    Default Power Supply fan

    The fan in my power supply has just died :/ Does the power supply unit itself need a fan? Or is the fan there to suck air out of the box for other components?

    Good question! Most power supplys that small, don't have fans, I'll stick my neck out and say it doesn't need it. They are only cheap little critters anyway, the fans that is. Easy enough to replace. Mind you the whole power supply with a fan is only about $30.00

    I did presume you had another fan to keep everything else cool

    Its a 250w one. And I do have other fans in my case.
    So does the psu produce much heat itself? Ie does it actually need cooling?

    well as was last sed, u need one, why else would they put in a fan?, to make it faster?
    ha, u guys want to not use a fan but do it at your own risk, would u run a AMD TB 1.4GHZ without one?
    didnt think so
    and if u dont use one i hope it shorts and u get a shock or it melts your MOBO/all other parts so u can see how much of an idiot you are
