Will this FM2 motherboard fit inside this case?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I purchased the following, without really doing enough research on sizing. It has now occurred to me, will this motherboard fit?
FM2-A75MA-E35

Inside the following case?

APEX MI-008

Thanks,

Hello,

It should since there both mini's.... I don't know about the atx vs itx ...if that changes the pinhole configurations...but I don't think it would.

No.

The motherboard is M-ATX, the case is ITX.

It's m-itx , isn't it?

Not without modding, the board you linked is the next "popular" size up.



Left of middle is your motherboard size, middle is the size the case supports.

unfortunately the answer is no the mini-ITX case will only fit a board that is m-ITX in size, specifically 6.7 by 6.7 inches M-atx board, like the one you selected is 9.7 x 9.7 inches. sorry.

Yes, but as Paradigm's picture shows, there's not really a "standard" ITX like there is ATX, so I just ignore the M. tongue.gif

Regardless, nothing ATX will fit in anything designed for ITX.

The board and components could feasibly fit in the case depending on what you're trying to cram in there, it's just you won't have the correct stand-offs.

Hey thanks for the info. I found a Apex DM-387 case for the same price (plus the cost of shipping + return shipping on the mITX case) but oh well, I can live with that. smile.gif
I think in the end the mATX HTPC case will be a better choice anyways. I figured that's a better purchase than spending $25 more on a smaller motherboard without DVI output. (The MSI mITX motherboards are $85, and the MSI mATX motherboards are $60)
Plus perhaps some more breathing room too?
