ATX PSU Templates - Halp! :p

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
anyone know where I can download and print a template for the rear of a standard atx psu (80mm exhaust fan type). I can get the fan center no problem but I need to cut away for the wire-in and the switch, and screw holes, and have no extra acrylic if I mess up.

anyone?

If nothing else, I've used paper to make a mockup first.

Lay the paper on the PSU, punch the screw holes with a pencil, and rough sketch the openings you need. Cut it out on paper and test fit. Refine with new paper until you get it right.

If you want to be extra safe, you can even transfer your paper template to some scrap sheet metal first, and test fit that.

Beware mirroring your image. That's bitten me more than once with PSU cut-outs.

If that suggestion isn't floating your boat,

PM me.

I'm with Warf, for my Sanguineus build I just traced the PSU hole off another case (use your cosmos if you have to). I used cardboard as it was thicker than paper. But like the bold above, make sure you transfer the template correctly, or you end up mounting the PSU outside the case
