2x PSU

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hey guys ,i've got a a hafX and need to have two psu.Do you think i could put the second psu in front of the first one, on the bottom facing each other.I would need to drill a hole at the back of the case so the cord could get out.So the back of the second psu would be facing the front bottom fan in the case.Is the front fan enough to cool the psu cause there wont be a hole for the back of the psu,i could turn the fan into pull instead of push.I would have to remove the hard drive cage at the front.What do you think?

Uhm. I didn't fully understand you. If you position the PSU so that it's fan is facing up then it will get enough air on its own. Why do you need two,m your 1500w isn't enough?

Not possible you need more than 1500w, but if you really want it, I guess that isn't to bad of an idea.

90% sure you do not need two PSUs.

if you do, get a decent case that supports two because we all know you can afford it if you have components that need two PSUs.

something like a nice Lian Li or Silverstone.

did you trim back the rear IO shield on the last card then? If so I would like to see pics, I had considered doing that in a build but was unsure of the results and decided against it.
