Hello Folks!

My first post.

I'm wondering about the possiblity of externally mounting the PSU. And I don't just mean hanging it off the case, I mean like putting it in a different room. Maybe 5ft. away. Possible?

I did a handful of searches here, but no dice.

Thanks!

Yeah, it's possible. But why, man?

Here's how:
You can use a bunch of these: http://www.directron.com/atxextension.html
Or, you can do it yourself. Because ATX has all the wires exposed, it wouldn't be too hard to extend/splice the cables.
