Today my beloved power supply gave out on me-stunk too.
Poor thing was 2 yrs old, and the only original thing left in my tower.
Anyhow, two questions.
1) When I boot now, I can see CPU fan speed,but System fan is zero. Is power supply fan a 'system fan'. I am sure it used to say 5000RPM or something there. If so, where does it get the info? Needless to say the fan is spinning nicely.
2) My old one was one of the first 300W ATX supplies, and it was smaller than this one. In fact it did not have a fan on the bottom,just internal. Now, this new beast has the same vents but a beast of a fan on the bottom. The only way to fit it was to have this fan pointing right at my big CPU fan/sink. Does this matter I guess is the question, or should it be pointing to a vent which will mean I need a new tower.
