    Default Uhh Ohh this guy needs advice again lol

    So I have the Thermaltake chaser mk-1 (unfortunatley) but Im getting a gigabyte G1 Sniper 3 (E-ATX) and my case only calls for atx! But from what Im reading from some say itll work and some say it wont! Would anybody know for sure? I already ordered this board only because of the dual 16x pcie slots and the fact I can run trifire when I need to lol... I tape measured the standoffs and I do have alot more room than what the case specs say! Hell I could fit this mobo in their with no issues of hitting or interfering with anything but I dont get y the specs say what they do! Can anybody help?

    Thanks and you all are awesome

    Pics of the case would be nice.
    Standard ATX is only support up to 7 PCI slots, EATX is 10. Your plan is doing multiple GPU then you will have some issues. Three Vids take up to 6 slots and I don't know if you use Wi-fi or sound card ?

    You get the idea.

    it's not about the width of the mobo, it's the height, it will be to close or touch the PSU.

    Like I said if you only use 3 dual-slot video cards on PCI-1, 2 and 3 then you will be ok.
    You can't use any other expanding PCI card when you doing tri crossfire.

    If ~two~ Crossfired 7970s don't run anything you throw at them without any problems, then something is wrong. IMO,......TRI-SLI and TRI-Crossfire just gives you bragging rights.
    The real advantage of three is slight, compared to two.
