I've been modding this old gateway case for a new build, but the problem is the psu space is on the top rear part and had an old latch locking pressure system to hold the old psu into place. I took that all out becuase the new psu will be longer than the built in latch, and was wondering how I could mount a psu in there so it would fall down onto my heatsink? I have some L-Connectors I could drill into the case but that only takes care of the rear part of the case and not sure if thats secure enough?

Thanks.

I can think of 3 options, perhaps one of them will help.

1 Drill holes on the back of the case to match the mounting holes of the PSU. make a template using the PSU. If you do this, make sure nothing else is inside the case and that you clean it out good before you mount the mobo, etc. metal shavings are deadly to PC parts.

2 Stick that sucker up with some automotive 3M double stick tape. I have some of that on my body kit on my '04 wrx and if it holds at 170mph, then your PSU should be no issue. just put it all over the top of the PSU, put it in place and maybe set it upside down with a heavy object on it overnight.

3. Find a different spot for the PSU, maybe the hard drive bay? Then it has nowhere to fall, and an L bracket can be used to hold it in place.
