POWER SUP­PLY IN­STAL­LA­TION

Maximum PC - - BASICS BUILD GUIDE -

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.
