I am wanting a new case, but I'm not sure what to get. My current case is the NZXT H440 which is an ATX case, but my motherboard barely fits in it. I'm not sure if a different ATX case will work like this one does though because my motherboard is EATX. I saw this case at Microcenter and really liked it but am not sure if it will work. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139087&ignorebbr=1&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC-_-pla-_-Cases+(Computer+Cases+-+ATX+Form)-_-N82E16811139087&gclid=CjwKEAiA2abEBRCdx7PqqunM1CYSJABf3qvacZAPHGS1tY1NtF96uZAWfmlw5mfhpa44bLKBVBeVWhoCnPTw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

 

I am wanting something like that, but the only thing I could find was an IN WIN 909 case which was $400 and that is way out of my budget. 

I am wanting something that is tempered glass, or has a nice red/black theme. I love brushed aluminum cases. Don't want one that looks cheap. I like the NZXT H440 because it has the PSU Cover which makes cable management look a lot better. Budget is $200 MAX.

EATX is hard to shop for, most cases have a "bump" in them where the cables go through, you might be better suited going to a more common board size. It's like when you build a House, you buy furniture to fit the house, not build the house to fit the furniture.

Best TP cases are the Corsair 570X RGB and Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX TP. Neither of them have official support for EATX, though. Since EATX is a rather rough standard, you may able to fit some narrow EATX boards in there if you're lucky. As @Daniel644 said, though, most cases (including those two) have a slight ascend on the motherboard tray where the cable management grommets are located so you would probably have to install your motherboard at a slight angle (I'd be worrying about shorting stuff out on the tray if I did that).
