Exclamation Find me a BTX Case. Rep +

I need a btx case. Needs to fit a 12.80 x 10.5 motherboard Intel D955xcs, the mobo is geniune intel, make sure that the case does not use proprietary front panel connectors.

Ill give anyone who finds me a case rep and ill love you unconditionally forever.. xD


my budget is $100 or less


EDIT: would this work? BTX CASE

My board has 7 add in card connectors (pci).. its a huge board i dont think any btx case supports it, why would intel sell this?

newegg sells two, plus some ATX ones with BTX upgrade kits, but they're over $100.

psshhh, cases are so generic

why don't you build a computer in a box
or a crt monitor (that would be so amazing, pop out the glass screen and replace with an lcd and build a computer behind it)

or a tire?

or a mini fridge <- =O

that would be cool. dude you should build a computer in an mini fridge

It'll be easy to open

I, myself, would mod/make a case for it to fit.

@ Dude: You pick out some expensive motherboards.. i aint rich xD

@ nevermind: even if i modded my case, the dells front panel uses a properatary ide connector for the power button. And no btx case on the internetz will support a 13 inch motherboard (i havent seen an atx mobo as big as this board, 7 pci slots jesus christ. i cant believe i bought it)

so basically im out $35 and i have to spend $150 just to upgrade a motherboard

I'll take that motherboard off your hands for you after I get my paypal account un-limited.

And as for the ribbon cable connection for the front pannel, there's nothing that a bit of soldering wouldn't take care of.

My choices, with the right combination, are well within your $150 budget. I just wanted to give you more than one option.
