Default Need a "How to replace 650D fan switch."

Hey all, I need a little help here.

I recently bought a system through Digital Storm. After about 9 days of use the fan switch died. (Confirmed) They are sending me a replacement switch that should be here Wednesday.

Would anyone happen to have a video or step by step guide on how to replace it? I'm guessing I'll have to take the top off somehow, but honestly have no idea. I'm pretty much a noob. Hence the reason I bought a pre-built system.

Thanks for any and all help!

Wait for RAM GUY's reply.

I think the fan controller uses two screws to secure it which is located under it (inside the case).

As Toasted said its very easy to remove and replace, just take the front facia/cover off the case, their are 3 clips on each side. You'll need to take both doors off to get at the clips, start at the bottom and press the clips on each side at the same time and apply a bit of pressure towards you at the same time, you should feel them ease out. Then move onto the middle 2 and do the same, then onto the top 2 and do the same.

Its just 2 screws on the under side of the fan controller that you unscrew then you should easily be able to remove it, just shine a torch on there and you will see them.

While your in there you can remove the hotswap cable if you don't plan on using the top hotswap bay, from memery its just 2 or 3 screws to drop the plastic hotswap tray then slide the cable out, the cable doesn't unplug itself as its hard wired, you need to remove the plastic connector that its attached too. It just makes cable management easier, you can go even further buy removing some of the front i/o panel cables by taking that off and removing the ones you don't need.

Thanks for the reply Josh. The optical drive somehow seems caught up on the front of the case. When I move the case front, the Optical drives comes with it slightly. I have no idea what to do.

Also, the optical drive in mounted right underneath the switch. I hope I don't have to pull that out as well.

Frustrated.

You need to take the optical drives out before you take the front panel off, just presumed you would do that.

I've run into a problem there as well. I undo the snap on the side, and the thing won't budge.

There are snaps on both sides of the front panel. Once the optical drive(s) are removed the whole panel should come right out. You have to pull both side panels off to access the snaps first though.
