@Aidan Very Very clean work man easy 9. I also like "Case Turtle" I really like the very very high tech mounting device u used for the cold cathodes in the first case. I had to do that for a while. Im using the velcro now.

Speaking of painting. I recently decided to try and paint my Noctua DH-14 fans black and realized the difficult way that not all fans are meant to be taken apart.

They must be different to the nf-p12s then coz all i had to do was peal off the sticker which also removed a small magnet with it and then push on the blades til they popped off.

What happened to yours?

Pretty much this. I was also trying my 140mm, but when i tried the 120mm as well it gave me to much resistance and i didn't want to break another fan.

Not to sound rood, but it's because you were doing it wrong.

You can take them apart, it just requires time and patience. For those, you have to take the magnet off the back end which took awhile for me.

It really depends on the bearing type.

Magnetic Bearing fans (aka Enermax's) are the easiest to take apart.
Sleeve's are the second easiest
Ball Bearings are the third

And then it just gets complicated from their. Noctua's are not easy, but they're not the hardest kind.

Hydrostatic Bearings (like the Sony Fluid Dynamic Bearing) is one of the hardest, because if you don't refill the liquid and reseal it properly. You've trashed the fan and only really have a good shroud at that point.

No offense taken. I did remove the magnet. Please by all means let me know how to do it. I just so happen to have a replacement 140 in my hands right now. My buddy changed his fans and gave me his. How do i take it apart? Also how do i remove the dang fan clips.

I used this guide:

With mine it did require quite a bit of force but eventually it popped off cleanly
