tight as what 1/2" is ok anything beyond that I would say is too tight b/c you cant even get at the plugins in the back of the CD drive and i would start to worry about cross-over heat from the PSU.
As for the PSU as long as you have the connectors plugged in correctly (not backwards / and thats hard to do) you will be fine. There is only 1 connector to the motherbord (a 20 or 24 pin) and it only goes on one way. The same is true for CD drives, Hard Drives, and floppy drives.
