Would this PSU fit in my HP Case?

I really want to know, because I called HP Tech support and they refused to answer.


If you wish not to click the link here are the dimensions in inches: Height 15.3", Width 7".
My case:

PSU I plan to purchase:

Any help greatly appreciated!

More about would case
  1. this is dimensions of the PSU you linked
    3.4" x 5.9" x 5.5"

    so size wise it should fit
    now you have to see how your current PSU is mounted
    is it in the back mounted with 4 screws?
    Open the case is the PSU mounted with any kind of special clips?

    I would think it would fit
    it the current PSU is just screwed in the back with 4 mounted screw holes

    It is hard to say without looking at the case in person
    but most factory towers nowadays are using standard ATX PSUs
    mainly because it is more expensive for the factory to get a non-ATX mount
  2. More help is gladly appreciated!
  3. It will fit, I have upgraded many recently made HP pc with a new PSU and its the standard ATX fitting.

    But my case is some kind of special edition, it's a tad bit thinner than the others! D:
  5. Try it and see! if it fits you are home free, if not, at least you have more information about what doesn't fit, and you return the PSU for a different one.

    I have the same case (I ordered a new case though) and a Corsair CX500 watt power supply and it fits just fine. Note that if you are using a longer video card, the case being so small can cause it to idle and pretty high temperatures. That's why I bought a new case ahah.

    That sounds like Best Answer to me :)

    How has the new case switch gone? I plan to do the same since everything in this case is just awful?
