haha so I already had everything correctly screwed off, I feel stupid
is removing the psu supposed to be hard because it just does not want to come out ;s

Also does corsair automatically give you a warranty when you buy the psu or do you have to buy one from the site?

Normally you will get a manufacturers warranty of at least a year.

It should not be that hard to get out but the PSU may be stuck. Also make sure to check and see if there is a screw on the inside holding the PSU in place. Sometimes there will be a lip on the PSU itself that screws to the inside of the computer case.

Due to some recent events I can't really afford that price at the moment. Would this one be okay for a temporary replacement? (a month at max)

OK that should work fine as long as it has enough power connectors for your drives and the correct connection for your motherboard. :)

You need to know if your drives are ide or sata because the data cable and power connectors are different.

The power connector for the hard disk drive is too short, is there something I could buy that would make it longer?

On the new PSU?
There should be one set that has two molex connectors on it and it is a longer wire set,
If not you can get a molex extension like this HERE. That will extend your current connector 6 inches and also give you a extra connector.
