Just figured I'd spin you a link anyway; they might suit your needs.

I actually considered raid 0 (and still am) but I plan on getting a 128gb ssd which should be enough for the commonly used programs. Can you set up raid 0 with the asus maximus iv mobo or do I need a raid controller?
Thank You OCN!

Case:


Case won't work with your motherboards. Case is an ATX format, and the board is Extended ATX.

This will save you a headache, look for another case or different mb
GOOD LUCK!

Thanks for bringing this up HAF922. This actually initially caused me to veer away from the Maximus IV, but after reading some things I do believe that it will fit after all.

From http://pcgamingcorner.com/wordpress/?p=3010:

"From its inception, the FT02 was designed to accommodate oversized components. Therefore, it is possible to fit motherboards that are larger than standard ATX (12†x 9.6â€). This includes motherboards such as EVGA’s x58 Classified series (12†x 10.375â€) and the Asus Rampage II Extreme (12†x 10.6â€) where the maximum motherboard limitation is 12†x 11â€. Speaking of oversized components, the FT02 accepts videocards up to 12.2†in length, which includes all nVidia and ATI offerings, even the beastly ATI HD5970."

I've actually read something similar to this on a few sites, but it looks like the dimension I have to work with are 12" x 11" and the motherboard is 12" x 10.6", according to Newegg. Snug, but it should fit. Anyone happen to have this case with an oversize motherboard?
Thank You OCN!

I just got the HAF 932 case in the other day and it's a beast. There's some good deals on Ebay on the case. I got mine off Craigslist for $75!!! The HAF X is very similar. It just has a different front and side. I'd go with whatever one you can find cheaper.
