I believe you are talking about pwm fans, you have to turn the fan around. Look at this wiring diagram

Really, much faster to just turn the fan around.

And no, you can turn the connector around to make it spin the opposite direction.

Ive modded these fans and when turning them around they make a horrible vibrating noise. They are used horizontally

I may be wrong, but I don't think fans are designed to work in reverse......sure you can make them spin backwards but the whole air flow dynamic and engineering that when into the fan is now worthless.

Turning them around should not make a difference. Can you post a pic of them mounted? If they are not secured it can cause vibration.

Having mounting holes at each corner on both sides suggests they can be mounted either way, blow air out or in.
