Default Case for H11DSI-NT motherboard

Would appreciate case recommendations for the
following motherboard -SuperMicro H11DSI-NT.
The dimensions for the motherboard are listed as 12" x 13.05" (30.5cm x 33.1cm) . The case is EATX and I was initially thinking of getting the Fractal Design Define R6 Black since it is marked as EATX compatible, however on reading the technical specs I noticed it says "eATX (up to 285mm wide)" which is smaller than this motherboard.

My System Specs


Perhaps the Thermaltake Core V71? Specs state 12" x 13", but perhaps the 13.05 is OK? You could get a firm answer by contacting Thermaltake. Full EATX cases are pricey, but this one is a but more reasonable.

Phanteks Enthoo Pro or the Fractal Design Define XL might be options, claim to support EATX, but getting the exact dimensions on supported motherboards is a bit tricky. You might have contact the case manufacturers directly to get the exact specs.

You can use this as a starting point for potential options: PCPartPicker - Full tower, EATX

Default Thanks

Thanks for the pointers! I did contact Phanteks and they said Pro / Luxe / Primo / Elite should all support this motherboard. Given the price / performance am seriously considering the Phanteks Pro.
