I’m planning on moving the 9020 into a different case.
I think that mobo should fit in any standard mATX case. Doesn't need a thermal sensor either, it's built into the board. That SFF is really cramped for graphics cards so it sounds like a good idea. Let me know if you post that case mod.

it’s to replace the MSI RX 560, maybe it’s a good time to sell
Look at these RX 560 prices on Ebay. This is what an RX 580 used to sell for. You could easily sell yours for over $100.

I paid $119 from Newegg last October, but it was refurbished!. I should at least get my money back!, I'll wait for the new card and sell the AERO on Ebay. Looking at vintage Apple cases for the 9020, maybe an Apple PowerPC 7500, like this one. The PCI slots look tall enough for a full height graphics card.

I loved the PowerMac 7500! I had one of these when they were still being sold new.

I just checked RX 560 prices in the US on eBay. Prices start at approx $70-75 for used examples. That's about how much I paid for my used RX 560 back in January 2019.

I owned one of these too!, wasn’t there an 8000 series as well?. I bought mine from an online Mac reseller beginning O and ending with C!. It had 6 PCI slots, never filled them all though. I think this case would be good for the 9020. Not cheap!, some of the rarest, like a working 20th anniversary are selling for thousands!.

I think there was an 8100 and an 8500. I think the 8100 was still on NuBus. Lol. Great memories...

I bought an used HD 7850 2G (slightly weaker than RX 560) for... 30 USD. I don’t understand why RX 560 could be that expensive.

Craighazan has the 4GB version of the MSI so he can get at least $100 for it via buy it now. Those 2GB versions aren't as good for games because they run out of Vram, so they sell for about 25 dollars less. The XFX 4GB versions might sell for less than MSI but aren't great for hackintoshing. Not everyone is comfortable with BIOS flashing their card.

Here's the list of MSI RX 560 4GB variants: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fr...+RX+560+AERO+ITX+4G&_sacat=0&LH_BIN=1&_sop=15
