    Are there any special chasis requirenments for assembling a server?


      I am building a new server to and have a simple question about hardware.  Will I need a special case for a server motherboard?  The motherboards I am currently looking is an Intel S5520HC.  I understand I will need a case that accommodates E-ATX boards, but are there any other requirements?   I was sure it would work, but then I saw that Intel's site only names a couple cases that are compatible with their board.  Will a case such as a Zalman GS1000-SE work for this board?  Also, will a standard ATX power supply work (with adequate power and an extra 8-pin CPU adapter of course).
