Default Fractal R4 and E-ATX boards

Does it fit? Or is it a tight squeeze?

EATX not officially listed compatible so no it will almost certainly not fit.

Why do you have an EATX board anyway?

I have an ATX board because ATX boards are good bang for buck and fully compatible with regular cases. Are EATX boards good bang for buck and fully compatible with regular cases?

With a drill, bit and a perhaps a Dremel, you can shoehorn an EATX into most any ATX box. But why? Seems that the world is going mATX, not the other way.
