POWER SUPPLY INSTALLATION
WHEN IT COMES TO INSTALLING the power supply, you have two choices: fan down, or fan up. In a liquid-cooled build or one with an AIO, we recommend you install it with the fan facing down. If any water leaks from the cooling block, there’s minimal chance that gravity will drag it into the fan and fry the system. With the fan up, it draws warm air down and out of the chassis. It also affects how much play you have in the cables when you’re installing them. Once the PSU is in place, simply use thumbscrews to secure three or four of the threads through the back of the chassis, then run the cables out through the back of the case, next to the motherboard.
