Followup to power supply orientation. I sent an email to SilverStone about it and got this response:
You can mounted in both directions, if you mounted upward the fan will intake air and exhaust through the rear and will run cooler but if you mounted inward then you can take advantage of the fan in the power supply to help cool down the temperature in your case and other components
Personally I would prefer the second option.
So I guess
the reasoning is that the power supply will pull in air from inside the case, adding circulation inside the case, and push it out the back of the power supply and out the case. How logical does this sound to you guys?
I'm not sure if this is a good idea if I have a graphics card fan near it pulling air in the opposite direction. I can flip my graphics card fan, but I'm not sure if that's a good idea either.
Personally, i think its best to place the psu fan facing up, specially for my case, with a PSU like Seasonic X660 being passive under light load, the heat will rise up and go out through the TJ08E upper hole, and when needed it will start up and pull fresh air to cool itself, the other way around idk, bieng passive and heat of the case raises to psu might not be ideal, i like the psu being a semi independent system from the case, specially for a semi passive psu, like the ravens. By the SPCR review and other users, i see the 180mm case fan does a great job, at least on the gpu side, better than average, so i dont think i want to tamper with a PSU or that will need the PSU to help the case, that said, maybe a fully active psu would help clear warm air, although i seen this is not always the best route. The positive pressure will exit air through all the holes around the case, and with help of the optional 120mm, at least thats what i think.
