    That lip will make it a tight fit. What do you guys think I should do to fix it?

    Sign me up!

    Can we talk about problems you have other than your PSU, too?:laugh:

    I still don't understand why it's an issue with standoffs. Most can be moved. I can see why you'd have troubles with a clunker like a 922, but the Lian Li should be better.

    The rised fan grill is not in the original measurements when the PSU was released. It will snag on the sides of the PSU cage.


    This clubhouse has awesome sauce written all over it.

    :laugh:


    THis case came up as well, you have NO IDEA how relevant that thing is to the discussion at hand!


    THe weird issue with Mialman's PSU(and i guess yours as well) is that the grill is part of the casing, and as such, cannot be removed at all. THere are quite a few cases that have this problem, A great remoinder here that part choice when designing/bulding a rig is absolutely critical.

    Heh. IF LianLi cases were still assembled 100% with screws, it wouldn't even be that hard. Boo to them for going with pop-rivets!

    Very true. Ill have to use a case that the PSU goes in the side like all mid-size cases. Sucks but I'm not dumping this PSU. To good of a deal on it.

    There is still hope. Like dave said! Maybe you can take out the panels that surround the PSU in that case?

    It'd probably be easier to make some minor mods to the case if ya really want to use the shell-case. That realyl is a damn good PSU. But hte hole the PSU goes into is really weird...strange they didn't choose to use a PSU bracket plate like many of their other "high-end" cases...

    Granted, but just clearancing where the grill will hit when trying to slide the psu in shouldn't be hard.

    Or he could drill out the rivets and replace them with screws. lol.

    Bah, I own one of those damn 352s, the original, not the B, and any power supply is a pain in the ass in one of those, especially where the cables come out. I don't think an non modular would even work in one. Mine is sitting out in my junk heap in the garage.

    You know, perhaps not that large of an issue, look here:

    Might be just enough room for it to squeeze in!!!
