    Will the ASUS P9X79-E WS or P9X79 WS fit in ATX case?

    Moxtelling Level 1



      I have searched and googled for two days now and I have still not found an answer to this question.

      I am planning an upgrade of my system to be a serious workstation and have recently bought hte Fractal Design XL Black Pearl Case that supports E-ATX. I love this case and would prefer not to buy a new one, so I´m trying to find out if the ASUS P9X79 WS (that Harm and others seems to reccomend as MOBO) or maybe the  ASUS P9X79-E WS 8the one with 7 PCI-Es - Wauv..) will fit in my case? Both MOBOs are SSI CEB, but Fractal Design tells me that it might fit in the case if the mounting holes are placed equal to the ATX based MOBOs? Some say that it fits most cases with support for E-ATX (my case supports E-ATX as well), but others say that it does not fit anything but a few cases that supports SSI CEB....


      Any clues?


      Thx in advance....
