1500W M2 Silent Pro Proper Mounting

Recommended Posts

Okay, Silly Question time.


I'm now the proud owner of a Cooler Master Silent Pro 1500W M2. 

I'll be putting in a Cooler Master HAF X case, and in THOSE cases, the PSU is mounted on the bottom of the case.


My question is, do you mount M2 in the case with the PSU Fan facing up or the fan facing down, or does it REALLY matter?


Thanks in advance!

No SOP regarding for this issue :)


Fan facing down is my recommendation.
It's better to have the PSU's intake fan pull in cooler outside air than to pull in the pre-warmed case air. PSU's operate more efficiently with cooler air. Also the case's internal air flow doesn't get disrupted.
