microATX vs ATX

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hey everyone I was just wondering what exactly is the difference between microATX and ATX besides size. I was looking at these 2 mobos at the same price.

You asked two different questions...
ATX and mATX differ in size and expansion slots There are also generally features and overclocking ability (fewer VRMs) differences as well.

The difference in those boards are relatively obvious... just go through their feature list. Their overclock ability should be about the same.
