hi there im new to this site as a member, i have found these forums very usefull in the past and now im stuck and need help with a question, Is it possible to modify your case so that your PSU air intake fan is pointing toward the top of the case? i have looked at PC case mods on yo-utube and go-ogle and can not find anything on this topic.
if so and i do manage to rotate the PSU will it be sufficient, my current setup isnt as i have a CPU cooler and it is resting against the PSU intake fan. Please help any advice is helpfull

hi there, what my problem is, is that i have an arctic-cooling CPU heatsink and the position it is in is resting on the intake fan on the PSU, Sometimes when i boot my PC i can hear the PSU fan Stressing and im not to content with that and dont know what damage it could be doing, plus the only warm air that it could be taking out of the case is straight from the CPU cooler which is blocking the PSU fan anyway
Technically, you could certainly use something like a dremel to cut out a hole in the top of your case and then flip the PSU. You would then have your heatsink right against the top (now bottom) of your PSU and airflow would be impeded.
yes i understand that but, it would free the fan from the stress and potentialy take away the danger of my PSU being damaged, also i looked into the dremel technique and was thinking about putting a 120mm blue LED fan on the top of the case to counter-act the psu being flipped, would this work?, also i could move the motherboard but it will decrease the space between the GPU and the bottom of the case causing airflow to the GPU to decrease, im in abit of a no WIn situation
