    mounting the case Upside down bad?

    I just got my voom-pc2 case and i am thinking about mounting it upside down, is that bad for the motherboard? I read a thread about it a while while back, but cant find it anymore.

    Honestly, I don't think it would be an issue.
    The biggest concern I'd think would be the CPU cooler coming loose. If it's securely mounted, then that wouldn't be an issue.

    With motherboards that require a gooldy amount of cooling and a larger HSF, I wouldn't suggest it. With anything that you'd put in a Voom case, I think it would be OK.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Providing everything is securely mounted and there is proper cooling/ventilation then you should be fine. Keep in mind that heat rises so if you have poor ventilation you could be in trouble.

    I agree, just make sure everything is secure and you shouldn't have any problems.
