  1. Hello I was wondering if anyone knew of any 939 chipset sli motherboards that are compatible with a Scorpio 668w black alluminum atx case with 12 drive bays 5 x 5.25 external drive bays, 2 x 3.5 external drive bays and 5 x 3.5 internal drive bays. also it should have 7 expansion slots and an ATX form fator of 12" x 10". Please let me know if you need any other information. And as always thank for any help.

    any motherboard that says ATX will fit in that case...the number of PCI, AGP/PCI-E slots you want all depend on you. Cases usually have a lot more expansion slots than you really need, i.e. not many home users utilize 7 hard drives. just go to www.newegg.com and put some specific search specifications, such as Form factor-ATX, and Socket Type-939 in...a list will pop up and then you can choose from there.

    If it's a atx case then any atx 939 sli motherboard should work, like these.

    The only thing you should have to worry about is your power supply connection, as most newer boards have a 24pin main connector, while older power supplys only have a 20 pin main connector. Also, make sure you have adequate 12v amperage, probably at least 25a+ for a sli rig.
