A BIG Thank You to this entire board!!! - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
Tom, I really like that first one just how does the heat get out if it sucks the air in from the bottom and can't blow it out...And if that didn;t make any sense hehe, It only has the one fan...

But you have sparked my interest for sure...

The air flow through the unit performs a right hand turn so to speak then exits out of the mesh back of the psu

Mine does the same, (Modstream 520w) it does not really impede the air flow at all.

Having one fan is fine. most single fan units which have the fan located on the bottom use 120mm fans. the psu's which have the fan at the back tend to have 2 80mm fans working on a push-pull effect.

TBH it does not make a great deal of difference imo.

EDIT: Btw the pic on newegg has the unit upside down (which im sure you know)

A single fan power supply with a 120mm fan on the bottom is ideal IMO, like the OCZ Modstream or my Seasonic S12. If you want a reliable power supply I would go with the Seasonic S12-500 or -600 if you need a bit more power, they are I think $120 and $150 respectively.

EDIT/// newegg seems to have raised the prices a bit, anyhoo theres the entire S12 line from 330W up to 600W, for your system any of those will do fine, I'd go for atleast 400W for future upgrade proofing
