Fan Up or Down?

Recommended Posts

Hello.... I just purchased a Real Power Pro 550W and installed it in my new Antec P180B case. The PSU mounts on the bottom of the case. My question is should I mount the fan on the PSU up or down? Thanks in advance.

I would say mount it upward. That way it has more chance to suck in air.

I don't know about that, Karma. I looked up that case and it actually has less airspace above the PSU, than below. It's an air-chamber design.

I'd install the PSU right-side-up, with the fan on the bottom - the case is designed for that. Also, that would prevent dust from simply falling into the open fan-duct and accumulating in the PSU.

Be Well!
