    Default PSU size confusion

    I've got a Thermaltake TR2 700 AL2NC-A (single rail ATX) that just failed it's smoke test after about 7 years of very satisfactory performance. When I measure the unit, the physical dimensions come out to 139.7 x 85.73 x 149.23 mm. (5.5 x 3 3/8 x 5 7/8 inches). When I look at the product pages for that exact model on NewEgg and Amazon, they both list the largest dimension as greater than 9inches. The case I had this PSU in doesn't have a lot of space for a longer PSU. So now I'm having a major dilemma - how do I find a replacement PSU that I can be sure will fit in the existing case? I'd just order the exact same one, but the dimension mismatch has me scratching my head. quaf**k??

    The dimensions on the store pages don't measure the power supply unit, they measure its packaging or additional store packaging.
