I did this once... but only with the top open (for testing). The
power supply hit the extra connector of the ribbon cable that goes
to the mainboard.
I had plans one time of modifying an IPX power supply so that it
did not interfere (as that part of the power supply behind the
steel is empty).
Did you have the top on yours and how did you solve that problem ?
