I have that case, its like a big soda can. You are way better off getting an antec case with a 300 or 350w power supply. powmax 400w rating is more like 250w...it puts out 400w if its turned on inside an iceberg perhaps.

I also have a Powmax case. Power supply died a few days ago. You're definately getting what you paid for in this case.

I have built 2 computers with similar powmax cases and I would say the PSUs are fine for econo boxes that don't need a lot of juice.

I just replace my Powmax 400W with a Antec TRUE380. Granted, my Powmax's 12V+ was only 14A (unlike the on linked above being 25A), but I could not get my Barton 2500+ to push more than 2Ghz. Although, my Powmax did last me a few years, it definitely isn't an OCers dream :)
