Not really, Most cheapie chinse cases were shipped without PSUs. I
know because I used to work for short term at one crap shop.
And many who do sell junk cases has psu already but some decent cases
got decent PSU removed and lower quality PSU put in to expand profit
margins. If someone do find a exact case that is decent one with
different PSU (usually lower quality than case itself) other than
the original case maker put in with. CRY FOUL TIME!
