    Enermax Galaxy case compatability.

    I currently have a lian-li V1000B+. Now I have one of the hard drive racks removed to allow my Antec neopower 480 to fit in. The thing is that I can't find any info on whether the galaxy will fit?

    Well length isn't a problem - it's how wide the galaxy is.

    Without a simple mod, it will be too long. The best way to do it would be to get some motherboard standoffs (3m metric ones for the lian li case) and screw 3 together, and then screw those joined together ones into the back of the case (4 sets) where the psu would normall y screw in. All this does is pull the psu out of the back of the case a bit. It doesnt affect anything, and it actually looks quite good. I used this method on my v1000 when I had all my watercooling gear in it.

    p.s. if none of this makes sense, ill do you a pic.

    edit: the galaxy is a standard atx width and height, its just the length that is different.

    I have a V1000B+ dude, hence I have removed a drive cage

    /I think this will cure the length problem.

    BUT the galaxy definately fits in the V1000? (width and height wise)

    It will be a struggle, but you can do it like this, Ive sent this via PM, but ill post it here so anyone else can use it.

    p.s. the more standoffs you use, obviously, the more itll pull the psu out of the case and give you more space inside.

    Now why did I not think of that before? I have a PC-V2000 case, and it was a struggle to fit the Galaxy. It did work, in the end.

    Ahhh, my good friend, I thought of that before I installed it! In case you can't see clearly, I only have two free modular sockets free on it, as I plugged in the cables that I knew I needed, as well as a couple extra molex and SATA cables, and then I squeezed the PSU in.

    But yes, next time I can be arsed to do so, I shall probably do what you did, that will certainly make things a lot neater and safer.

    In that state do you not think it would fit?

    How long is that PSU? You need about 11.5 inches of clearance for the galaxy and the loom, that is with the wires bent as soon as they leave the galaxy casing.

    According to Antecs website it's 150mm long. According to Enermax's website the Galaxy is 220mm long. I've made a drawing and it should just fit ok...but we'll see.

    the 220mm doesnt include the large wiring loom sticking out of the back, and there is quite a lot of it and it isnt that easy to bend, thats why i said to allow about 11.5 inches
