Cooling efficiency: PSU positions compared

Posted on Wednesday, March 09 2011 @ 05:00:19 CET by

Expreview has checked out how the position of the power supply impacts the cooling efficiency of your PC. To test this, the website used the Antec LanBoy Air and set up four configurations, with the power supply at the base or in the top, and in combination with a graphics card cooler that uses an intake or outtake cooling system.

The tester concludes placing the PSU at the bottom reduces the overall temperature of the case and significantly reduces the PSU temperature, but results in a slightly hotter CPU and GPU.
Compared with power supply settings,graphics cooling style has more influence towards case and CPU temperature.Currently most of the third-party coolers uses air intake design,GPU heat is involved in case directly.Along with the rising of heat,CPU cooling environment is deteriorated greatly.If the heat can’t give off in time,it will pose pressure on CPU cooling.And therefore,for those players who want to improve case cooling performance,how to make the graphics heat get out of the case in time is obviously more crucial.
