    my new skyhawk case fits the PSU back to front!

    i have a skyhawk that only has screws pointing the atx psu inwards fan next to the ceiling. there isnt tons of room for airflow, only 1 cm perhaps.
    isnt it strange that a skyhawk case should point a dual fan antec with one fan near the top wall?

    the skyhawk is a ripoff of the globalwin gat001, which mounts the PSU upside down - which is an issue for L-type dual-fan PSUs.

    thanks man it was a bargain bin thing, just about managed to do the scews on one side and it is supported by kind of a shelf so it's actually ok now, tops even. :}
    even came without the lcd christmas deco at the front so there's room for something groovy there if ever i can possibly think of something. i must be old already cos i feel like a nipper having a pretty color box.
