    is there a way i can make the intake fan on the bottom of my PSU spin any faster? its up full blast,, but still it doesnt seem to be sucking much air...
    for now,, i resorted to sticking an 80mm fan to the front of the PSU just so the warm air up the top of the case would get out of the bloody case.

    hmmmm.... might cut myself a blowhole....

    realistically PSU';s aren;t designed to move much air...just enuf to cool themsleves properly...the easiest option would be just to cut a blowhole:D

    Leave the PSU alone and go with the blowhole as this is better anyway plus ya only need a good holesaw for the job. :smokin:
