Solved Should PSU fan face the motherboard? Tags: Power Supplies Cases Fan Motherboards Components Last response: June 13, 2012 12:52 PM in Components Share ratsa June 4, 2012 9:45:17 PM I have case where the PSU is mounted at the bottom. There is a vent below where the PSU is mounted. I looked in the manual for the Seasonic X-650, and it states that "Depending on the type of computer case ... the power supply fan should face the mainboard. This does not apply to all types of cases." Well, should the fan face the motherboard or not in bottom mounted PSU?

What it's talking about is for top mounting. Share ratsa June 4, 2012 9:52:12 PM The case is a Lian Li PC-9F. The bottom vent has dust screen too. Can all PSUs be flipped over (i.e. the mounting screws allow for this)? m 0 l Related resources Should a top mounted PSU fan face down? - Forum Which way should my PSU fan face? - Forum Which way should MY PSU be facing, in accordance to fan instakes/exhausts - Forum Should I put my PSU with the fan facing up or down in my case? - Forum How Should Corsair H60 Fan's Face? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
