HX520 IN P180 CASE - Air circulation?


Lite Beer

Recommended Posts

I am planning on getting the 520w with an Antec p180b. Do I mount the power supply with the fan intake towards the bottom or pointing towards the top? Is there enough room between side of compartment for adequate airflow to the PSU?

Note that Antec recommends for PSUs with a bottom fan that "The bottom-mounted fan should be pointed towards the top of the enclosure." regarding the P180.

On the Antec cases that have the PSU sitting flush against the bottom of the case (Antec 900 comes to mind) I would agree. However the P180 should have plenty of room for air to get through the PSU, even with the fan facing down.

In fact I agree with you as of now: in the mean time I purchased the HX620 and mounted it as you said :-) as it was the only way I could fit the +12v wire to the mobo while routing it on the back of the latter.

 

No problems and the thing runs cool I believe.
