Elemet S fan problem


Recommended Posts

Hi, people,

Can someone help me with my recent problem....

I have a Element S chassis, and recently top 230mm fan started to make increadibly loud noise.

I know that its probably end of his life but the real problem is, how to open the case so I can replace it?

Any help would do, video, walkthrough or a scheme.

Thanks in advance.

You have to take both side panels off and there are (I think) six pressure clips (3 on each side) that you have to bend either outward or inward to snap off the top.


Bitfenix Spectre Pro 25mm thick fans work here, as do Enermax 18cm UCTA18A fans, as they have mounting holes that match 200mm or 180mm fans.


These two are also better fans than the original. Apparently Thermaltake 200mm fans are too thick for this application, but I can say from experience that they are good fans too.
