Rest in peace my mobo!

Locked mobo is slowly but surely dying on me. Basically rather than buying a new pc or a building a new one from scratch I'm considering just getting a new mobo. What I'm not sure on is if all mobo's are the same shape and size (so I know my new mobo would fit in my tower). Any advice appreciated. Cheers

If you have an ATX case all modern motherboards will fit it.

You just need to lnow what type of tower you have. (Apart from a few rare animals)


Micro ATX etc.. etc.
You will find this classification on most new Mobs's. The important factor is the distance between the fixing holes as you can have a centimeter or so 'overhanging'.

THe most popular tower size is and has been for some time, ATX

You also need to know what your CPU will fit also consider if the ram will fit and work on the new mobo
