    Hi all.
    Just installed a Radeon 9550 today - with a few probs due to onboard video - but with a lot of help from this site, so thanks a lot :)
    One annoying niggle.... The fan and led's are facing downward! (lol)
    Ive racked my brains on how i can get it to face up, but im presuming im wasting my time, right? :confused:
    Seems like a waste of led's if ya ask me, lol.
    Cheers.

    maybe you can put a mirror on the bottom of the case, saw it on a few modded comps

    lol... i did actually think of that but also thought it seemed a silly length to go to. :)

    Is there a reason theyre on the bottom? Is there an alternative reality ATI sell them in where the cards fit with the fan and leds facing up?

    Cheers :)

    nah, there's no real way of doing it because the GPY is always on the bottom. I'm doing electronics for GCSE, so I know how it can be difficult aranging things on a PCB. The only real way of having a GPU on the bottom would be by completely re-aranging the way it fits together, which would cost a lot and the companies would loose a lot of money e.t.c.

    With my one (before I replaced the fan with a better one so I could OC more), then the bottom of the case is shiney metal, so all the light just reflected off it and gave the case a nice blue glow.
