One reviewer on newegg said that the Asus Rampage II Extreme motherboard was slightly bigger than standard ATX. If that is the case how would you fit in in a case, drill your own holes :-O? Also, I see that this Asus board also has a JMicron controller on it. I am under the impression that the JMicron SATA/PATA controller on my Asus P5B Deluxe Wifi-AP is a piece of junk and I was wondering what the quality of this JMicron controller was and JMicron in general. I know that lots of people had DVD burning issues because of the JMicron on mine. I had to buy a SATA burner (as opposed to my IDE) to get it to work correctly.

Although the size of the board is larger than most, the holes for the motherboard is still aligned for standard ATX. Why are you worried about Jmicron Controller if you said you already bought a sata burner?

its like half an inch bigger than a standard ATX. I didnt have any CD burning issues with my RIIE. Havent tried DVD yet. Needed to put cables in an earlier stage than usual when building in order to insert them into the motherboard once it was screwed into place on the case.

They list the form factor size so people can check whether their case is big enough to comfortably house the motherboard.
