Perhaps its exhausting as much as it can?? If you put another intake fan in it might exhaust more

that is what i thought at first too..

but when i look at the fans they are indeed blowing the correct way and are spinning..

without a very good manual i'm not able to determine much else than what i see through the small vents..

are the fans servicable on this PSU?

just wanted to add this:
I've had my X-Connect for about 3 or 4 months, and my rails have always been spot on, i've had no issues with power, and I would recommend it to anyone.
Except the 20pin mobo cord, is freaking stiff! but I guess when you think about it, there's alot of wires in there to bend in some crazy angle.
all in all, i'd buy another one.

crainger..

i had that suspicion too (even with 3 case fans for intake) but it doesn't exhaust even with the case lid open.


its really too bad cause the PSU intake is in close proximity to the CPU (which i believe is by design).. having a good intake/exhaust flow through the PSU can vastly increase your airflow.

on the other side my old PSU that i had in the same case (some generic one) would exhaust just fine ( albeit a bit load)..
