    PS's with 92mm fans

    i was thinking about getting a PS that would come with a 80mm fan with it.. but then i thought.. i have a 92mm fan that's already quite.. but i would need a PS big enough/designed to take one..

    do you know of any?

    If you mean power supply then I dont think you can get one that would support 92mm fan at the back, ATX PSUs have exact measurements which, as I see it, wouldnt allow for 92mm hight

    however there are many with the place for 92mm fan at the bottom of the PSU like for example Enermax I own (that fan is pretty quiet anyway)

    oh ya.. i know i had installed a 92mm fan onto a PS (power supply) before. but i forgot that it was on the bottom.. but that was the only fan on the PS itself..

    Oh if you want quiet PSU you might wanna check Zalman, they have two very nice units:

    test of PSUs at TH rates Zalmans 400W unit pretty high

    BTW you can also mod your own unit
    the only problem I came across when doing that is the lack of space in a PSU thats not intended for 2 fans
    so the solution was puting the 92mm fan on the outside of the bottom side of the PSU
    however some mobos dont allow for that due to the lack of space between the PSU and CPU cooler

    Oh and I had one of those PSUs with only the fan at the bottom it was a 250W unit
    I am afraid though build-up of the heat in the unit would be a problem with todays computers

    Some of the proprietary brands had psu with a 92mm -- some older Compaq and IBM.
    You could also remove the 80mm, cover the hole with a wire grille and cut a hole in the other end for a 92mm. It would be further quieter because the fan would be further away inside the case. Airflow would be better, allowing lower rpm, because of the elimination of the restrictive grille (assuming you cut out the original fan opening when you put in a wire grille.)
