Is it possible to fit an SFX power supply in a Define Nano S?

Tom's hardware reviewed the Define Nano S a few months ago, and they think it's a great case for SFF builds.

However, that's not the point. When I was reading the review, I noticed that the reviewer used a SFX power supply for the test build, and it fit securely inside the case. The product page of the Nano S says nothing about SFX compatibility.

Is it possible to mount a SFX power supply inside the Nano S? I mean, you can fit one inside a case that explicitly states support for larger PSUs, but I was wondering whether there were ways for the user to secure a SFX unit inside the case.

A lot of the sfx power supplies come with atx converter mounting brackets, silver stone provide it in the box with sfx units and I believe corsair offer the options with thier units.

Although the nano define s is not exactly small and you can get plenty of short normal sized atx units that would fit fine, I would opt for one of them over an sfx unit as they usually have slightly quieter fans with good units.

I know. I was just curious how the people over at Tom's Hardware managed to do it.
