Default ATX vs. Micro ATX

I have an ATX case, and I saw this mobo on new egg thats cheap. I wanted to buy it, but I saw the specs and it said that it is a micro ATX. Will that still fit in my ATX case? I've never herd or seen any micro ATX cases before.

Physical Spec
Form Factor Micro ATX
Dimensions 9.6" x 9.6"

Are the specs.

Yes Motherboards and cases are accustom to MicroATX alot smaller, well not alot but smaller than normal ATX cases. That MicroATX motherboard should fit into your ATX case.

mATX cases only have 2 cd rom slots and one floppy slot.

I suggest double-checking your ATX case to make sure it will fit. If you can't tell, check the case manual or contact your case manufacturer.

I love Shuttles. They're a bit limiting, but make up for it with size and style.
