CM Storm Stryker + E-ATX Boards?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello, i plan on building a new system in the nearest future and i was thinking about the new CM Storm Stryker. Although when i looked at its specifications, it says that it only supports the ATX, M-ATX and XL-ATX boards. I Was gonna use the G1. Sniper 3 along with the i7 3770k and i dont know if this case will fit my motherboard?

@@ Edit. One other question, do you think i should get the CM Stryker or the HAF X?

With regards to your motherboard question, E-ATX is wider, XL-ATX is longer. So the Stryker might be long enough, but it seems it isn't wide enough to support the G1 Sniper 3.

In terms of choosing a case, the HAF X has great airflow but I don't find it aesthetically pleasing. It's a tough decision choosing a case. For an E-ATX compatible case, try looking at the NZXT Switch 810.

Hope this helps.

the g1 sniper isn't actually e-atx, it's gamer e-atx or ssi ceb with atx mounting hole
that motherboard should fit pretty easily
atx is 305mm x 244mm
the sniper is 305mm x 264mm
e-atx is 305mm x 330mm
so the sniper is only 20mm wider than standard atx, not the 86mm of e-atx

if you look at pics of the stryker with a motherboard in it http://www.overclock.net/t/1295932/cm-storm-stryker-pc#post_17968331 it might cover up the cable holes a bit, but should fit without a problem

i really wish they would come up with a standard industry term for these motherboards since all the top manufacturers have at least one currently in production they seem to be sticking, i mean past ssi ceb, since they use standard atx mounting holes it should have it's own moniker

edit: heh, i forgot the link to the specs of the motherboard in the pic which is a standard sized motherboard at 305mm x 244mm

references to sizes

that's up to you, both cases will fit the motherboard you want to use, the haf x is a bit easier to water cool as you can fit a 360 rad in the top natively and the stryker can only take 240 rad, if you don't plan on water cooling, pick one that you like the look of more since they are both great cases
