I ordered my new components and am patiently waiting for them to arrive. What i am planning, I ordered a new power supply that has one 120mm fan on the top/bottom of the PSU. I assume it is designed to draw air in the back of the PSU and exhaust it into the case. I have not seen the PSU yet but I think I want to cut a hole in the top of my case and mount the PSU upside down so the fan exhausts out the top of my case. Has anyone else tried this or have any thoughts on the idea?

I am also planning on putting another blow hole out the middle of the top of the case and mounting one of the 120mm turbine style fans there. Both the PSU and the urbine fan have blue LED's should look good with the blue window fan and blue cold cathode.

The fan on the bottom serves to draw in air from the case and exhaust it out the back. It cools the heatsinks inside the PSU.

I wouldn't cut a hole in the top of the unit, as this would allow more dust into your system. Have you ever seen a PC with a hole in the top? Just get your fans to work together, in the same direction for air flow. If you have too many openings, you lose your air current.
