View Full Version : Room to add second psu in PC-70
02-05-02, 08:47 PM
I just bought a Lian Li PC-70 and I am going to need to add a second PSU to power my way too many fans. So instead of hanging the thing outside the case I wondered how hard it would be to make a little mod and take out the top two 80mm and replace it with a psu. So I just want some feedback if anyone has done this, how hard it would be and what I should do?
Heres the pic of the back where I want to add the psu is at the very top where the two fans are. Looks like it could be a perfect fit. :D

I was looking at the PC-70 cuz those top holes would be perfect for a water-cooling radiator...
Anyway, what I would do is pop-rivet a sheet metal shelf inside at the correct height for the 2nd PSU. Then, just use a dremel or equivalent to cut out the necessary holes for the PSU output fan. Tape up the extra vents to help seal up your case and you are done!
I got the same case. If you check Lian Li's site you will find that they sell Dual PSU Back Plates.

Sonny I searched I didn't find the faceplate could you direct me to it?
Looks like they just updated their website. I can't find it either. Email them so you can get the BACKPLATE for 2 PSUs. Just remember that you will not be able to use the conventional dual fan PSU since they will be in tight configuration & blocking airflow to them. I'll try to scan the manual/catalog, don't own a scanner, that I have that shows the BACKPLATE & attach it later.
