Has to be if the software is the same

You need to try it with your hand, forst with the original and then your first try. If it blows air to same direction you have succeeded. If you dont feel anything it needs to be reversed. Nothing breaks by trying, in only affects which way air goes (in/out)

thanx, did you also do it?

Funny thing is that Silenx has 3 wire (all black), I just did connect two of them and the fan is not running at all. Perhaps some of the guys who did put silenx in HD I/O can point me to which wire goes where?

it's ok now, just put some other combination and the fan now works and push the air outside. Very quietly!!

Just swapped my fan out with the Silenx one. Its a whisper of air now!

For those wondering, the middle wire of the silenx fan corresponds to the red wire, and the second one that also connects to the additionally supplied power adapter is the black one.

Also using a small screw driver and pushing down on the metal clasp thru the connector hole allowed me to pull it out easily without pliers. It slides right out!
