As for the Zalman, there's no easy way to make it fit... The only thing I could find was this... http://www.frostytech.com/permalink.cfm?NewsID=51370

I'm not sure why the PSU isn't lining up correctly. Give us a link to both your specific case and PSU you're talking about.

I didn't really notice that it's just an article 'til now... I guess you can't buy it. But I'm sure if you looked hard enough, there must be one around somewhere.

Also, what do you mean when you say the PSU and case don't line up? It doesn't slide in all the way, or it slides in but the screw holes don't match?

the psu slides in just fine but the screw holes dont line up to the case. I have one hole lined up and its kind of tipped sideways. should I flip it 180¬ļ and see if it lines up? thanks for your help so far.

It's upside down. I bet my sister on it.

thank you so much. it worked. i assumed that the writing on the back on the psu would be readable when installed but i guess not. now if i could just find those adapters... thanks for your help.
