Are there 3rd-party cases for the new Epyc TYAN S8026GM2NRE w/ Oculink?

Hi,

I'm interested in getting a Tyan S8026GM2NRE motherboard but I'd prefer to put it in a 3rd-party case because 2U tends to have too many cooling issues in my environment (would like a big full-atx case to put it in) but it has PCI risers instead of PCI slots

Has anyone heard of a 3rd-party case to put them in, or a way to make them work in other cases, or would I just be relegated to using the Tyan case?

Thanks!

Resurrecting old thread because I have the same question. :)

Here's are some pictures of the Tyan chassis (that are impossible to find so far):

Edit: sales rep replied, "Tyan does not sell chassis standalone." So what chassis do people put these boards in?

Fortunately, the S8026 and similar are a standard EATX/SSI-EEB form factor. It just doesn't seem like PCIe risers will line up in many chassis, and using the mezzanine will probably require some cutting and grinding. That and maybe one will need to 3D print an I/O shield.

fits only the board is easy. what about the 2x x24 riser slots ?
TBD. I'm waiting on a quote for risers. Probably need either riser or someway of using mezzanine. Otherwise it's sort of a moot point to put a bunch of fast NVMe behind two GbE ports.

Ehhh... could be worse. So $45 for 1U riser for that In-Win chassis.
