XWORKS X32 Compatiblity Check List
Refer to the XWORKS X32 compatibility information for motherboard, graphics card, power supply, CPU and GPU cooler, storage devices, cable length, and PCIe riser to avoid last-minute surprises and get the best out of your X32 Case.
In general any mini-ITX form factor motherboard is supported. This also includes any type of I/O shield design respecting the Mini-ITX format.
There is no known incompatibility with pre-attached I/O shield or VRM extensions/coolers.
Some motherboard front-panel header and power-button pin-out may require an extension (not included). On the picture below, front-panel pin-out located in the red area can be reached with an extension.
Below you can find a non-exhaustive list of compatible motherboards as tested by the community. We will regularly update this list based on customer and community feedback:

Special Form Factors
Mini-DTX motherboards such as the ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Impact can be installed if the handle/protection bar is removed and replaced by 2x M4 nut. Do note that this will block the access to the power button.

With GPU length <18cm:
- ATX 24 pin: 15cm
- CPU 4 or 4+4 pin: 25cm
- GPU 6+2 pin: 26cm
- Dual HDD power: 25cm+12cm
- HDD data: >20cm, HDD end must be straight, the other end can be 90 deg
- 25-29cm: GPU 6+2 pin 37cm

Graphics Card Compatibility
No known compatibility challenges. We suggest using a graphic card smaller than 17.5cm in length simply for aesthetics.
PCI-Express Riser CompatibilityThe only recommended model is the one provided with the case (ADT R33UF-TU). The provided riser supports up to PCI-Express 3.0.
