  1. Hi,

    I have an EZCool super-silent 450w power supply. My problem is that it is blowing air in instead of out.

    How can I reverse the fan rotation?

    Thank you,
    Ittay

    No sorry, Made that way. What you can do is ad a fan at the bottom below the power supply and it will make air flow in and then out buy the new fan.

    Asumeing it is a standard fan with mounting holes on both sides you can simply open up the power supply and flip the fan around.

    Warning!! this will void your PSU warrenty and is potentially dangerous if you don't know what your doing. I reccomend you unplug the PSU from AC and hit the power button on the computer to drain the capacitors before opening the unit and still be carefull when inside.

    I'm not firmiliar with that brand of psu so I don't know how good the quality of the unit is.
