Hello everyone...I have been thinking about my next build and wanted to know if anyone knew...Can I fit an ASUS Maximus IV mobo in a Silverstone FT02?

Any help would be great. The ASUS MAX IV is an E-ATX

Yes, it can.

Asus Maximus IV Extreme is Exended ATX (12'' x 10.6'') and FT02 can take in ATX size (max = 12'' x 11'').
FT02 spec page: http://www.silverstonetek.com/produc...id=242&area=en

Additionally, this review reported positively:-
Quote:
Motherboard size limitation:* Although the Fortress FT02 was not designed for Extended ATX motherboards, the internal space can still allow installation for a board with a width of up to 11 inches.* Enthusiast motherboards such as the ASUS Rampage II Extreme (10.6 inches) and the EVGA X58 SLI Classified (10.375 inches) are wider than the standard ATX board specifications of 9.6 inches.* Both the ASUS and the EVGA boards will have no problems fitting inside the FT02.*

Mine fits just fine with good room around the board.
