I just bought a Socket 775 Motherboard and CPU for my computer for an upgrade. I already know everything I need to buy, but can a Socket 775 fit into a Socket 478 case? I didn't know if Case size made a difference....does it?

well I duno..I found a site that lists cases by sockets and ATX/micro ATX alike. The case itself is microATX, and so is the new motherboard I bought.

Case size has nothing to do with socket , more to do with the motherboard choice.My case had a socket 370 cpu in it (compaq 5bw137 motherboard) b before it had the socket 775 cpu. hmm posted to slow :)Just a little hint I hope you have a case with good ventilation.The socket T 775 cpu's run a little on the hot side :eek:
