Question Obsidian 250D - Mini DTX support?

I was wondering if there is anything preventing the use of a Mini DTX (slightly taller than ITX) sized board (like the Asus X570 Impact) in this case. Has anyone tried this?

I was wondering the same thing: I'd assume that it's compatible because there is a lot of empty space beyond the side with the PCIe slot, and the mounting holes are the same. However I asked the question to Corsair Support and they said that it's not compatible. I'm not convinced of the answer...

According to

https://www.overclock.net/forum/50-s...cie-slots.html

"Any Mini-ITX case that has two PCIe slot covers (for dual-slot GPUs) already supports Mini-DTX! The required space for the dual-slot PCIe bracket and video card guarantees space for the motherboard that will extend out under the GPU"

and the 250D does have two PCIe slot covers...

I am looking at my 250D and I measured a 4 cm distance between the edge of my mini-ITX motherboard and the edge of the PSU shroud. I don't see anything at all that would prevent the installation of a mini-DTX board, which is just 3 cm taller: it should comfortably fit with 1 cm of margin. I almost convinced myself that I can safely buy a Crosshair VIII Impact for my upgrade...
