    If at first it doesn’t fit, get a bigger hammer.

    Hi-Tech Rednecks strike again!

    A sledgehammer and a sawsall always works… ;)

    that should help a little with any heat issues………….

    I can’t count how many times I have done that or worse to get someones computer working again because they had a computer that used a proprietary PS. Just another case mod. Plus, always remember duct tape is your friend.

    Why waste good power supply on old out of date computer? The computer from the back looks like a Dell.

    That’s thinking outside the box!

    How well is this case grounded?

    If you’ve got a job to do and something stands in your way, get the Stihl saw out.

    I don’t see a problem with running a PSU outside the case. They generate a lot of heat, and they are not sensitive. The only issue is cable length. It would be better, I think, to cut a deep U-shaped cut in the side of the computer, cut the end off the trimming, and tape the rest of the end back on, so you have a hole, and run the cables through that (before you replace the end, I mean). Plug up the hole where the PSU went in so excess dust doesn’t get in, and rig a filter over your PSU’s intake fan, and you’ve done the computer a service. Upgraded PSU plus less heat generated. Win-win.

    There’s ingenuity and then there’s just cheap. It’s obvious this wasn’t a tower, why go to the trouble.

    Somehow, I don’t think that would pass an electrical safety test
