Guess i will flip the fan then.. eventhough i did flip the psu LMAO.

Think it'll be ok if i flip the psu and the fan itself too? It'll still blow air in? What you think?

I guess you could do that , aslong as the psu has air to breathe dude ... i dont think it matters if its upside down or not that woudnt affect its functionality .

So you're saying i don't need to flip the fan then or should i? I gotta know this before i attempt anything.

I might just flip the fan then leave the psu upside down cuz i like how the airflow regulate properly in my case now that my video card doesn't have airflow interruption from the psu.

I always liked psu that has fans on front and back as intake to exhaust. Those always are proper for my airflow in the case.

78@pwnt4lif3 I did THIS with my PSU.
I didnt follow it exactly and mounting holes might be a bit different but it works fine.
My primary reason for doing this was that it made cable management easier and also because ...er I could.

That's nice but i didn't do that. What i did was i flipped the fan and installed it. Then after finishing i flipped the unit upside down thus having my cables a bit closer now to the side of the tower.

So far i know one thing is the fan that i flipped would be pushing air against the components. Hopefully it'll last for a long time then again i may just order a better psu cuz i still like fans on the sides instead of top.

The fan is now intake on the bottom upside in the psu unit. I hope this isn't a stupid idea.

K i just did the mod , i can now hide some of the wires that used to have to sit at the front of the case . thankyou !!! that wire going across the mobo is the extra power connector .. its so friggn short!! this psu was designed for a small case thats for sure .




When i first got my antec case , i used these stupid cable managment tubes that looked rediculous..nm i could do with the wires right next to the glass..

Now its just black down the bottom , cant even see a wire =D awssome.. iv been trying to rectify these wire issues for ages n now its finally all hidden properly. also notice im using the noctua's as case fans now , i tried the tri cool fans on my rad and i got better results.

So I went ahead and redid my build using AS5 with the H50. The previous owner really did a bang-up job on the copper plate (scratches and burn/oxidation marks all over ), so I decided to do a bit of lapping using 300, 400, 500, 600, 800, and finally 2000 grit sandpaper. I probably did a crappy job, but the block is very smooth and shiny compared to the previous rough and unclean condition.

You can still see some sanding scratches, but it's pretty smooth and straight throughout the block:


I was able to get really LOW temps to my surprise! I had my 955 set to 3800mhz with 1.45V (NB @ stock 2000mhz, so that might add heat later on when I raise it up) and I was able to get 25C idle temps, 44C load temps with Prime95 Large FFTs and 45C load temps with LinX (max memory). My ambient is about 15C right now with my window open and the H50 keeps my whole system cool as an intake. This is definitely better than my SM2's load temps of 50C-52C!

Wow, I wish I had space to do that on my 902...

Xistro.. dude i noticed you have the atx pin in the case? Why not order a extension cable for it and you can run it behind? I do with mine.. Must be a pain to have that. Here's a link.

http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g2/c...Ext-Page1.html

Here's the extensions for your pin connectors. So you don't have to line it up on your motherboard.

Also another tip.. get some stickers that can hold tie wraps.

Radio shack has them. you can use it behind your case to hold down the cable flat against the wall so you can close the back side panel easily.

I liked how you did that mod! Now i kinda wanna do mine but i don't have the tools lol.
post #15340 of 28303
Yeah man im gunna fix that up tommoro , whether i buy the connecter or just extend the wires probably it doesnt bother me but it just looks untidy their over the pcie port . Everything other than that is perfect .

thanks u dont really need any tools , i used a screw driver , abit of double sided tape n thats it ? the tray comes with the case i still had it new in the box i never used it so it was good it all went to plan lol .
