    Thermaltake Tsunami + Tagan 480W?

    Hi,

    I'm going to build a new PC in 2-3 weeks time and am finalising the spec. I intend to buy the TT Tsunami but have read a number of reviews that say the space for PSU is a little tight. Has anyone installed a tagan 480W in one of these? Were there any problems?

    Also a few reviews have said that it is quite noisy. I'm using a Coolermaster 201C at the moment with 4 YS-Tech silent fans (1850 RPM 80mm), an Enermax 350W manual fan control, the same YS-Tech fan on my CPU and a 9500 Pro. The noise is noticable and I certainly don't want it to be any louder. I thought that getting 120mm fans would be quieter but it doesn't look like that's true in this instance.

    Thanks in advance!

    i've got a tsunami but no tagan

    that said the psu space IS tight but only if try to put it in after the motherboard

    So if you install the PSU then the Mobo you will be fine

    its a badass case, enjoy it

    i have the lanfire 3 xaser vm1000a case, which is really not a mile away from the tsunamei, i thought psu space was nice, i was able to fit my zalman in there no problems, but Spud1's right put the psu in before the mobo, its still capavble of being put in the other way but i didnt wana risk knowkin wee bits off my mobo lol

    Thanks guys.

    Any comments on the case in general?

    I'm also giving serious consideration to:

    Antex P160
    Coolermaster 220
    Silverstone TJ02 or TJ05
