Question case question...

I was going to get the Antec p182 case for the Asus maximus extreme but noticed it wouldnt fit cause the Maximus Extreme is 12" x 10.6" and it says it only fits 12" x 9.6". So I had another few cases I like in mind but they are more expensive and large.

Whats the performance of the P5E3 (deluxe or premium) compared to the maxumus extreme? If they're comparable then I could go with the p182 case and I would save some money overall. I do plan on overclocking. I'm not gonna choose a case over a mobo so in the end if I should get the Max extreme then I will just get a bigger case and It would probably fit stuff better anyway. Any info or suggestions would be helpful since I don't have much experience with this.
Thanks!

The Maximus should fit in the p182 no problem.

By looking at the size of the case and mobo, I don't think that mobo would fit in the p182. The case specs specifically state that it has to be 12 x 9.6 and the board is 12 x 10.6

I think that'll be a no-go
