Re: best cpu for the mobo
Stock as in like from a manufacturer? i.e. HP, Dell, etc? Most of those types of towers ONLY support mATX and NOT ATX. Therefore, they cause problems when you want to upgrade to a MB that's ATX, as the case is not big enough to support it. It's been a while since I've worked with a manufacturer case that had an ATX MB installed, so I can't speak as to whether it supported mATX (the size isn't the problem, it's just whether or not the holes are there I believe).
