    Hi guys i recently get this Dell Alienware Aurora R3 case

    I will get one of most recent PSU, will be Corsair or XFX with that nice Hybrid fan function.

    Do you think i have enough clearance space for the fan to cool ? With the PSU fan facing down...

    Important notice : " I dont want to cut the case or makes some holes with ghetto mod filters "

    plenty! If you think it is lacking, you could always drill a few holes between the raised bits of steel that support the PSU.
    Animalpak says thanks.

    Thanks this is really good to know ! No worries for me now ! :toast:


    This new feature of the hybrid fan i think it will only start while playing and that space is sufficient.
