    Newegg dumps stuff on ebay that would take larger boards pretty cheap.

    I didn't buy it for that board I just bought it because it was cheap. I'll find something in my stash that will fit.
    BTW, Walmart has restocked.

    Every time I buy a case as a spare I end up putting a computer in it.

    I got an email today that they have certain CPU's to be had. Don't know what or which as I'm not in the hunt anymore.

    That's the hazard. I posted as that case seems to fill an immediate need. But ... the Asus Easentio micro tower doesn't allow me to secure the P4 era p/s. None of the screw holes align. I may have the same issue with the Rosewill. The Foxconn Mobo only has USB 1.1 iinm. I am gratified the Mobo seems to work well though. I installed RHEL 3 AS with no issues ... except not having enough ram for it to boot!! I'll find a way to get all this crap running on modern h/w. Just want it running for now.

    LOL, yep this. I purchased four of these cases last week. They have arrived. Already have four motherboards as candidates for the cases.

    Well mine came Friday. Whichever idiot preassembled it crushed the front fan connector underneath the fan. My io plate doesn't fit the Mobo properly (not case's fault). And as I suspected the p/s is impossible to secure, again not a problem with the case but on account of it being a very old design I guess. Power switch is very responsive though. Mobo would usually take several hits to start up.
