XL-ATX is taller than ATX, EATX is wider. You will need a case that has at least 9 expansion slots. Ones with 8 (pretty common) MAY work, but only if there is additional space below that last slot. That MB is 5 mm longer than an 8 slot setup.

Some options:
Corsair 750D, 760T/780T
Rosewill Thor V2
Phanteks Enthoo Elite

I have the Rosewill Thor V2 and it works well for what it is. Definitely the cheapest option out of those listed above.

This is what i have currently but will be selling it as its too tall for me. caselabs is nice but well worth it if you need space and want a long term case, its sad to see them go out.

Thermaltake Core W100 fits them too but not sure about how nice they are and they are a bit pricey.

Never heard of it but just found Anidees Crystal XL fits them too as well as HPTX the old enormous SR-2 format lol.

well i got it down to 2 that i like but both have problems but this will be air cooled until i can get a custom loop done for a 3970x



what i dont like is the view 91 has no way to hide the cables and has 2 rad mounts on the right hand side while makes no sense to me but not much to hide any cable routing other than that.

the 1000d is £100 more expensive has better cable management but comes with no fans and 1 controller.

rgb is not going to happen !
