Is my PSU upside down?

Hi all,

I have an Antec Three Hundred Two case. My PSU is an OCZ 600W. This case has the PSU at the bottom. The PSU has a fan on the bottom of it, and I have it so it's facing the bottom of the case currently. Is this the correct setup? I have never seen a PSU at the very bottom of the case before. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

    That's correct.

    You want the air to be drawn in from the bottom of the case through the PSU, then out the back of the PSU.

    Thank you so much. :D
  4. If your PSU fan is flat against the bottom of the case, with no open space between your PSU fan and the bottom of your case, then it will severely impede airflow into your PSU causing it not to cool as well as it should. If this is the case, I would turn the PSU over so that the PSU fan has open space to draw in the air it's designed to do. This is assuming your screws line up properly if you turn the PSU over too.
