Top or Bottum?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is there really any difference which side the PSU is mounted on? I currently have the Cm 690 which is bottum mounted. Seems to be alittle more convinent.

Never really mattered to me but I'm a classic, so top mounted in this case.

Personal preference really, although if it's at the bottom of the case it more cause more EMI for your sound card (Electrical Noise). Also, it may be hard to reach cables to the motherboard in certain spots if you have a bottom mounted power supply.
