Wide Case Needed

Need a "Fat Case" to fit a Mother Board with a Cool Master 212 EVO on a chip my mother board now is on now.
uATX Form Factor
9.6 inch x 9.6 inch ( 24.4 cm x24.4 cm )
But with my Cool Master 212 I have to leave the side panel off to fit the fan on.Will be getting a new MOBO with DDR3 but would like to still use my cpu fan with it.


Additional Comment:

So I just check my case and it's just under 7 1/4 inches Wide so I guess I need to look for a case 7 1/2 inches wide or more , prefer 8 inches to fit a mother board and cool master 212 EVO.

I have that one with a 212 EVO in it. It's a great case, lots of room.

edit, I actually have the one with the window, same case otherwise.

I guess I'm looking for a case that is over 7.55" and over wide . I would prefer something like over 8" for ATX,mATX
So far I got my eye on is :

8"

The right side is a separate section for PSU, 5.25" drives, and 5 spots for SSDs/2.5" drives. The Section with the MoBo is only 8" from tray to window. Still a roomy case, which is very good looking. I have the black version.

Ok fine
It's still big enough for OP's needs.
Cases are such a personal preference, plus no budget was mentioned.
I really like that Corsair, but I can't justify getting rid of my Fractal.

The only thing I wish it had 3 bay's in the front and at least 1 2.0 usb in the front

Have two rigs. Only down side of the air450 is only having the one filter built in. I still need to make some for the bottom and the PSU inlet, lots of dust.


I have not looked at cases in a while so I can't think of too many that are as wide as you need. That fractal looks pretty stout. Keep in mind a lot of cases just don't have a lot of 5.25 bays anymore, since physical media is not as big a necessity as it used to be.

A while back I had the same issue with liquid cooling. Where to put a bunch of rads and have some space left.

Came across a SilverStone TJ07 case that's just plain massive. Wide Deep and tall. Room for two power supplies and the motherboard tray slides out making installation super easy.

The only draw back is the 300-500 dollar price tag.

I just place my order for my new case Phanteks “ Enthoo Pro Series “
This will suit me just find , I like the cable management the most and the Wide size of 9.25".
So now I have is:
Cool Master 212 EVO
MSI R9 280x
EVGA Super Nova 850w
G.Skill Sniper 16GB 1866 CL9 ram
I am still debating on M5A99FX Pro 2.0 or a Sabartooth R2.0 Motherboard.

I love my 540, very roomy. I love it so much one of these days I am going to get some motivation to actually gut the HTPC and move my rig into that case.

I keep looking at those at Microcenter when I go. I haven't been able to justify replacing my Fractal.....yet.
