That's not a PSU issue. That's user error.

Let's slow down here for a minute. The GPU overheating isn't an issue with the PSU. And when you say the "PSU won't fit", keep in mind that all motherboards use the same 24-pin motherboard power connector and the 8-pin CPU power connector. So when you say that the PSU won't fit, it really won't fit your case and not the motherboard. Now that said, are you overclocking your CPU and/or GPU? Because that can lead to overheating issues. Also - on current NVIDIA cards (1XXX series and up) keep in mind that the fans themselves won't power on until the GPU is being used for something other than in idle mode (such as playing games, etc).
