Hello,
I was looking at getting an antec 300 case and a power supply, but all the power supplies i see have a fan on top and the PS mounts on the bottom of the case, wouldn't this blow hot air into the case?

Just looking for a case with no windows on it no lights and shiny things, hopefully (3) 5 1/4 drive bays 2 would be ideal sturdy case for an AMD build and a power supply. Anything would be helpful

Thanks!

turn the psu upside down? the psu fan alwys sucks from inside the case and blow to the outside. It'll be fine.

That seasonic unit is a great power supply. I used to have the 300 as my case and I had the fan pointing towards the bottom if you don't the power supply will rob your GPU of cool air coming from the front of the case.

so would this power supply work in the antec case? just looks like the fan is inside the case?

that one will be fine from an airflw point of view, they all will be, psu fans suck from inside the case and blow to the outside, doesnot matter if it is upside down or not.

The Antec Neo 620 mounts the right way but I also remeber that it only really mattered which way the fan was facing when I was running SLI for single config it doesn't matter. So if you have no plans for crossfire I would not worry about which way it faces.

Also alll Antec TP series will mount with the fan facing down.
