Cosmos S And Rear Venting Power Supply


Recommended Posts

I may have made another mistake on my purchase list for the build I'm doing. I got the PC Power & Cooling silencer 750. The Cosmos S has the power supply mounted on the bottom of the case with a filter covered hole on the bottom to match up with the power supply fan to pull air from below the case. The P&C supply has a fan on the rear instead of the top or bottom, and venting on the "top" of the unit.


I'm wondering if there are any opinions out there on which option I should go with:


Mount the P&C Silencer so that the vent points down and lines up with the Cosmos fan vent on the bottom.

Mount the P&C Silencer so that the vent points up and vents into the case.

Return the supply to get one that has a fan that would match with the Cosmos vent.


Here is the complete part list:
