pos=piece of sh*t
well its not the case compatibility. any atx psu should fit in the case. its just the quality of the psu in general. for example your lousy 600w has probably the case amount of power as a corsair 400cx 400w psu...
and it just is less stable and wont last as long and isnt as good quality

Ok fine i understand that my psu is not of a good brand or quality but atleast it should fit in the case right why is it bothering the motherboard?

Alright here are some pics showing less gap between power supply and motherboard and see the i/o panel the motherboard is not fitting to the i/o panel unless i remove my power supply and push my motherboard a bit downwards

You obviously have not attached the motherboard correctly. Just look at the IO sheild, the connectors should be touching it and peeking out the back of the case. I would recommend taking the motherboard out of the case and start fitting it in again. You should do this; Put in the motherboard stand offs, put the IO shield in place, put the motherboard in so connectors are peeking out the back of the case, screw the motherboard into the stand offs, then insert the PSU into the case and connect it up.
There was no need to change the case, the 922 is a great case and it should have fit fine (unless you do have an extended motherboard but i think you have a standard ATX that would have fit).

That i know but to align the motherboard to fit the i/o panel i need more space which is blocked by my psu and if i fix my motherboard first then i am unable to fix psu
