    Hi all,

    Basically I am using a PicoPSU with a Dell AC adaptor in the HTPC, so it leaves a big hole where a PSU would usually go. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but the case hasn't got much air flow right now - it is designed to rely on the air flow of the PSU.

    So I am wondering, is there any bracket/mount/adaptor that would allow me to fit a fan there to aid air flow?

    Except chopping up a perfectly good PSU obviously!

    Thanks.

    Maybe lian-li has a cover for their dual psu case ... Lemme check.

    Edit : sowwy, did not have any luck. All I was able to find is psu mountig bracket. I think that the best would be to build one yourself

    Yeah just need to print out a template of what you would like and stick it to some material to cut out.

    Personally I would bag an old busted PSU from somewhere (maybe ebay) and gut it so there is nothing in there apart from the fan, preferably at least a 120mm fan and a psu that isn't made of mesh.

    The fan inside is usually connected with the normal 3/4 pin connector so you may need to run a fan lead extension.
