Corsair SF600/SF450 [SFX PSU] - Owners' Club - Page 16

post #151 of 154
Not sure if anyone has tried custom cabling / sleeving with this PSU. But let me tell you, I hit a brick wall. A LOT of the cables are doubled-up on the motherboard connector (PSU side). As shown in the images below



I'm planning on opening up the PSU, removing the fan and cutting down the enclosure and have it sit passively cooled by the CPU cooler which should be blowing enough air at it to not be overly concerned about temps.
As people know, the fan operates according to load, not according to heat, or the majority of them are just faulty!? (no one can confirm or deny this right now)

I did change the orientation of the PSU, it use to pull cool air in from the top, but now I'm hoping to use it in exhaust orientation. Even when the PSU is warm/hot, the fan might not even spin if the power load is not optimal.

So my thoughts are, if the fan is not going to even spin, but my CPU fan will be constant, the PSU fan is obsolete. - Once I make the PSU slimmer, I will be able to put another 120mm fan on-top of the heat-sink for a push-pull configuration. the positive pressure provided by the front intake fan will help push the heat away from the PSU and exhaust out the back/side/top.


This was as far as I could get with it today (I need to purchase a soldering iron before i can continue.)

Yeah, I know what you mean, I'm more concerned about the length of cable. That will be the big difference

Damn I wish those had been available when I did my build, I paid a lot more for an EnSourced set, nice find. thumb.gif
