Aorus x399 Xtreme in Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Case Fitting Trouble

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, has any one else had issues with the size of the Aorus X399 Xtreme motherboard in mid-tower E-ATX cases?

 

I have the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M and anoyingly the case has a "ramp" that stops the base plate "armour" of the board sitting flush with the back of the case.

 

On PC part Picker its listed as compatable https://pcpartpicker.com/products/case/?compatible_with=XT3H99#t=3

 

Is it safe to remove the back base plate, will there be any issue with heat? I removed it and it fits without it and but I had to remove the rubber cable grommets on the case too.

 

I'm going to use an AMD x2950 16 core cpu so its not as hungry as the 24 or 32 cpu's. 

 

Any advise much appreciated, I have asked Gigabyte support if there woul dbe a concern too.

Okay thanks wojtepanik,

 

Should I just take off these heat pad strips aswell? they were sandwiched between the plate.

It doesnt really matter in all honesty. You can either leave it on or remove it.
