Hey fellers. I'm helping a friend out and we need a case that can take an EE-ATX board. It's about 332mm wide and 300mm down, and I can't exactly find a case that's not a massive amount of money that'll fit that.

Any ideas?

I have one eatx board and when I use it I use my Define R4. I am not sure if that will be big enough, but it can hold the eatx board and do 2x triple slot GTX 580s in SLi.

I have a Supermicro EE-ATX motherboard in an old Cooler Master HAF 932 case. I had to bend the two top power supply supports out of the way and use them plastic motherboard stand-offs on some of the motherboard mounting holes, but it fit pretty good with plenty of room.

Now, finding a CM HAF 932 might be a tough chore.

The Phanteks Enthoo Pro 2 or Corsair 7000D might satisfy that itch. If money is no object the Thermaltake Tower 900 or Corsair Obsidian 1000 would also be good choices.

Hey fellers. I'm helping a friend out and we need a case that can take an EE-ATX board. It's about 332mm wide and 300mm down, and I can't exactly find a case that's not a massive amount of money that'll fit that.

Any ideas?

I've got the Antec P101 Silent case, it has 8 x 3.5" drive bays and a single 5.25" but those can all be removed. It may require some additional standoffs, but otherwise installing a 332mm-wide motherboard should work just fine. You can even keep two 3.5" bays and use the other HDD cable holes to route the motherboard cables, since the cable holes for a standard motherboard will be blocked off. That case costs a little over US$100.

Define 7 XL? It's not cheap though but at least it has room for everything.

If the screw layout is E-ATX compatible and the board is just wider it could fit in the standard Torrent (Fractal Design)


Will simply go a little beyond the raised area

SSI-EEB? Which motherboard are you planning to plant in there?
If it's some dual-socket Supermicro board, then the easiest option is some used 3U/4U server chassis. If you want tower - just look for SSI-EEB/EATX compatible options(300x330mm).
Even my cheap-ass 1U chassis can fit that, only it will require a bunch of super-loud 40mm fans to keep it working. If you want new - CM MasterBox NR600P should do.
Alternatively you could try modding a good-ole CM Cosmos =) Pretty sure that with HDD cages "surgically removed" you can fit two EATX motherboards and a midget on a bike in it :D :D :D :D
