Any guys running E-ATX boards in this chassis?

Im thinking of running a Gigabyte X79 UD5 in mine, but not sure how tight the fit will be.
So don't wanna go wasting cash if its not gonna fit.

Theres one or two guys on here that have posted e-atx boards into the chasis, but it will be really tight and i believe that one of them even used electrical tape to cap off the end of the board tray so that the mobo could rest on it.

Do you have the case or the mobo already? If you can get dimensions from the mobo I could try and check it against mine to see. Specific points would be from the lower most attachment point to the end of the board. I want to say someone squeezed an e-atx board into this case but it was a very tight squeeze.

I have the chassis already, but not the board.
Board dimensions are 30.5cm x 26.4cm.

Front filter is easy to remove ?
post #987 of 10491
Front filter is built into the housing, you have to remove the entire front bezel to access it. The bezel is held on by 6 tightly sprung tabs (5 in my case since one broke the first time I removed it) so it's not impossible but not easy. If you get dust between the front of the case and the actual mesh in the bezel you'd probably have to bend the tabs on the mesh to actually clean it off. Otherwise your best bet is to pull the front of the case and use duster to clean it out.

Due to the shape and design of the case I moved mine up onto my actual desk instead of having it on the floor like before so dust isn't as much of a concern for me anymore.

Little bit of metal bending should be easy enough (though for the record, I am on his side as to the fact that I shouldnt have to "correct" anything lol). Adding some pics of my old Haf 912 build that is going to help to populate this wonderful creation of a case along with some shots of the new box and some of it's soon to be new hardware. Almost want to call out of work tomorrow just so I can work on this. However, it will sadly have to wait til the weekend.

 

 

 

Whoa!!!  Did you accidentally get my last case?

 

Remember, I'm the only one that was supposed to get these bad cases.

 

I'm so very sorry that you too received a rocking front to back case.

 

That's the idea of purchasing a brand new case in that one shouldn't repair something that should've been done correctly in the first place especially chassis related which I witnessed that being bad in my 4 received.

 

So much for me "disappearing" from this thread. biggrin.gif

Yea I thought it was quite humorous that the last one u returned had the same issue. Luckily it took me about 10 minutes to re-adjust it and now it's good and level. I just wish i had time to work on it in the next couple of days. hate having to put things on hold.

If one purchases a DataVac they'll no longer be needing to take out a filter for dust bunny elimination. wink.gif
