Enhanced Extended ATX cases

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So im building a cheap workstation for a friend using old server parts, and i got a pretty good offer on a dual socket motherboard. The form factor is extended enhanced atx. anyone knows any relatively cheap case that support this form factor? we could build it ourselves, but i want to compare all the options

Take a Corsair 760T from second hand and make the screw holes that miss, something like that will work.

...... That cant even hold Regular E-ATX. Op's board looks something like this

 

Image result for Enhanced Extended ATX

 

I would try to look at a used full sized ATX case like the one @Peskanova suggested. Even some "E-atx" supporting cases on the market today only support "272mm E-ATX" which isnt full ATX sized like your board is. It's misleading sadly, but it is what it is.

Thats because eeatx is not a standard , but with a drill and measuremets you can fit on big old eatx cases , there are a lot just check size , my 760t is huge I think I can throw away dvd bay and insert next to the mobo another atx xD 

 

There are cheaper and same size than a 760t

Look for old, used Workstation Cases on some Plattforms.

 

 

The Celsius M460 Case, alhough rather ugly, might be something you look for.

Though it needs some modifications:
You need to remove a Backplate and throw it away, you need to remove a plastic thingy from the fan. And you need too replace the Plastic Thingy on the Front Panel Connectors.

 

With that in mind, those are rather cheap. Though I don't know if that Board fits and if they ship to Spain.

 


The next thing are real Server/Workstation Cases like Chenbro SR103, SR107 SR105

But those aren't cheap!
