Guide on replacing fans(rear and top) P182 case

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I want to replace my rear and top stock-fans with Noctua NF-P12's.
When I look inside I see that the two fans are connected to 2 switches attached to the back of the P182.
I guess I can't use them when I replace the two fans.

Can someone give me a detailled how-to, what to do/step by step instruction?
It's because I have two left-hands and I've never done such thing before.

Hope for your help.

Philip

it's really that simple. Just unplug them before you do that. They should will be plugged into a 4 pin molex connector.

Well, I've read reveral reviews the last few weeks so I decided to put Noctua's in. I don't know the specs voor the Tri-Cools but the Noctua's airflow is 92.3 m3/h.

So I remove the screws and unplug them from the molex.
Do I have to remove the two switces too I guess because there is a wire going to the switch?

Good choice of fans. Just replaced the fan on my CPU cooler with an NF-P12 and I couldn't be happier!
