[SOLVED] 200mm fans do not seem to fit when they should?

Trying to install 2 Noctua NF-A20 FLX fans inside a NZXT H630 case at the front. Nzxt says the front supports 2 x 200mm fans but I can't seem to get them to fit them inside. Am I doing something wrong?
I do have a saw at home if that could be something to use.. My mind tells me to either remove/screw apart something from the case for the fans to be able to fit inside or otherwise install them on the outside, where the front panel would be sitting closely infront of the fans. might fit almost exactly or so but I'm thinking that it might be bad for the airflow or so which I do not want.

Would appreciate some help on getting these things installed the right way!

Why'd you open a 2nd thread about the same thing?
I already answered this in the other thread.

Only other NZXT 200mm fans are going to fit. The dimensions are of the fans, and not the actual screw hole spacing. It was one of those anti consumer schemes.


EDIT: Nevermind. This is actually the original thread - WHOOPS!

There's 4 holes on each corner of the fan and none line up with the slot holes on the case?
They do seem to line up and fit with the holes but the fans get blocked by different parts of the case when trying to arrange it inside the case. My only thought at the moment tho since these do not seem to fit inside at the front is if nzxt fz-200 fans would fit instead, at the manual they seem to do. Someone seems to sell 4 of these nzxt fans on a swedish “ebay” ish site and I’m thinking of getting these and return the noctua ones

Apologies for making a 2nd thread, did not think someone would answer and decided to make a new thread in a different category (case) since I wanted help as fast as possible. I guess I’ll be going with the nzxt fz-200 fans and return the noctua ones right now!
