We did tell you, multiple times to get a quality case.

The Antec 300 is a nice case, and costs less than what you paid for that used Alienware
crap.

Guys, I need help.

Can I report the store for FRAUD?

Before buying I send them an email for case specs, and they said they could not answer them, because the person who answered the emails, never saw the stock.

So now I look at their add to see if I missed anything talking about using a special power supply and its not there, So I feel like being cheated. cannot ask for a refund cause the shipping is actually way more than what the case costed me.

Is my reporting for fraud resonable? I don't even know what to do, am so mad right now.

it does seem resonable yes, also get the adamas if you ever feel like modding the aluminum will be a dream.

Do you guys think I can mod this? I feel its impossible.

my power supply is almost the same size of the hole of the case lol.
I feel like putting tape around it lol, but I know that if it falls, I just ruined over 3-400 bucks in components. So not only do I know its foolish to do that, I dont want to take that risk.

if you got some sheet metal, and made a holding plate, like maybe get old case and scrap it up lol. cut out a square, put some suports on it, put the psu in, then take another peice cut a hole for your psu, drill the holes in it so you can screw it into the original, its your best bet. then screw the plate holdign the psu up to the face plate for the baxc, also you would have to cut a hole in the bottom of you shelf plate to let the fan intake.
