Help! Cavalier 3 front 80mm fan replacement

Recommended Posts

Pilgrimx    0

My front 80mm fan just broke down. Before I break anything of the chasis, could someone show me (step by step) how to remove the front panel in order to access the screws of the front fan? The manual ain't much help, it merely says "remove front panel". Question is HOW? Thanks!

You yank it uniformly from all side, bit by bit. Best to start from bottom. If the DVDROM drives get in the way, remove the drive first or you'd tear out it's bezel.

I already broke 1 leg off my centurion 5 bezel hehe, 5 to go.

1) Start By Removing everything in ur drive bay. (5 1/2" and 3 1/2")

2) Remove these Screws then squeez the big black knobs:

3) Then remove the front bezel slowly not to tear the wires.

4) Remove screw of the fan than replace with the new fan you have

Btw mak45, the screws can only be opened by alan-type keys right?
