  1. I found a case i like but it say's ATX(10" x 12") which standard if i remember right .So does this mean a micro won't work in it at all?It doesn't say anything about a micro Atx .

    Look at the number of card slots on the back of the case. If there is only 4 card slots it is a micro ATX. If there is 7 card slots it is a standard ATX. A standard ATX motherboards will not fit a micro ATX case. However a micro ATX motherboard will work in a standard ATX case.
