Default What PSU will fit in this case?


I'm getting ready to start a new computer and I am considering doing a blue UV case (this one ) and I am worried that the PSU won't fit. To make matters a little more difficult I am going to use a 915P motherboard that has a 24pin connector for the power. I read several reviews that said that acrylic cases tend to run hot so I was going to use several more fans (one slot and one HDD cooler) so I'm worried about getting a powerful enough PSU (6 fans, SATA HDD, CD, SB Platinum, 3.2Ghz CPU, and Nvidia 6600GT). So after all of that my question is what PSU should I get. I'd like to get a cool looking PSU to go along with the case. I also read that the PSU slots for this case run a little small (near the middle of the page ).

I've heard mixed reviews about using a 24pin-to-20pin adapter.

What do you think?
