A question?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
In a case like the HAF922, where the PSU is at the bottom, does the PSU needs to be installed like this?

I mean does the Fan must face the bottom of the case? Cause I don`t know if the fan faces the bottom, where does it blow air? To the floor?

The fan blows air into the PSU and this air is passively exhausted out of the rear mesh. The fan doesn't exhaust air itself. So the PSU should face down - this way the PSU fan will intake fresh air.

If the psu is facing down and there is a vent hole there that is how they are usually mounted as the bottom fan will draw cool air from underneath the case and the back fan on the psu will exaust the hot air to the outside of the case.

There is, but the ventialtion hole is at the bottom how I see, so how will it get fresh air from the floor?

The feet allow it to have some height. It won't get a ton of ventilation but this is the best way to mount the PSU. If your case is on a carpeted floor then you shouldn't install it with the fan facing down.
