Default Fractal Core 1500 Owners? Question about bottom fan

This case has got my attention by its simple and clean looks. Sleeper if you like. But hey :)

Do you guys know the clearance between the bottom 140mm fan and the psu lenght? I want to mount an evga supernova g2 750watts which is apart 180mm in lenght. Can I still mount an 140 or do I need to downsize to 120?

I haven't got the parts yet but planning to buy them at the start of next month.

Not positive as I haven't seen a review on that specific case, but based on the case size I would say with a 180mm psu you won't get any bottom intake fan (or if you do it will likely be 120mm). If you want a 140mm fan in the bottom the PSU will probably have to be a standard short one (forget if its 140 or 160mm for them).

I could be wrong, but I would be surprised with a case of that size.

From that site "Supports ATX PSUs up to 155 mm deep when using the primary bottom fan location; when not using this fan location longer PSUs can be used"

Ah right. Didn't see. Too much unformated wall of text on their website :( So is there a 750 watts psu in the market with that lenght that isn't complete junk?

Seasonic G Series is 160mm so thats off the table. Apart they want me to use Fractal Edison M which is 150mm. Now that's how you get more money out of products

Edit: Found something. CoolerMaster V750. Any good?
