So let's see.. I want to drill some holes in the case and flip my PSU upside down. Here's a picture:
I wanted to stress how little room I had for airflow in all directions (it's pretty cramped), but it doesn't get hot, so I'm not really concerned too awful much about that.
The only hole I'm really concerned with is the one down there to the right of the CPU, which won't be any problem.
Are the other two holes necessary? Is a procedure like this recommended for the minimal amount of room have? It rarely gets hot. I mean when it's running, I can stick my hand in the case and feel a large amount of airflow from the two front fans going to the back fan and the top fan.
And about flipping the PSU upside down: Should I have to worry too much about airflow? I drew the two red boxes on the top and bottom to show how much room I had for airflow. I have the top fan set to the minimal speed. The other three fans do not have a setting for speed. the processor fan spins at about 850 average when idling.
I have all the necessary tools for a job like this, so nothing to worry about there.
Thanks for any input into this
