That's not entirely true.. the Thermaltake Eureka home server case (150 bux or so) will support that board no problem. I 'had' 6 inches behind the video cards with a normal full sized mobo installed.

Sorry friend, I think you're thinking of SSI CEB, which does fit in the case as you can see here : Techgage Image - Thermaltake Eureka

However, these motherboards are SSI MEB, and are a full 4 inches taller Above the IO panel. As you can see from above image, there is no space about the IO panel because the PSU resides there. Nice try though! And a good find for all the e-atx/ceb users out there.

here we go


I have this case, collecting dust under my bench in my garage, I take all the measurement, and the board of CM and DT fit right inside. I don't think I will ever do a such project So if someone need it for build a quad core I will more than happy to give it to him. Anyway he will finish with more dust. And for the interested one. you can fit 5 or 6 4x120 rad in the drive section, the case is split in half in the middle. And have a look at the kind of PSU ( not include ) you can throw at the bottom , the mother tray is fully removable, you just turn the handle 90 degree and pull it , quite useful. You can pass on with car on the motherboard tray. As server case it's a dinosaur, so it ill fit well with you CM

This case is very strong how many time I climb on it to reach thing on higher shelf, and I'm not quite a light weight guy , but it's at a cost. if you not MarkOne , you need 2 guy to put it on the bench full loaded

Ah right... i was wondering after I posted that if it would fit. It is a monster isn't it! It's a big bloody case though with a bit of modding it might fit?

You're probably right on that one. My guess is that most EATX cases with a top-mounted PSU tray could be modded to accommodate a SSI-MEB mobo by transplanting the PSU into the 5 1/4 IN bays.

I can tell you... there is a TON of room up there. With out a rom drive in there you could possibly get 2-3 PSU's back to back in there. Where do you live I have one collecting dust here at the moment.

How about going back OT? Surely you can talk about overpriced outdated processors in PM.

This is a build log.
