  1. I bought a couple cases for some new pc's. turns out they labeled them wrong and they are for Micro ATX not standard, ive never used micro before.

    So i can send them back or i can just get Micro mobo's instead.

    Some1 please give me the Pro's and Con's of having a Micro ATX board over having a Standard ATX board?


    I meant to put this in the Mobo forum if a mod could move it for me thanks.

    Micro ATX are ok, if you don't want to cram the case with loads of devices.
    Obviously you'd need a micro-atx board,......and smaller hands :p
    If you're running a high end cpu that kicks out heat, think about your cooling solutions as the cases aren't that big, air circulation can be more problematic than a standard ATX tower.
    I've built a few Micro's and they'r fine for 1 x hdd, 2 x opticals.
