Same question asked.
Looks like it will fit, but installation of other parts in the case may be a tad more difficult.

It looks very possible, found this in the storm scout fan club here at OCN

I cannot say for sure but from the available info, it does have a high degree of fitting either the E760 or the E770 into the Storm Scout. My analysis is:-
ATX is 305x244
E-ATX is 305x330

And EVGA E770 is 305x264 (http://www.evga.com/products/moreInfo.asp?pn=141-GT-E770-A1&family=Motherboard%20Family&series=All%20Motherboards&sw=5)

EVGA E760 is also 305x264 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188048)

So, the 2 mobos are not full size E-ATX and the difference is +20mm. From all available pictures in the net, the distance between the edge of an ATX mobo and the 5.25'' bays frame looks a little more than 20mm. So, it will be a tight fit.

One important issue is whether the horizontal SATA ports along the edge of the E760/770 will clash with the case. However, the pics below show that this is unlikely.

450

Finally, the pic in the post above is taken from post #11778 in this thread. There is another pic as well.
