Power supply upside down?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What would happen if i put my psu upside down? im asking cause i want to set the cables up alittle bit better. Putting it upside down will put the psu cables toward the inside of the case rather then the out side allowing me to hide some cables.

im thinking it wont make a difference since my psu fans are in the front and back, not top or bottom.

It doesn't matter as long as the intake fan is not blocked.

My power supply is kinda picky about which direction it goes in... If I put it upside-down or sideways, it has a high-pitched squeal when it has to provide more power. (basically when gaming)
