiator as currently 4 screws go through fan to connect them to radiator and to attach the hybrid fan to case you gotta put screws through cases outside into 4 screw slots that are open on radiator. But sadly their seems no easy way to open back of case up to reach and uninstall the fans on back of case easily, I feel like this was an oversite and one of the only negatives i could find about the case.

    Oh, you mean the left side. Someone posted pics of them doing that somewhere in this sub forum... the only way i can see it being done is to screw the radiator to the fan using short screws that do not pass through the whole fan but only one hole. And do the same to mount the fan to the left swinging door.

    Ended up buying a 120mm to 140mm fan adapter and was able to simply screw radiator to adapter and adapter to back fan by taking 2 screws out of the back fan. Now i have a push/pull on radiator. Door still opens enough to reach back IO panel and i made back fans mesh fit radiators but you can buy 120mm fan meshes to protect wires. Case sits between 21-35 c now depending on what im doing.
