  1. Just bought an Antec SmartPower 2.0 450w PSU.

    Basically it fits into the case alright but the cables what go into the hard drive, optical drives, mobo etc are on the same side as where you plug in the main power cable. So the cables will be on ther outside!?!?!?

    Is this a different kind of PSU maybe for cases that support the PSU at the front? Or? Well confused here...

    Never heard of this issue. Either you have a PSU designed for SATA and need adaptors for MOLEX connections, or you aren't doing something right.
