Enclosures and acoustic damping to help quiet them.

Lian-Li V1000/V2000 question: is rear PSU flap removable?

Is the rear flap/cutout on the backside of the PSU compartment removable? And if so, will it prevent the case fans above it from mounting, or increase sound levels?

The reason I am asking is because I am thinking about buying a fanless PSU which has a square HS that sticks out from the back of the PSU compartment - don't think it will fit through the circular PSU hole.

Also, could someone tell what is the length of the PSU compartment (I understand that Anandtech had problems fitting a slightly overlength PSU)

Thanks

The review of the V2000:

says the lower panel of the case is removable so you're in luck. If you're thinking of getting a Silentmaxx Fanless PSU I'd have a search around the forums cause some people have foudthem pretty unreliable.

In the PC-V2000 the ENTIRE back panel there is removable. This area includes the PSU cutout and the 2 80MM cutouts. However if you are trying to mod for a different PSU this will make it easy to remove, cutout, and reattach.
