Will the Intel DZ87KLT-75K Motherboard fit into the Corsair CC-9011017-WW Case? To me it seems by reading the documentation that the motherboard is too big, but I'm not sure as I have no experience with this and I was told that all ATX motehrboards are compatible with all ATX cases.

Exactly which documentation makes you think it won't fit? –  Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Oct 7 '13 at 19:03
    
@techie007 the PDF provided with the motherboard, and the actual size of the case. –  Jeroen Bollen Oct 7 '13 at 19:07
    
@techie007 Sorry derped, I forgot I should translate the width into height as it gets mounted on it's side... –  Jeroen Bollen Oct 7 '13 at 19:12
    
Take the measurement of the motherboard and compare them to the motherboard dimision specifications of the case itself. –  Ramhound Oct 7 '13 at 19:14
    
@Ramhound I did, but I forgot to flip the dimensions to the side. :P –  Jeroen Bollen Oct 7 '13 at 19:20

From the links you provided:

Intel DZ87KLT-75K Motherboard Form factor: ATX

Corsair CC-9011017-WW Chassis Compatibility: ATX and Micro ATX motherboards

Since they both conform to the ATX form factor, then they should be compatible.

When putting ATX boards into an ATX chassis, the only gotchas tend to be when it comes to motherboard component placement and various over-hangs within the chassis itself (like drive cages banging into full length video adapters for example).
