Good question. That PSU is longer than the usual 300w - 860w PSUs, it's probably as long as the 1000w+ units from most manufacturers.
Having said that, the Zalman case actually looks like it could handle that PSU even with the fan facing down, even though it doesn't say anything officially about it, but you can see from the pictures that it has vents for a fan at the bottom, so you can probably even use the PSU with the fan facing down, just make sure the airflow isn't obstructed. If not, mount it with the fan facing upwards. Other than that, it should fit.
ATX power supplies' dimensions are usually the same except for depth which is longer in some cases to accommodate modular connectors and / or high power designs, which is the case, so it should fit given your case. Like I said, the worst that can happen is having to mount the PSU with the fan facing up.
It's based on AcBel design, it looks decent for what it offers, especially for that price, but if you're not going to be using all that power, maybe you should go for something with a lower wattage.Edited by tpi2007 - 3/3/14 at 9:53am
