I really don't recommend this brand, but this is the biggest PSU in the form factor I think your case takes.

Newegg.com - Athena Power AP-TFX40 400W TFX12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

I think in small form factors, the Athena is top... and infact made its way to Jonny
Athena Power AP-TFX40 400W Review
It scored a 7, but jonnyguru is tough.. Though seems build quality does suck ***.. infact its the first 3 i've seem from him.

I don't trust them because I had an Athena PSU literally explode on me. Wasn't pleasant to say the least.

Yha, judging by Jonnyguru's "Build Quality"..... That doesn't surprise me.
