Most likely a STUPID question.. - Page 3

post #21 of 28
You're right to ask. I've seen many Gateways and other pre-builts that use BTX form factor motherboards, meaning they won't work in 90% of the enthusiast cases out there. As the others have mentioned, your's will work peachy.

i know with some dells that they have a little board that the front panel connect to then it connects to the motherboard, that requires a special properity cord to do so. aslong as your computer is not like this it should work.

btw, you might find that the standoffs might be in a different location depending upon if they used a board specifically designed for them or not.

Also, it was mentioned already, but if you go with a bigger case, you might find that the PSU leads might not reach everything.
