Yeah, I am pretty sure I need to change the fan so they blow air in. Im not sure how to remove the fans so I submitted a ticket.

They aren't just screwed to the rad with Phillips head screws?

The screws are on the lower side of the fan mount like not at the top where I can just unscrew it real easy. I dont remember if its a phillip head to be honest ( im at work now). Ill have to check again when I get home. The manual doesnt talk about it at all.

I have the 240 predator in the front sucking air into the case, cooling a 5820K. There is a 140mm fan just below it to send cold air to the gpu (MSI GTX 970 Gaming).
I just flipped the fans (allan screws) and managed to tuck the wiring pretty neat. Don't cut the zip ties. Just adjust them and mount them again. I also mounted it with the pump/res on top.

I'm running 4.2GHz 24/7, temps are fine for CPU and GPU

Only sound i can hear from my Define S is the slight pump "whine" in normal use.

I'm sure enough of you have this installed that we should start seeing some pics? Yeah I know there's been a few but I need more!

Would love to see the different cases this thing is going in.

which allen key did you use? I need to do it too. Looks like TPU had the same problem reversing fans:

If EK changes this design element it would have earned a perfect 10/10. The only other issue I will mention is if you plan to remove the fans or change their orientation be prepared for headaches. The Hex key screws are of two different sizes and in my personal situation my Hex key set did not have one that fit. Hopefully EKWB will had a hex key in the future for this purpose. Still these issues only apply to those seeking to change the Predator kit. If your gonna set it forget it and call it a day then you will never run into this problem. Still a standard set of 6.32 longer radiator screws would have been prefered.

I think it is a 3mm allen key, the numbers are scatched away. But who buys a single key anyways? smile.gif
