Electrical Question in regards to 120MM Fans

I wanted to know if there would be any damage or performance loss if you were to reverse the polarity on a 120 YS Tech fan to reverse the air flow? I would much rather do this then to have to rip it off and clean up all the silicon. Thanks in advance. -SW

Reversing the polarity on fans doesn't change the direction of the flow. Sorry, but you'll have to physically change it.
