Question about power supply in case

How bad is it to leave a power supply facing down so that the fan is taking air from outside if the tower is on carpet?

  1. Not good, I wouldn't recommend it. It's better to have it face inside your case and intake air from there.
  2. my solution for this was to put a small piece of wood under each of the case's feet to get it about an inch and a half off the carpet. You want the bottom facing setup if you can, but definitely don't choke the air to something as vital as your PSU, heat kills electronics, and if you kill your PSU...you might kill the rest of the PC :(
