I recently bought the EVGA DG-85 Full Tower K-Boost Gaming Case to replace my mid tower.
The dimensions on the EVGA case is 27 x 10.6 x 25.3 in.
(As Shown Below)



The dimensions on my old case is 18.5 x 7.9 x 17.9 in.
(As Shown Below)

I am currently waiting to put my build into this new case but I wasn't able to find the answer to my questions in reviews or documentation. I know the difference between EATX, ATX, MICRO ATX, and Mini ITX motherboards. The manual for the EVGA case said the form factor is EATX. So, will my motherboard line up right inside the case being an ATX? I am also wondering if my cables will reach the desired destinations inside the EVGA case. It's massive so instead of trying and failing I was hoping that maybe someone could provide insight on the matter before I rip apart my PC just to find out that the cables aren't long enough for the case. Does anyone know if it will work out just fine? Also, the EVGA case supports up to 8 140mm case fans. I can't decide if I should wait to order new fans or just use the ones off my old case? I figured this would be the best place to get some answers.

Thanks for your time.

Thanks for the reply. Do you happen to know if I might have cable issues?

Depends on how long the cables are. Typically not, though. That compatibility is just for the motherboard. It doesn't allude to any cable lengths, etc.

I mean... pull a cable out and see bud. Check specs for psu cable length... get a ruler /measuring tape.

Yeah very true, I'll bust out a measuring tape/ruler then to see if they will be long enough. I hope so I already decided to give it a go when I get home. Wish me luck!
Thanks for your input.

Read reviews on the DG87. Same case with a few more options. When EVGA sampled, everyone got the top tier version. When I reviewed it I used ATX, and recall no issues with wiring.

Thanks I'll check them out. I noticed some differences between the cases in the documentation, I decided to go with the DG-85 but ill look into the DG-87 a little more. That's good, I might have been over thinking it because when I got the case I didn't realize it was going to be so big. I've been watching youtube reviews on it and alot of the guys are using ATX mobos, I think I'll be fine with cable management. Now its just down to deciding if I want to order new fans or go with my old ones.

Use old ones first so you don't have to spend money. If they fail to do the job, then look into new ones. That's my 2 cents worth.

I'll definitely use my old ones. I don't want to spend anymore money than I already have on this build. Thanks for the advice.
