The SilverStone FT03 that the DigitalStorm Enix is crammed inside is 11.18" x 9.25" x 19.17", limiting you to mATX and mITX boards though allowing the use of a full sized PSU. DigitalStorm ran with that and shoved a SilverStone 1000W PSU inside, neccesary due to their other hardware which includes an i7 2600K overclocked to 4.7GHz, a pair of GTX 580s and 8GB of DDR3-1600. It will probably come as no surprise that a Corsair H70 cools the CPUs, though the NVIDIA card's heatsinks have been left alone. AnandTech saw high temperatures from those cards, well within the limit of the silicon and not terrible unexpected; they were more concerned with the VCore spike during boot. Thankfully the warranties from boutique shops cover their own overclocks.
"Just recently we had a chance to lay hands on SilverStone's FT03 enclosure, and it was impressive enough to earn a Bronze Editors' Choice award. It wasn't the quietest case we've ever reviewed, but it had strong thermal qualities and a slick-looking design. Now DigitalStorm has taken SilverStone's eye-catching little number, custom-painted the grills, and turned it into a double-shoebox-sized monster. The Enix we're looking at today boasts the highest overclock on an Intel Core i7-2600K we've yet seen and pairs it with not one but two EVGA GeForce GTX 580's."
