Specs: N/A
Hello everybody! I just bought a micro-itx MB with an Intel Atom 330. The only PSU I have is a new 550W with a big noisy fan...
Since Atom processors use very little wattage, do you think it's safe to remove the fan from the power supply?? It sould not get much warm since the low power consumption...
I will have a maximum of 4 HD connected to the PSU as well, and it will be used as NAS and HTPC.

Please also note that the same board also comes out with a 90W fanless (like laptops) power suplly...

Thanks for any suggestion!!

Do NOT remove the cooling fan from the PSU. If it's too noisy, replace the PSU.

Don't even try to open a PSU unless you know what you are doing. It will only result in tears before bedtime. (And if you did know what you were doing you wouldn't need to ask this question in the first place.)
