  • fan directly pointed on an opus?


    I have made my new case out of acrylic, basically a 7.25x7.25"x3.5" box where there are 2 80mm fans on the lid with the opus right next to it. So right now theres no fan pointed directly at the opus psu. Do I need to have a fan point right at it?

    The opus site says the psu will run at -25c to 75 c. 75c alone is about 167 F and I cant imagine a day getting even that HOT. BUT I plan to mount the case under the passanger seat.

    So fan pointed directly at opus or not? Keep in mind I have 2 2100 rpm fans pointed downward into the mobo and HD.

    Mine needs to be updated.

    I am runing Fanless, except for the stock proccessor fan on the M9000
    I am running everything under the back seat with the seat being used as the top of the case.
    I have not noticed any problems this summer.

      here are some pics. As you can see the fans shoot down and will probably bounce some air to the opus. Id just hate to toast a $190 piece of equipment

      Mine needs to be updated.
