Seasonic x-series 850w (intake bottom?)
Jan 3, 2013, 7:01 AM
I'm getting a seasonix x-sries 850w, does intake of this PSU is at bottom and then exhaust it at the back?
and btw, it's ok with a GPU that has an 8 and 6 pins and ok with SLI? like I have 2 GPU's that has 8 and 6 pins. i have heared also that this PSU under 20% loading the fan won't spin, is this ok?

you'll be fine. normal for a psu is sucking in from the case and out of the back. the 0 fan speed at less that 20% will be good when not gaming, and is also fine.

The reason the fans won't spin is so that you won't have too much noise. It's targeted for silence freak. It's a feature no need to worry.
