Default should i worry

this power supply i already bought has a fan on top. but my tower does not have a hole in the case for a fan. u think i will have problem fitting it in.

power supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817148008

case http://www.viperlair.com/images/revi...-cruiser_1.jpg

there is a fan on top of the case but it is not far back enough for the power supply.

Um, the fan actualy points down, they only show it that way, to uh show you. Lol.

Most power supplies have the bottom fan suck in air and the side fan blows it out.

Yeah, it has to be a bottom fan. If they made it otherwise, they'd be shooting themselves in the foot, because virtually no cases have a top blowhole in that position.

My son has one in his gamer..............it's a bottom fan. Great PSU for the money BTW. It has served him well for more than a year under very heavy gaming loads!
