  • What size class is my PSU

    So I have this PSU: https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Comp...roductId=57197 purchased from Aria.

    I am looking at a new case, as my current is a mess, but I'm confused on PSU sizes and what my PSU will fit in what case.

    it's just an ATX power supply? (normal/standard size).
    Mozt every case accepts an ATX power supply.

    Other than custom built small ones inside small form factor PC's you can get SFX as small size.

    Soma ATX ones are a bit longer with higher piowered units, but yours looks pretty much standard in every way.

        How does a new case solve the mess?

        Mine always look like a mess, partly because I'm always going in to fix and change things.

        I can't see a new case making me any tidier.

          As I had to take the drive bay out of my current one to fit even a 560ti, and now i'm on a 970 (even bigger). So I have a HDD screwed in where it probably shouldn't be, and an SSD just laying on the bottom of it...not to mention the annoying as **** dvd bay with one of those "flaps" that flops down.

            I thought that was the idea. Leave it dangling in mid air. Better cooling.

            When I get my next case – some time soon – I'll go for one of those with the SSD bolted on the side of the HDD cage.

            My cases don't even have USB3 ports on the front!

                I thought it was just me lol
                My local hospital has a sign which reads "This way for accidents and emergencies." Haven't people in hospital got enough to worry about without looking for further misfortune?

                    to answer the first question (probably again lol) ... It's an ATX unit (160 x 150 x 86)

                    Full Specs can be found here (BeQuiet are really good at releasing info)

                    It'll be good to see some pictures from that case with your build in it, to give an idea of the space etc in that layout

                          Yes. I'm tempted. Makes a change from those black boxes at each end of my desk.

                          I'd like to see a picture of it populated though. Does it have places for SSDs? Or do they just stack in the 2.5-inch slots?

                            I removed my drive cages for better airflow [emoji14] HDD is ghetto'ed into a 5.25" drive bay (too cheap to buy the adaptor) and ssd is taped behind the mobo tray cable managment is pretty good if I do say so myself

                              What tape have you been using? I haven't found any that's really that strong to hold something down like that.
