Brocade 6520 - change air flow direction

Hi,


We have a pair of Brocade 6520s with front to back air flow. We're looking at installing these in a cold aisle arrangement, with the ports being on the outside / warm side of the cold aisle.

Is it possible to simply swap the PSUs and fans so the air goes the other way e.g exhausts on the port side? Does anyone have part numbers?

 

Thanks
