PSU cables won't fit in the case? & fan questions

I just purchased a Corsair CX750M to upgrade from my older, stock PSU for my HP Pavillion HPE 1121 PC, and I opened my case only to notice there will not be space for all the wiring, & my previous PSU was a 460W stock fanless one, so I'm not sure how this will work out with a fan. It's a top mounted PSU & I checked all the dimensions beforehand, no problems at all with that. Should I return the PSU? I looked for fanless PSU's and it seems no one makes them anymore .. my case isn't too small also but it's not huge either. Right below my PSU is my graphics card and other components are near too, so how does the fan come into play here? Will the fan interfere? Could someone explain how I should do this? Thanks a lot, much appreciated!

Please take a look at these images of the inside of my PC, & post any thoughts on the casing, wiring etc.

WIll the wattage be enough for most new modern graphics cards? & the cables aren't very thick like the corsair ones right, since my case is very cluttered inside and smaller in size?

Yes it will , it's one of the BEST OEM upgrades you can find.

It will power a single GTX 770.

How about a GTX 780? Okay so the cables won't be a problem, and about the fan on the psu, mine is top mounted, so should the intake fan go on the bottom? Oh, and do they sell the PSU you linked me in stores? Since I bought my Corsair at Canada Computers and I would like to just exchange it for a better one. The closest one I found was this, http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=3...

I prefer buying it at a store, like Canada Computers, and I would like any one like the one you linked if there are any similar ones, I`ll go for that.

The one I linked is one of the best OEM's money can buy, and Seasonic is second to none in the power supply industry.

Are you all set ?


yup, thanks a lot! But if you look at the photos my setup is very cluttered, and the fan on my current PSU blows hot air out toward the back I'm pretty sure, and all newer PSU's have a single intake fan, so I should point that fan into the bottom of the case cause it's top mounted right? Also, I have a couple wires that are 1/2 an inch to an inch right under the PSU, will that be a problem or no?

Shouldn't be an issue since they are identical in size and made for such situations!
