I want to build a new system and from the start I only knew what the case should be: Corsair 500R. Now that i decided on the motherboard as well there's a small problem. The motherboard is an E-ATX factor: Maximus V Formula(12 inch x 10.1 inch ( 30.5 cm x 25.7 cm )).
What's confusing is that the ATX size is 30.5 × 24.4 so there's just that centimeter that could impact the I/O panel.
Did anyone fit a board of that size in the 500R? Any change this could work?

The Corsair 500R specs say it supports only ATX, mATX, not E-ATX.
This can work only two ways, either you keep the mobo and change the chasis, or you use an ATX.
I know what it says. I just want to know if someone pulled this off or something similar.
The E-ATX specs are actually way higher than what Maximux has. The board will surely fit, the problem being with the panel.
Thing is, that set-up is with the 400R. The 500R has a larger mobo "hole" I think. Anand had a setup with a ATX board and there's more room left than on the 400. I'm thinking that with 90 degrees SATA cables that side won't be a problem.
