Can't change stock N600 fans' orientation (or can you?)

Go to solution Solved by ZetZet,

There are no threads, it's plastic, you just screw it in an threads happen.

Hello. So I was trying to "dustproof" my case and wanted to make my rear fan as an intake. I removed it from its stock position and flipped it (positioned it as an intake). Started screwing it in but I can't fit in the screws.. Then I looked carefully and found that there aren't any threads on the opposite side of the fan. The only threaded holes are on the back side of the fan (where the sticker is)...

Does that mean that I can't install it as an intake? The fans are stock fans from Cooler Master N600 case.

Thanks in advance,

Jonas.

Yeah fans dont come pre threaded... The screw makes the threads when you install it the first time so its fine.

The rear fan doesn't have a dust filter, so if you plan on using it as an intake, make sure you get something that can be used as such. fine mesh ideally, but a piece of old pantyhose could do the trick.

Also if you have an aftermarket air cooler (I see yours is stock but I'll mention it anyway), make sure it isn't blowing towards that fan as you'd be reducing the effectiveness of both.
