The steel enclosure of the Thermaltake Toughpower XT Series 775W power supply features a gray/brown finish and measures 160mm (6.3”) long, so it should fit into most cases.  The XT 775W PSU uses a single 140mm fan on the bottom for cooling.  The fan speed is automatically controlled by the internal component temperature (speeds up as the combined load and temperature increases).  The fan will also keep running for about 30 seconds after the PC is shut down for a little extra system cooling.
