Is my board a micro ATX? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Unless it's some special propietary board out of a pre-built system. They do weird things there.

Another way to tell is to measure the dimensions. Micro's are usually about 10"x10" where as full ATX are usually closer to 12"x10". Or count the number of hold down screws. Micro's are usually 8 and ATX are 9.

Again, this may not hold true for pre-built systems.

I can't find a listing for that board anywhere, where did you get it?

microATX (also known as µATX) form factor is a small motherboard size of 9.6" x 9.6" (244 mm x 244 mm). Compared to full ATX, microATX has reduced the amount of I/O slots but a smaller power supply can be used.

Yeah, that's what I said.....about 10"x10"

I've seen some as small as 9.6"x8" too.

Good articles though.
