    Antec p182 with Tagan U35 psu

    I have a p182 and a Tagan U35 easycon 700watt (modular) PSU. I have tried to place it in to the case but I have found that the fan in the bottom compartment makes it very difficult/impossible to fit it in. Can I remove this fan? and if I remove it can I place it in the HDD compartment in front of it if I have 1 HDD in that compartment? Finally would removing it have a substantial effect on the cooling in the case?

    Also I have heard that by blocking the top fan hole the internal temps can go down by 2-3 degrees, is this true?

    It's possible that the top fan distrupts the air flow to a downward facing fan on an HSF (big typhoon) and possibly the tower style ones ..Try unplugging that fan and sticking a book over the hole and find out.

    Pretty sure the fan gaurd is just clipped in so it should come out..the fan should come out easily enough then. Read the manual it may be in there.

    I think I'd rather give the the PSU the fresh air and just buy one more fan for the HDD or just not bother..

    EDIT: Just an after thought, in most circusmstances no cables need to route through the hole at the top of the PSU section, they can all be routed around the back of the mobo tray..this might help when installing it..

    Thanks for the reply, the PSU doesnt even fit when I route the cables round the back the modular bits stick out too far from the back of the PSU.
