AFAIK, the CEB uses the same mounting holes as E-ATX, so oversize cases should work:
- Corsair Obsidian 750D
- Nanoxia DS6
- or, if you prefer a server chasis, Intel® Server Chassis SC5650

Please post your requirements so we can narrow down the options.

HTH,
Dan

HI Dan

would a Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced work?

I would like to build 4 SLI-Graphic cards and room for liquid cooling.


Thank you for your time.

Looks like the MB should fit, but will probably go a bit over the cable holes near the hdd cage.
Have no idea what cooling solution you would employ for 4 GTX, but if you need more that a single 240mm radiator I don't think you can fit it in that case.

FWIW, I'm partial to Corsair cases when it comes to ease of assembly (although for my personal system I use an Antec P180 :)

The Cooler Master Cosmos II specifically lists CEB support.    It looks like a very nice case, with plenty of depth for your video cards -- in fact it specifically notes that it's designed to support 4-way SLI.
