Can the people in the know and/or those who've actually modded their PSU please post a sticky re safe way to discharge a PSU so that it can be safely opened for modding? And please, no "you have to unplug it for a week" or "poke it with a screwdriver" answers. And preferrably a detailed step-by-step guide, not some vague references to things only an EE would know or own.

I know this has been addressed before, but never in a definitive way, as far as I can tell.

Thanks!

By the way, all I want to do is switch my Enermax's 80mm exhaust to a Panaflo. Probably powered from the outside conectors, so I can rheostat it down.

http://forums.silentpcreview.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2135 this thread has some info about the discharge of the PSU, I did that fan swap mod on my PSU as well, one thing I found that made my life easier when I was trying the fans out is to put a 3 pin male connector on the end of the PSU fan wires and then I could swap and choose what fan I wanted instead of constantly soldering it.... also make sure when u solder the wires they're not over the PSU PCB i did that and there's like this flake of solder over my PCB oops :oops: still works though but good thing to keep in mind :) leave it to the experts in this like TerryW to talk to u more about this :)
