    PSU

    I'm looking for a PSU which is 140mm in length, 56mm in height and 82mm in width.

    Are these difficult to source or am I trying all the wrong search terms?

    That's not a standard size. Might have been a PSU made for the particular case ?

    That's a standard 1U format PSU. You can get some here LinITX.com - 1U Power Supplies.

    Sounds like a Flex ATX to me.

    I assume this is some sort of slimline PC PSU? (I'm assuming this because of the size specifics)
    If so, try searching for PSU's of the relevant format (ATX, Micro-ATX, etc, full listing of form factors here: ATX - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ). i doubt many vendors will advertise by size but if you can identify sellers with options, most should have a ruler to get you the dimensions. It would be worth checking any venting locations too. In a previous job we bought a stack of PSU's for some Enlight cases which fitted but the PSU vent was located on the opposite side to the original and was obstructed by the case side.

    HEC make a lot of PSU's you could have a look at their web-site as they list dimensions on there I believe.

    Of course if I've assumed wrong, this post will be largely irrelevant

    Good luck

    flex atx - Google Search

    I'm sure one of these should fit, flex atx power supplies vary slighty but even if you get a slightly smaller one you should be ok.

    That's the same sort of thing, but, the pluggy bit is on the wrong side.

    That's too long.

    It appears to be a rebadged Biostar Idaq machine.

    Scan.co.uk: Biostar Ideq 300G, S775, Intel 195G, DDR 400, PCI-E (x16), SATA 1.5Gb/s, On Board VGA, IDE RAID

    This is what I want:

    That Biostar Ideq is a PicoBTX case.

    A PicoPSU + AC Adapter might be an option depending on the spec of your PC.

    Edit. This PSU will fit and supports computers using Pentium 4 processors upto 3.0 GHz. There's one on eBay for 34.95. As with the PicoPSU you need an external AC adapter.
