Antec P180b case - new PSU

  1. Hi all,

    I have an Antec P180b case and am looking for a power supply for the latest graphics cards (GeForce 9800 GX2) so I'll need to have at least 1x 8-pin connector and 1x 6-pin connector.

    Finding one's not the problem. Finding one that will fit my case, is.
    Anyone know of any PSUs to fit my case?

    I really don't want to have to buy a new case and PSU AND Graphics card!

    Any ideas?
    Cheers.

    What are the maximum dimensions your case can support for a PSU?

    Well, I've been trying to figure that out. Can't seem to find that information anywhere!
    Case specs form the website: http://www.antec.com/specs/P180_spe.html but no mention of max PSU size, neither is it mentioned in the manual. :(

    If it supports an ATX motherboard it ought to support standard ATX PSU's. What PSU are you currently using?

    I don't understand why you can't just grab a measuring tape of sorts, remove your current PSU and take a look at what you're working with. There aren't any tricks, I mean it's a square dimension and the new PSU will either fit or it won't...

    Dimenions of my CoolerMaster extreme power 650w are: (w)15 cm x (d)14 cm x (h)8.6 cm
    Do you know of any 6 and 8-pin PSUs matching this measurement?

    Couldn't measure my PSU/case as I'm at work at the mo'!
