Smallest case for an ATX PSU?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Will this standard sized ATX Power Supply fit in this MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case? If not what is the smallest case that that specific PSU can fit in? I'm building a home server and I already have that PSU from an older build and I would like to utilize it for this one and avoid wasting money on a new one. Thanks!

That's pretty small, I think it will fit.

Yep, I'm pretty sure it'll fit.... other folks in the Newegg reviews for that case were using ATX PSU's....

Yes it will fit, but it is not the smallest case that PSU will fit. The smallest case that PSU will fit is probably the Lian Li PC-Q07. However, your mATX motherboard won't fit it.
