The PSU is only 180mm long, I think it will fit just fine as it is the same depth as mine.

Yeah mine is longer then that, the cables are a little tighter then they should, but any PSU should fit in this case, if not I can't see it fitting in any.
LOL, well I'm sure yours is fine.

With some quick measuring I would say that any PSU 220mm long or shorter will easily fit. Any PSU 250mm long or shorter will fit if you are willing to really work at cable management.

You would need a [bleep] long PSU before it would not fit in this case.

Well their website does not give the dimensions on the spec sheet but looking at the pictures I can tell you that you will have absolutely no problem fitting this into the Antec 900 case, and you should have room to spare easily.

My PSU is a bit tight, but far from having it not fitting. Don't even ask what I was saying there, I completely agree with Adebisi.
I need to take more time posting before I hit the post button and leave :whistling:

Drumbum there is one thing I want to mention. Which gigabyte motherboard are you getting, because if you are getting the same one as me its a bit tight with the mobo as the PCI cards cover the fan on the PSU thus reducing airflow. So if your planning on fill all your PCI slots this may be a problem with the crossfire boards, this is one of the things I noticed when I built my rig. Though if your not planning on filling the two PCI slots then this won't be an issue.

The only issues with a PSU might be hight, mine fits very snuggly under the motherboard "latch" and I couldn't have a PSU any taller then what it already is.

Im getting one pretty much exactly like yours except it has DDR3 support (Im patient). Im getting it to the option of using Crossfire. I will be using one of each type of slot. A PCI-E x16, x1, and a PCI slot. Ill figure out a way to get good airflow. I cant wait. Once the other Gigabyte P35 mobos come out, and the new quads come out, Im buying like in a second.

The boards are great, I can't wait till I get a chance to start some overclocking and see how they perform. But I'm going to wait till the end of summer to buy my aftermarket cooling.
