Lets just say its not as easy as making a molex...from what it looks like. I've been wondering on this too though.


@cr1, Nice job for A900 cable management. You should take a dark pic of your setup.

I've owned a 9500 and a 9700NT, they are the same. The fins on both are aluminum, the heatpipes and base are copper, the only difference between the normal ones and the NT is that the NTs are nickle plated. Don't believe me? Call Zalman and ask them yourself or sand down the edge of one of the fins on both heatsinks.

the problem with psu's mounted on the bottom is that you will always see the cables, i like cases where the psu is ontop and there is a shelf up here so you can hide them easily. I need to widen my hole in the mobo tray so i can put all the cables through it.

Yup but PSU's on the bottom get fresh air all the time, and top-mounted ones get in-case hot air all the time. You can imagine the horror of the PSU if the person has the PC on 24/7 and playing games or doing some nasty encoding all day with an OC'd CPU... Big difference (long-term) when your PSU get 20oC intake vs 35oC intake....

in my old case the psu was on top and it didn't seem to effect temps much but when i had that case i wasn't worrying about temps at all. Also with my psu now on the bottom i don't feel much air exhausting from it at all, is there a way i can monitor my psu temps?

Buy a temp probe in a hardware store,preferably one with an LCD display... and shove it nicely into your PSU - aviod fans ... But honestly i don't think its necessary... its not going to die on you one way or the other.. its just a hypotetical discussion ..

Im sure some one here can tell us whats the top temp a PSU can work at without having a long-term negative effect...

Thats probably cuz its not hot, and the fan doesn't need to spin like crazy

Sata (power) cable modding isn't as difficult as some may think. Well, not talking about the end connector anyways. I'd like to link you to a how-to guide for modding/sleeving a (PSU) sata cable.

Pre-Post edit: Confirming authors permission before posting link to the guide.

Here's a P-pcs molex to Triple Sata 90° power plitter cable http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=24067

not necessarily. It's easy to use tape or a fabbed piece of metal to cover the cables coming directly out of the PSU, before said cables go through a hole in a mobo tray.

I have the solution for top-mounted PSU's. Cut a hole in the top of the case for the PSU to draw fresh air.

Everyone should realize it depends on the PSU. Some are rated/certified to work well around the 50-60°C range while others can't function(aren't certified to work) above 25°C. I'd say I'd want to keep all of my PSU's temps under 40°C if I could help it. Closer to 30-35°C would be good though.

here is mine, i think it is alright for no modding to the case. Soon I want to paint it black and do some cable management holes.
until then, this will do.
