This is a PSU support mount for the Magnum line of case (M8,M10,MH10,T10,TH10,SMH10,STH10, SMA8 and TX10) The PSU support bracket reduces strain on the mounting threads of long & heavy power supplies. Not required, but can be helpful on 1000+ watt PSU's. PSU mounting tape is included to help reduce vibration. Specify standard or reverse orientation for standard or reverse ATX cases except STH10 Cases, see note below.
Single Wide MAGNUM Cases - Uses either Standard or Reverse PSU support mounts. Standard ATX layout - the Standard PSU Mount installs on the cable management side, and the Reverse PSU mount installs on the MB side. Reverse ATX layout - the Standard PSU Mount installs on the MB side, and the Reverse PSU mount installs on the cable management side.

Not absolutely necessary but when you start getting those large power supplies, it's nice having support. It gives a nice cosmetic look also, all around worth it. You've gone this far with a high end case, why not add finishing touches.

I purchased this because I'm planning for a rather large 1250 Watt power supply. They say it isn't "necessary" but I take comfort in knowing that the supply isn't being suspended by four small screws at the back of the cabinet. This shelf is nice and for the price hard pass up. It's good value.

Koolance 1300/1700 watt
Size 239.8 mm long x 135.0 mm tall
Note the length does not include the water block or fittings. The dimensions is the PSU case only.
Weight: 16.50 LBS or 7.48 KG dry weight.
Doing a dry weight test for the fit and support. Caution the Koolance PSU has been discontinued and will not work properly in this orientation the PSU must be mounted flat only if you still own one.
The Koolance PSU had to be mounted flat not on the side and in one specific orientation or you would damage the PSU. Always mounted the Koolance PSUs in a computer cases with bottom mount cases only. Because of the PSU weight factor and size of the PSU. would never attempt to put a Koolance 1300/1700w PSU in the upper mounts or mid mounts in a computer case. The PSU must be supported from the back mounting plate and at the bottom of the PSU. The PSU had to be supported from the bottom of the PSU case and many times you ended up adding padding between the case and the bottom of the PSU. Wanted to test the mount with the 1300/1700w liquid cooled PSU. Because of its size and weight. I do not believe there is a heavier or larger PSU on the market could be mistaken not An expert. The Koolance PSU requires a special adapter plate provided by Koolance to fit a standard PSU mount. To fit the PSU in some cases you had to use a case extension on certain cases because of the length of the PSU.
For testing purposes opted to raise the PSU mount to the upper PSU mounting option. If there is going to be an issue mounting any PSU in this mount and damaging the CaseLabs Case or the threads in the PSU for the mounting bracket. After taking the CaseLabs Support bracket and adding the Anti Vibration strip pads installed mounted the support bracket to the case very simple installation. The PSU mount with the anti vibration pads fit perfectly. The pads are not only for anti vibration they protect the PSU when you slide a PSU into position for mounting purposes. Slid in the Koolance 1300/1700 PSU and mounted the adapter plate to the CaseLabs PSU mount on the back of the case. Then bolted down the PSU to the adapter plate. Very impressed the CaseLabs Case frame did not sag, twist or bend due to the quality of CaseLabs Cases and PSU mount. The mount did its trick and eliminated any possibility of damage to the case frame or holes in the back of the case and eliminated any possibility of striping out the screw holes in the back of the mount for the PSU. My concern was stripping out the mounting screw holes in the back of the PSU and damaging the PSU from the weight of the PASU itself. I added leverage to the frame and the PSU mount by pushing down on the end of the PSU to add torque to the mount and Case Labs Frame. Not sure how much torque I added since I do not have any way to measure the applied pressure I will say I was not afraid to apply a good deal of pressure on the end of the PSU since the PSU is solid and secure. The case Labs Frame did not move and the mounting plate did its trick.
My recommendation to Case Labs for an improvement on the PSU mounting plate is to add connectors for Zip Ties on the back of the mounting plate. There is plenty of room between the back of the mounting plate and the back of the mother board tray to coil in a loop excessive PSU cabels and zip tie them down. This would really be beneficial if you are using Cable extensions . By coiling up the excessive cable and mounting it to the back of the PSU mounting plate then you do not have any cables mounted to the back of the mother board tray. This makes removing the mother board tray for maintenance or hardware updates very simple.
Over all the Mounting plate for the PSU is not required but the benefits certainly beneficial for the following reasons.
1. Helps protect the PSU from damage. Possible to damage the PSU mounting threads in the back of a PSU without the mounting plate to give added support to the PSU.
2. Cleaner install for the PSU
3. Improved cable management.
Suggestion add 2 slots to the back of the plate of the PSU mounting bracket for zip ties for improved cable management.

much rather my psu sits on the mount that suspended by four screws. just make sure you think through the orientation you will require.

At first i was confused as why there was a gap between the bracket and the PSU. Then I figured I'd try the rubber pad provided with the bracket and that solved the issue. Great support for your PSU, i recommend.

Works well to support larger PSUs especially with the supplied rubber pad.

Everything in life needs love and support. Why deny your PSU?
I had no issues installing these. Everything lines ups and fits.

Bought this to support my Strider 1500W which is very long a heavy. This mount does a very good job in supporting the PSU and the included of rubber pad strip helps reduce vibrations from the power supply.

The PSU mount looks good but doesn't make contact with my ABS 1050W PSU, so it isn't actually supporting it.
[The gap is for the rubber foam pads that are supplied with the mount. Thanks - CaseLabs]

THIS SIMPLE IDEA FOR A POWER SUPPLY SUPPORT GIVE ALL CASELABS OWNERS THAT LITTLE EXTRA PEACE OF MIND KNOWING THEIR LONG AND OR HEAVY POWER SUPPLIES ARE THAT LITTLE EXTRA SUPPORTED. DEFINATELY WORTH BUYING FOR YOUR CASELABS CASES ^_^.
