any exist? my case will be like 3.5" wide probably 12" tall, more power the better
In that size? No, probably not.
Go external, if you intend on such a small case.
why dont you get a silenX 250W awesome psus
You can't fit that AND a motherboard in such a small enclosure. Not with the rest of the things it takes to run a PC (HDD, optical, and so on). If you're going to go external, you may as well get a regular ATX PSU, as they're cheaper and easier to get a hold of.
Just extend the cables, maybe make your own jack on the back of the PC so that it's modular, and any ATX PSU will run it.
I believe that still requires an external brick of some sort, to change the AC to DC. It is pretty small, though, if I remember correctly (somewhere around the size of a laptop brick), so you could give that a shot.
The smallest PSU that I've seen with the most wattage is Shuttle's PC40. That's what I'm going to use for my current project as I couldn't find anything stronger with that size of an enclosure. It measures 3.2"(w) x 1.7"(H) x 7.5"(L). You can go here to check it out.

I got a 300W 1U PSU from eBay for about $70.
I think it's almost 4" wide, though.
