    I'm upgrading my pc - mobo, cpu, case. One mobo I'm interested in is 30.5cm x 24.4cm and the other is 30.5cm x 19cm. What difference, if any, is there between the two sizes, particularly relative to a full tower case.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    As long as it is a true atx case and the boards are atx, you should have no problem. If you are using a case from a previous motherboard and a company is such as Gateway or Compaq you may run into a problem as some of their cases though said to be true atx are not really in that the standoffs for the mothrboard may not line up with a true atx board.

    One thing you might be aware of, and I ran into this problem in one case, the cpu with the fan (P4) sat too close to the power supply, and the power supply could not be moved.
