New PSU

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
i got my psu today its a PC Power & Cooling 750 Silencer.
threw it in my case and then noticed that the screw holes dont align.
the hole in the back of my case is to big so the screw holes in the PSU have nothing to grab on too =(

so idk how to make it stay put, and suggestions?

Even if you flip the PSU Upside down the holes still wont work?


Turn it up side down....i bet it will work

Uggghh.... That is weird.


Anyways, Is there anything that you could temporaly Zip tie the PSU to the case? It's definantly not ideal but it could work if there is something you could tie it to.


Or some way to make like a shelf


EDIT: Doesn't really look like a whole lot for it to hold on too (The zip tie and shelf Idea


Do any holes Align at all>?


Worst case scenario....

Return PSU and try a different one

Or get a new case


Unless you can fabricate some way of securing it

You could always just put the PSU on top of the case and leave the side panel off.....That way you could still use the New PSU.....It won't hurt any thing as long as you don't tip it over.


And if you have some form of a pet that could crawl in there or chew on the wires you might want to not let it near your Comp.


Other than that I am out of Ideas

i was so excited about my new PSU too xD

well thanks to the little rail and slot the case has the PSU manages to stay put when the case is upright =]

Are you sure that you bought an ATX form factor PSU?

Yes, this was a joke.

That looks upside down to me.
