Hey guys!

 

I've been seriously looking into the Rosewill RSV-L4411 server case as it's EVERYTHING I need in terms of size and drive storage. NEWEGG PAGE LOCATED HERE.

 

The bad thing is that it only suports up to an E-ATX board 12" x 13". The MoBo I want to use with it, the MSI Big Bang-XPower II NEWEGG PAGE LOCATED HERE, is an XL-ATX board at 10.39" x 13.58".

 

Would I have SERIOUS compatibility issues, or do you think I'll be fine?

 

If I'll have serious complications getting it to fit, is there another 4U rack mount server chasis that you can recommend that is almost spec-to-spec and can fit the board I want?

I don't think the motherboard will fit inside that chassis.

Or you could go with a different board.

Yes, there are many good ATX X79 boards out there, most of them from Asus.
