BTW, what isn't fitting? Both the SR-2 and HAF X support the EATX format.

Never mind, see below, I understand the width issue.

What GPUs do have in mind? You can go 4-way, but need to have the PSU and cooling to support.

You'd be better off selling the HAF X case on eBay or similar, and buying a case that dosn't require any modification, since price obviously isn't too much of a concern.

(SR-2 / 4 Way Crossfire)

Not an expert on these sized cases - but something along these lines;

From The Overclockers' Club website:

HAF X will not support EVGA Classified SR-2 because of non-standard width.

That being said, I agree with Nerdbox87, you should sell/return the HAF X and get a case that can handle the SR-2.

Also, what PSU are you planning on installing?

BTW, check out this website. These guys build the case that was used for the MaximumPC Dream Machine 2010 that used your mobo. Info can be found here:

There may be, but finding one "down under" may be a challenge. Good luck!

Stay dry with your head above water! Hard to imagine the scale of flooding you guys are seeing.

Be well.

Actually listened to a news report on Tawoomba while I was driving into my office, in teh snow, this morning. I grew up in an area of the US where flooding like Australia is fairly common (not on the same scale) so I am painfully aware of the damage that can be generated.

Hopefully, on your case mod, the size difference between what your mobo requires vice what the case has is small enough to not require a major change. Seems to be a width issue more than anything else. Do you have an idea of how much space your modder will have to "create"?
