It's also quite wide: 445mm. Most consumer electronics measure in below 
440mm, and that's the size of my cabinet. I couldn't fit my Antec Fusion 
in because it was 5mm too wide (additionally, the case fans are on the 
side, so you need even more room to the side to allow for proper air flow).

Some of the SilverStone cases measure up a bit better (for example, the 
ML-02, but that one is low-profile, so you're limited there as well...)
