which case for KGPE-D16?
 
my main machine (core2duo) is dying a slow death

picked up the parts for a dual g34 build using asus KGPE-D16

not sure what is a good case (small would be nice, since I already have two supermicro 4U under my desk) that would give me at least 4 3.5" (2xssd, 2xsata) and 1 5.25" (dvd-r)

thanks

Its an Extended ATX motherboard so don't expect to get that small of a case.

My Eatx case is a stacker 832 which has a little overbuild but not much. And its still huge.

hehe I am still looking for a case for mine, I ended up just using an Old case and using side cutters and a hand drill hacking up the case to get the board to fit hehe. but depending on a few things like which video card ,cpu coolers you are going to be using has allot to do with which case, I am looking for a server style case like a 4U, I think would just be able to fit my video card and NH-U9DO cpu coolers

These are server board, which need a lot of airflow - otherwise, they will overheat. Desktop / gaming cases barely give the CFMs that server cases provide. I'm using a 932 Advanced with dual Scythe 38mm upfront running full bore, and that works. But forget about having a quiet rig...
