It's been brought to my attention that it is a tedious process to figure out if your PSU, will fit in this case.
So, here is a quickie field guide on ATX psu specification.
Originally Posted by WikiPedia Article on ATX/EPS Power Supply Standards
ATX power supplies generally have the dimensions of 6 × 3.4 × 5.5 (inches) and in metric 150 mm × 86 mm × 140/180/200 mm and share a common mounting layout of four screws arranged on the back side of the unit.
So, the back of the unit (where the IEC connector attaches too) should be 6 inches by 3.4 inches, within a tolerance (a tolerance is a deviation off of a standardized dimension that will still allow universal function, but not conform exactly to spec)
The third dimension is the problem with the case, as the PSU cage is only 160mm deep, or 6.23 inches for you imperial folks.
The way dimensions are displayed changes depending on the author of whatever content you are looking at, so, lets take YumYums's PSU that was asked about, the OCZ ZX 850.
(note that it is linked if you wish to follow along.
First dimension we can note under details is: 3.39 inches, which is rather close to 3.4, so within tolerance. The next is 5.91 which, again, really close to 6 inches, so the last measurement must be the depth, which is 6.89 inches, which is over 6.23 inches by a small margin. Yums could probably fit this PSU in his case, but remember, the depth does not account for the space needed for fitting wires into the case as well. I personally account 15mm for wires in my cases, but your mileage may vary.
I hope this helps people, and also, if you are unsure, feel free to ask. It is better to ask any annoying question, than spend more money than you need to. Bitfenix Prodigy Web Page
