Thread Starter 
I have antec 300 gaming case and antec true power psu, I have took a pic so you can see where I'm having trouble, the large black part at the front of the psu keeps hitting the back of the case so it won't fit, I don't get it, pics are here!

Well. From what it looks like here you went and took off the adapter plate off the 1200 and left it on the power supply. Just unscrew it from the power supply. I hope you have not sold your 1200 as the person buying it will want that plate as it is part of the case not part of the power supply.

Bit of a derp but i'll let you off it is 3 am.

Isn't the black plate detachable? I think it belongs to the Antec 1200 case itself, it's used so you can mount standard sized ATX PSU's. I had a friend who bought a 1200 and didn't get this plate with it and he got crazy about it. So there should be 4 screws on the back of the PSU so that you can remove the black plate.

Yup, I just saw that adapter on the antec 1200. Do as the man says and take it off and make sure to give it to the guy who bought your 1200. lol.thumb.gif
