Nice! So definitely possible then. The reason it's taller is because the rear I/O is twice the height. The backplate I linked is for thin mITX, found in a very few Intel boards, and it apparently allows an expansion slot to sit on top of that at a standard height. If you're willing to void warranties, then desoldering onboard sound among other ports would allow that backplate to be used with practically any motherboard. Several ports could even be resoldered to a header and used elsewhere.
