Instead of asking me, how about you go and count the number of slots yourself?
Then go to the case of your choice and count to see if it is present.

And features, like what exactly? Ask yourself how a motherboard relates to a case.

Tou know a case will work with a motherboard if:
It has the required number of PCI slots
It meets the required ATX form factor spec.
And related to the Psu: if the case fits ATX form factor psus

Heck, even a power button and Front I/O is optional.

But as listed above, an enclosure has very little to do. It just covers up aupports and provides cooling for components, there purely for aesthetic reasons. If you case meets EATX form factor and has 10 pci slot openings, then guess what? It works with all ATX form factors at or below EATX, and all mobos with 10 or lower pci slots.

Now you can figure it out yourself, it is that simple, you don't need to ask us or always fear things not working. A case isn't that important. You look at the specs of the mobo in terms of size and slots, check the case specs and match them up.
Doesn't take asking a forum, takes about 2 minutes on two tabs on one browser with two google searches and subsequent link clicking.

Not that simple for someone who has never done this or touched a case after the year 2000. I was also hoping someone had some measurements of these boards:

http://pcper.com/category/tags/x79

8 PCI should be enough since all these x79 mobos have 5 pci slots. But are pci slots the same as pciE slots? I'm assuming same size, just different connection into the actual board?

My GPU will probably have around 150watts, this processor will up to at least 180watts when OC'd, so I'm assuming my current PSU will be okay?
