    Thermaltake Tsunami case - fitting PSU

    If anyones got a Thermaltake Tsunami case then i'd appreciate some feedback. I fitted a Tagan 480W PSU into the case - it was a very awkward installation as there's hardly any space to manipulate the PSU into position. The only fixing is via the 4 screws holding it to the back panel. There's a small metal plate to support the PSU on the side panel (motherboard side) but apart from that there's not really any other support for the PSU.

    Am I missing something here? The PSU side (opposite motherboard) has hardly any support and the rear end of that side is floating in free air!

    There's a small horizontal supporting bracket (which you've already identified).

    As long as the PSU doesn't move around or fall out - which it won't do - what are you worried about? Relax man......

    The Thermaltake Tsunamis are not very roomy in the PSU area and it's a tight fit no matter what PSU you have.

    All ATX power supplies attach via those four screws and if properly installed you should have no problems. Just don't overtighten (or leave loose) the screws.

    Phew! Thanks for confirming that things will be okay. It was a bit of a shock to see one corner hanging loose. It does droop a tiny bit but the 4 fixing screws are holding the PSU solidly in place. Other than that, I am very impressed with the case. But I haven't put a motherboard in it yet...
