what actually happened when you disassembled the fan, treefrog? i know some fans are designed to have removable blades for cleaning and such, I am not sure if this is so with scythe's.
I could not reinstall the fan to the shaft on Scythe and Antec 120mms. None of my models were designed to be removed, and appeared to be mounted by the friction of the blades receiving slot with the fans' shafts. I was unable to re-place the fans to the shafts with sufficient pressure to hold. After ruining one scythe and two antec fans, I decided to mask the housings on their replacements. That worked.
