    I have managed to purchase this SuperChassis 812i-400 off ebay brand new with rails for £26!!!!! But at the moment im having problems with finding compatible motherboards. According to supermicro it only supports the following:

    Compatible with P4DPR-xxx & X5DPR-xxx motherboards ONLY

    I cant find either on eBay the only ones are either from the US or Australia. Is there anyway i can fit a different motherboard in it?

    Only if the screw holes that are used for mounting the motherboard to the chassis line up. That's likely why they say it's compatible with only those two models.

    Perhaps the lack of compatible motherboards is why you got the case for such a low price.
