Will a CM Storm Trooper support eatx?

My friend is using his old CM Storm Trooper in a new x99 build. The board can support xl-Atx, so why can't it support eatx

though not officially listed in the specs, the case hold EATX motherboards.

XL ATX: Just roughly as wide as a ATX motherboard, but much more longer.

EATX: Just about the same in length as an ATX motherboard, but much more wider.

Since the EATX mobo is wider, the CM Storm Trooper cannot support the wider mobo. It can however, support the longer XL ATX.

Would there be anyway to jury rig it on to there? He really likes the case but still needs a eatx mobo

That's a wonderful case, but he already has the storm trooper in his current build and likes it too much to get rid of it. Do you know of anybody jury rigging a eatx motherboard with, say, zip ties?
