It's an ATX case and so is the PSU, so I can only put it down to poor quality control by the case builder as 1/8 inch is too small a difference to be due to anything else such as the PSU being the wrong type.

All I can suggest is you slot the case holes with a small circular file or a Dremel-type power tool.

Return it to your vendor for one that is actually manufactured properly.

1/8" is a lot to be out by. That would be extremely poor manufacturing tolerances and would be considered a manufacturing defect.

The PSU's 120mm cooling fan needs to face in a downward direction.

Did he state if the fan is up or down. The psu works fine in either position. Somethings you don't want the fan down. If you have deep carpeting the air flow from the bottom is not good enough.

The Rosewill Blackbone computer case has the PSU top mounted.
