Bottom mount PSU - In which orientation?

Postposted on Mon Aug 26, 2013 2:00 pm

A bottom mount PSU can be installed in two different orientations - air intake side up or down. I can think of pro and con for either way. I wonder how other people are doing.

I would think intake side down would cool the PSU better. Add a dust filter if you go that route.
