    I want to quiet down my new PC by replacing one noisy case fan with two quiet fans. I will need one to push, one to pull, and see no reference in looking at fans with regard to whether or not they are intake or exhaust. Is the direction determined by the orientation of the connector, i.e., can you reverse the direction of the fan by rotating the connector 180 degrees? My mobo connectors are 3 pin. Thanks.

  2. most fans are symmetrical...just turn the fan around...

    It just occurred to me that this is the way most fans work. I should have mentioned I was looking at one made by Arctic Cooling, which is not reversible. Thanks.
