Hi! I was just wondering if i was about to mount these fans upside down.

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00NTUJRHK/ref=ox_sc_act_title_7?smid=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB&psc=1

I saw some people saying that some fans when placed upside down, On the top of the case facing down bringing air out can cause some fans to break quicker. I was wondering if i bought these fans if they would be okay to mount upside down

I do know for a fact they are Fluid Dynamic Bearing. Thank you!

It would be if they were mine. Fan manufacturers have no idea in what position their fans will used. They would't sell very good if they could only be mounted in one position. Where did you hear that story?

I forgot were i saw it. I think it was another forum post. Someone said that you should not put certain fans upside down due to the way fans lubricated themselves. Also i found this website and it really helped. https://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/779-computer-case-fan-bearing-differences
Thank you for telling me that btw that does make alot of sense.
