Thanks for that link. It is quite helpful. Since this is my first PSU purchase where I am doing some research, let me ask this. It appears from pictures that they all are the same size and and there is nothing to match up to fit my PC case (mine is a custom built PC). It this correct?

No Mack they are different sizes insomuch as to the power output of them but on the whole they are around the same size. So for a Corsair HX 650 the dimensions are 150mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 150mm(L) and within say a few millimeters so would the models of similar output be.

But for ones such as the HX 1050 I have in my main machine the dimensions are roughly the same in height and width because most cases I have worked with have a standard area size for that the 1050 and other similar power output PSU,s the length would be around a third of the 650 length again so giving you (only rough idea as I am away from home right now) is 150mm(W) x 86mm(H) x 200mm (L) - maybe a slight bit higher and a tad wider but not much as I said they need to fit what the case people make their case specs.

Al you need to do is Google dimensions of Blogs ******** model and it should give you the outer dimensions.

When you choose a power supply. Google that power supply and tick on the specs. Many will give you the dimensions.

Just looking on line at pictures your case should be able to use any standard power supply made today except maybe the very high wattage because of the length and possibly the clearance from the motherboard.
All mounting holes for power supplies are standard on aftermarket power supplies.

ICit2lol and I posted at the same time.

Let us know what you have now and what you want to get and we can look some more.

Basically power supplies today are designed to fit just about and case except some made by Dell, Acer and the like. They do strange things at times.

All ATX PSUs will have the same height and width—only the length will vary—so they will fit in most cases. Some PC manufacturers (such as Dell) use proprietary PSUs and cases that are not always compatible with ATX standards.

Yep well just what I said really apart from the fixing points I have seen them vary by just a few millimetres I was not implying they had monstrous differences only the large ones being longer as I quoted.

Yep Jack mate this will give a lot of dimensions I just posted in hardware for interested parties.

Thanks to all of you for the info. I have about decided on the Corsair CX600. I just will have to measure the one that is in there now and see how it stacks up size wise. == Just a side story, in 2000 I bought a Compact computer. About six years later, the PSU went out. I priced one through Compact since theirs was proprietary, $300 for just the PSU. I went out and bought a new PC custom built and never will again buy a name brand PC. It is crazy. == One more question. The Corsair CX600 has a Modular and Non-Modular for about the same price. It seems like the Modular would be the better deal. Have any of you used Modular before?

Mack here is the info you need including the size mate CX600 ? 80 PLUS® Bronze Certified Power Supply

Nice little unit and yes I have used non, semi, and full modular units all are good except if as essenbe once mentioned to me that if you need to replace the unit with a full modular you only have to disconnect at the unit end and not disembowel the whole machine LOL!!

Modular is great. You only plug in the cables you need, saving case space and involves less heat in your rig.
