Hey guys,

I'm relatively new to the art of building computers
I have a hp pavilion p6731a

Recently I decided to replace the gpu with a gtx 750 low profile asus which required at least a 500 W power supply. So stupidly I bought a top fan thermaltake power supply and placed it at the old power supply's slot. This made it so my power supply lasted 4 months and died. So the computer store gave me another one but

I'm confused as to how it should be placed. My only ideas are to drill a hole at the roof of my case or to get a new case that allows bottom mounted power supplies.

Any suggestions?

Usually power supplies can be mounted either way because they have screw holes for either. Which exact model number power supply did you get? The 750 doesn't need 500 watts, 430 watts would be fine.

This, just flop the unit around so the fan points into the case.
