Hello all!!

I am building a new somputer where I was going to mount my SSDs somewhere a little different than in a normal harddrice cage. originally I was going to mount them on the back of the motherbard tray but I just had a though about mounting them on the top of the PSU..

anyone know if that would couse any problems? :)

Usually a PSU would have vents on top of it. I'm not sure how much heat a SSD produces... My guess is not much. But covering any vents on the PSU is a very bad idea.

Also I'm hoping that you are not planning to open/drill holes in the PSU case?

I wouldn't do it. The heat from the PSU could end up causing problems.

And just out of curiosity, why the "creative" mounting?

the vent is facing down. I would say thats the most normal. and no im not making holes, was going to used adhesive velcro :) 

it was the heat I was most worried about! I just underneath my psu and it was just room temp, but the computer was idle so it might increase the more power the pc needs..

Ill just stick with the original idea.. :)
