HRAW Posted September 28, 2008 Share Posted September 28, 2008 I just order a HX1000 PSU and they will be delivering to me this Sunday 09/28, but I would like to clarify some doubts that I Have at this time regarding this Model PSU: 1º) is the HX 1000 fully compatible with the ASUS P5K Premium black pearl edition. 2º) The Cooler Master CM 690 Case is made so the PSU go in the bottom part of the cabinet with the PSU fan seating down towards some pre-drilled fan intake holes, after the PSU is in place, there is a space between the PSU Fan and the bottom of the case of about 4 to 5 mm (0, 4 to 0,5 cm), I know that due to the length of the PSU I will Have to eliminate the bottom 12” fan that I have, but the PSU 14” fan will not match exactly with the bottom pre-drilled holes, I would like to know if that can be a issue compromising the airflow to the PSU intake vent or if the 0,4 cm will be enough for the air to circulate and cool the PSU. Also I would like to ask if it will be better to mount the PSU upside-down with the fan facing towards the inside of the CM 690, I have enough 12” fans with 90 cfm and a Thermalright 120 extreme with two 12” 90 cfm fans on a push/pull set up, on the side panel, I will have a 12” Fan that will be blowing cool air directly towards the PSU and the Video Card (8800 GTX OC) so I do not think that hot air blowing inside of the PSU would be a issue, I just want a recommendation from the people from Corsair and I want to make sure that will not be a problem to mount the HX 1000 wit the Fan facing up. 3º) Can I use a PSU extension cable with the original PSU power cord? I have being using one with my cooler master M620 with no problems, but due to the power of the HX 1000, a would like to confirm if it is ok. 4º) I would like to confirm in which rail the fixed PCI-e cable is connected to, if it is 12V1 or 12V2, looking at the configuration on the back of the PSU, I would assume that it is connected to the 12V2 Rail. I would like to apologize for my English and for the extent of this post.:(: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
