Exterior power supply?

Recommended Posts

I have the CAV-T02 with the proprietary 300W PSU. This PSU is more than just underpowered. It has no ON/OFF switch, so unless you place an inline switch on the power cord, you'll get an arc at the outlet when plugging it in and unplugging it. I'm wondering if you modders have ever used an exterior power supply. Beyond the obvious problems of cable lengths, placement, and inconvenience when moving the case, is there any reason that it can't be done? Possibly it could affect the cooling of the CPU that the PSU provides with its fans? PSU's are looking so good these days that some of them should be visible. This is a desktop case, so the PSU could be placed on the unit itself.

it might effect case cooling but id say it would probabbly run cooler without hte psu there as it wont add to ambient.
