    It looks like that system is BTX like the E521 I have sitting on the floor behind me. You would need to buy a BTX case, but you may have to do some mods if the screw holes for the mobo don't line up. Then you may be out of luck on an I/O panel that matches up with your case and your mobo.

    the thermaltake armor supports btx if you grab the additional btx plate.

    Armor is a tower case. I believe the OP wants a desktop style case. Nothing like that for sale on NewEgg, as BTX never caught on. You might try ebay or the rest of the web, but your options would be limited.
