    I think you are getting a bit confused.... PIV is an Intel Pentium IV motherboard which refers to the type of processor you can install and not the motherboard size...

    For extended ATX cases, try looking for a full size to mid-size case... Or server cases....

    Chenbro SR10769-BK supports extended ATX and it is not too costly... Never tried this case before...

    I found the site below helpful.... Select computer case and do a search within this group for extended atx...
