Dell dim.8400 mother board upgrade

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I want to upgrade the mobo in my dim.8400 but I can't figure out the form factor.
Any body know what it is? Or any recomendations on a mobo.

I would just get a new Case + Powersupply + Mobo its probably not ATX and might be a proprietary PSU. I haven't had to deal with a Dell for a while but my sisters old one is all special form factor

Any reason you want to upgrade the motherboard and nothing else?

Probably to oc. But as said above just build a new one, case, mobo, psu, ram, cpu, and use the drives out of the dell.
