    Hi All,
    I bought a beat up quicksilver case on ebay. It'd like to stuff it full of up to date hardware as many of you have already done. The quicksilver cases seem to have issues with cooling the cpu. Mine hasn't arrived yet, so I cannot try things out and see for myself.

    Here is my idea: Originally the psu sits in a way that its air intake is right up the side wall of the case. Not ideal. What if one would flip the psu around. then, the notoriously hot cpu compartment is vented out the back via the psu.

    Any thoughts,
    Christian
