    Probably, but if you're not using that much power it may stay low.

    There is a big fan in the middle of the power supply and I was wondering if i should put it upwards or downwards inside the case. Also, thanks for the prompt response always sammorrris.

    Which fan on the P182? Here's how I recommend setting up fans:

    CPU: Suck into processor, preferably exhausting towards rear of case
    PSU: Suck into PSU from case, exhausting through PSU and out
    Case:
    Front: Into case
    Side: Into case
    Rear: Out of case
    Top: Out of case
    Bottom: Into case
