    I'm trying to replace the MOBO on some IBM 300GL's mini-towers and desktops.
    I tried a 300GL mini-tower (6277-35U) with an standard ATX and it wouldn't fit, too many PCI slots.
    I haven't tried the desktops yet.
    Does anybody know what will fit? Did IBM make the MOBO's proprietary?

    TIA

    Almost surely . . .

    It might be a M-ATX ( Micro ) but then it likely has a proprietary power supply and case connections . .

    Does IBM use proprietary conections, like Dell does with their power supplies?
    In that case, I would need a new power supply and MOBO. Would everything line up to mini atx standards? It is sounding like it is best to give the thing away to a school or church.
