Just keep producing high quality power supplies and I'll keep buying them.

This is a question here for the Sea Sonic Rep here on OCN;

Just received my spanking Brand New SS-750XP2S Snow Silent 750W power supply and I have this real BASIC question here for you.

Please don't laugh, this power supply has all the markings indicating that it should be placed at the bottom of my The Fractal Design Define R5 case.

The power supply if installed shows that it has to have the internal white fan facing up, is that correct?

Normally with every power supply I've bought and installed into my cases the fan(s) were always positioned downwards as an intake at the bottom of the case but this time I would like some confirmation from an actual Seasonic Rep, whether it's incorrect to install this power supply with the fan facing upwards, inside my case?

It does not matter which way it faces as long as it gets some air.

Thank you Shilka, so which position would you use if this was your Power Supply inside your R5 Case?

Just need to know if having the fan facing downwards would get fresher air from outside to cool it's internals, rather than recycling inside warm case air to cool the power supply?

Sea Sonic Rep recently dealt with a similar question to this in another thread.

post #1727 of 1832
I have my x-650 pulling cool air from the bottom of the case. Otherwise it would be pulling hot air from inside where the graphics card lives.

Fan is set to run always (vs silent hybrid) but I can't hear the fan because it is so quiet.

Hi, I know this have probably been asked before but I need to know if the X-760 cables are compatible with the newer X-750. My PSU is about to fail and I'm not certainly eager to do all the cabling again. Many thanks.

They are not so sory but you are going to have to take the machine apart.

The X760 has a KM2 cable set while the 750 has a KM3 set, which has different cables for PCI-E and CPU. Here's the pinout for the X850KM3, which has the same cables as the X750:

 

(There's also a 4/4 split CPU cable in the set with the same pinout as the 8pin cable.)

 

Here's an older, upside-down, pinout for KM2 PCI-E and CPU cables:
