Antec P182 PSU?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,
As I couldn't find any satisfying thread I decided to make a personal one.

I am buying an Antec P182 computer case, and I was wondering if it's recommended to use a PSU with the fan on the side, or is it possible to use a PSU with a top fan also?

( http://www.sweclockers.com/imagebank/31000/1EZBvv.jpg )
Since it's interior design is pretty special and the PSU space is limited (especially upwards).

Anyhow, those who know, is it possible to use a PSU with a top fan on this case, or do you have to use a PSU with the fan on the side?

Thanks!

I have the P180, and a PSU with the fan on the bottom. There still is about 2 cm clearance underneath the PSU. I use the space on top of the PSU to store unused cables
