Hello, I bought the new PSU and I am having a hard time trying to fit it in. It feels too tight when I force it in and feel like its gonna break. So I am just letting PSU stick out a little from the case for now. Should I just keep it this way or force it in?

Case: Fractal Design Meshify C (Middle Tower)
PSU: EVGA Supernova 850 T2 80+ Titanium

You know you have to remove the case backplate for install PSU ? just for make sure.
Have you read the manual how to install the PSU ? maybe it will help, on page number 3.

Gerald6049: Yes, I removed the backplate when I was installing PSU

GrandSACHI: Will I need a new PSU then or should I keep it sticking out a little? If possible, I don't want to change PSU again

Because in this case, the PSU is located at the bottom, having it sticking out a few mm should not be overly detrimental, especially if you can find a way to secure it in some way. However, it would be important to avoid moving around the computer, as moving parts, especially as heavy as this PSU can easily damage internal fragile elements. If you ever need to move the computer, even if it's just to clean it, you will have to be extra careful.
