I have a Corsair 650w PSU powering an
Phenom II X4 955
and 1 sata drive
During normal use the PSU feels very warm, and during gaming it's hot to the touch. It also heats up the top of my case quite a bit.
It seems like the PSU fan isn't running that fast though. There's barely any air coming out of it
The PSU intake fan is right above the CPU cooler, maybe that's why?
All my other (low end) computers, the (cheapie no-brand) power supply is cold even being on for 24+ hours.
Heat kills components, correct?
So i'm about to mod my case so the psu intakes from outside the computer
