i understand, mine roar like a motorboat due to the passive cooling.. biggrin.gif

maybe you can get an idea of cases from here, some are expensive but you should find one that fits you needs and price

it is not easy to find something you might like for these boards..

My friend you do not have an "EATX" motherboard, you have an SSI-EEB and if you buy a case for an EATX you will be missing some vital holes in the motherboard tray. The dual Zeons have 8 screw holes around them that are not present on a standard EATX case tray. Also the end of the board will not have any place for stand offs as well. I would only buy an EATX case if you own a tap and drill set and are willing to heavily modify the mobo tray. Otherwise You are left having to either purchase a pedestal case that is SSI-EEB compliant or putting it in a rack. I know this because I own the exact motherboard and went through this exact process. EATX is a forgotten standard and nobody makes boards to that standard anymore.

Thanks for the info, drilling and tapping isn't an issue. thumb.gif
