Alright so there is this case i'm going to get, no question about it. There was a Tyan server board I was looking at but the case only supports 12x9.6 and the motherboard is 13x12, i'm thinking if I line the motherboard as if it were a regular 12x9.6 board and drill the extra mount points in that the board should fit fine.

I know that the motherboards come with their own rear I/O panel so it shouldn't be a problem there. Is there anything else you guys could see me running into trouble with?

My goal plain and simple is to get the board in the case nice and stable. I'm not against cutting bays or anything else that would get in the way of fitment.

Any insight is appreciated.

That extra width can sometimes be delt with, but that extra inch in height is likely have the power supply in the way.

You have any photos of the case & board ?

The only thing I can see getting in the way is the memory riser card.

-edit-
I'm going to try and find a better picture of the case because it's layout is weird

Looks like you've got the extra inch in height covered by a longshot.

Also looks like cable connectors are the only thing that will be in the back, you might be able to relocate the power supply that looks like it will be in the way of the riser to the back, mounted in that cage if the case is deep enough.

It's tough to say, I think there's definately a chance it could be made to work so far.
