SSI EBB form vs Extended ATX


D

Dave (from the UK)

I'm looking at buying a Tyan motherboard (K8WE S2895)

http://www.tyan.com/products/html/thunderk8we.html

but the form factor is described as

* SSI EEB v3.5 footprint (12"x13"; 304.8x330.2mm)

• EPS12V/SSI 3.51 Workstation (24 + 8) power
connectors (Split Plane design recommended)

That size, 12" x 13" is common on extended ATX motherboard. Will a case for an
extended ATX motherboard take a SSI EEB v3.5 footprint motherboard?

I see quite a few cases for SSI EEB v3, but not 3.5.

The Tyan web site has a list of reccomended bits for the motherboard
http://www.tyan.com/support/html/r_s2895.html
and one of the cases is the Silverstone TJ-03

A look on the Silverstone site:

http://www.silverstonetek.com/products-tj03.htm

describes that as taking Extended ATX, ATX and Micro ATX motherboards, with no
mention of SSI EEB v3.5.

I was semi tempted by the Antec Titan 550 case

but that is extended ATX, with no mention of SSI EEB either.

Yes, it will. We have built systems with that motherboard and
it uses any standard extended ATX case.
