I'm planning a build and looking for a fully modular PSU with a top-mounted fan, like a fan where the power plug is.

The closest I found was the Antec TPQ, but it still has that stupid extra 4-pin/8-pin leftover.

Preferably under $100 and the shorter the better, but anything that exists and meets these reqs is fine.

Thanks!

Whats wrong with top fan?

I guess it would be called a side fan?

True Power quatros are the only high power units i know of with that fan setup, most opt for a larger fan on the top.

Any specific reason why you need a fan on the backside?

I don't need a high power unit, just Modular and moderately powerful.

I'm planning for a build and if the PSU has a side intake fan, it really disrupts the airflow and ill have to mess around with the placements of stuff. :pt1cable:

I though about that, but spacing is an big issue, and i need the fan to draw air out of the case.

Guess Ill have to get an Antec Neopower and cut the wires, or open up the PSU and change the fan to exaust... (So much for warranty..)

Thanks alot though. Appreciate it.

Most PSU fans are exhausts in that they suck the air out of the case and through the PSU, so im confused why you are going to need to modify a neopower.
