Oh, crud. EATX cases seems to mean "PSU mounted on the bottom rear of the case." "Why do you want to top mount it?" Because the PSU's heat goes right out of the top of the case, zip, just like that with a top mounted PSU.

Argh, looks like I messed up. EATX cases seem to feature at least 7 fans and as many as 11. So bye bye to quiet, which this Lenovo does very well.
I don't want another wind tunnel machine. The last box I built measured 70db at the top rear. I had to be careful about heat, I was overclocking it.
That booger was LOUD. Sorry to be APITA, should have looked before I leaped.
