I don't believe you can get it to fit into that case.

I believe you have to hack to mid-plate. or is it worth it when you're just using a single card?

The 4-Way is an XL-ATX and will only fit in these cases (without any modding that is):
Lian Li PC-P80
Lian Li PC-P80R
HEC 98 98R9BB
Thermaltake Xaser VI VG4000SNA
Thermaltake Xaser VI VG4000BWS
Thermaltake Xaser VI VG4000BNS
Thermaltake Xaser VI VG4000BNSB
Thermaltake ArmorPlus VH6000BWS
Xigmatek CPC-T75UB-U01
Cooler Master HAF X
And of course the MM Ascension or Pinnacle with the 10 PCI Slot mobo tray.

For the cost, I went with the HAF X and it does the job nicely, have a look at the KKC Black Widow worklog and you'll see how much room it has.

The 4 way will fit, you just can't use the last two slots.

yeah, but if you already have that board and you want that case, a drill, riveter and 20 minutes of your time will make it fit

Allready started on the case, i have both hdd bays out now, should be done by monday with u-channel molding to help tidy it up aswell
Then i just got to wait for this motherboard to come through the post

"I am in love with this case, and it was really hard for me to make this decision to tear it apart"

I'll stick a few pics up once i have the 4-way inside.
