1How do I know if my case is ATX?
PC cases are often referred to by these three main characteristics, but the terms more accurately refer to the number of motherboards they can handle. ATX boards measure 12 by 9.6 inches, MicroATX up to 9.6 inches (they’re often smaller), and Mini-ITX 6.7 inches square.
Broadly speaking, a case that favors a larger board will tend to be larger than one that favors only smaller boards, but this is not universally true. Also, note that a case that supports a given motherboard size most likely supports the smaller motherboard form factors, although it’s worth checking in a case’s specs before buying.
