ATX MB in mATX case?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I want this case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...scrollFullInfo

And I want to fit an ATX MB into it.

Has anyone done this before? It looks to me like the biggest obstacle would be the PSU getting in the way.

If you have done or tried this please let me know so I don't waste my money... But if there is a possibility of it working, than I am game for trying it out.

This is the MB going into it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813157176R

You'd be better off getting an ATX case for an ATX motherboard. There are some small form factor ATX cases though that Lian Li has.

Your motherboard will probably be as tall as the mATX case, trust me. They won't fit properly at all.
