I want to have the x820 board and metal case. I also want to use this X730 board for the safe shutdown, is it going to fit in the x820 metal case? How should I connect the x820 board to the x730?

Hello sir, The X730 board is not suggested to use with X820 board. As it is hard to solve the power problem, and also it is not suitable to install in X820 case, Best regards,
