The simple solution, which you could still implement now, would be to remove the PSU chamber fan and not use it. The Tagan already has 2 80mm fans -- why do you need any more airflow down there? Remember that the PSU chamber fan is really an option -- use it as you need it. I did think of that, but...

If you own the Tagan 550W PSU, you are in for some fun getting the thing into the case! If you click on the link, you can see how the PSU just barely fits. http://trippy-purple-cloud.dhs.org/images/inside01.jpg It has a push/pull fan arrangement, the extra size is to accomodate such. I removed the f...

:shock: It won't? what is your PSU? I can't think of anything longer than the Antec Phantom 500 (which I know fits). The fanless Thermaltake might be longer, but most of that length is outside the case. I have the 550W Tagan. It's 175-180mm long, which is just the case, add in another 10-20mm for t...

Will the Phantom 500 fit? The Phantom 500 is fairly long. It appears based on measurements using the first picture at http://www.silentpcreview.com/article249-page4.html that the space between the PSU and mid-case fan is between .7 and 1.1". I have the Tagan 550, it's almost as long as the Phantom ...
