Asus X99-E WS board & Phanteks Enthoo Evolv compatibility.

post #1 of 3

Hey guy's, future thanks for any advice given.

So I've just gotten my mitts on the Asus X99-E WS board and am now eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Enthoo Evolv tempered glass edition I've ordered.

And now.. after checking the measurements of the mobo and case (of which I should have done before any purchases) I'm concerned the non standard E-ATX form factor of the WS board is going to be just that little too much for the Evolv to handle.

The measurements of the WS board come's to 167mm wide whilst the Evolv states a Max width of 164mm, sure 3mm dosent sound a whole lot but I've had incompatibilities with many a item well within recommended sizing. The reason why I'm even slightly concerned about the 3mm over extension is because of the way the motherboard tray ends with a rise (picture below)

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 95



What's the consensus? The case has NOT yet shipped meaning I'd not have any trouble canceling my order now, but I've absoloutley fallen for the Evolv and haven't yet even dared to think of another case since laying eyes upon the beautiful creation from Phanteks.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Did you find out if this motherboard fits in the case?

No, I'm sorry dude, but I mean if I were a gambling man my money would be on the board fitting.
