Default Does this fit :O ???? *Shocked*

Hi forumers,

Since I have been waiting for my order, I constantly look at the parts to keep my excitement up lol.. Anyway, I was reading more into the case and mobo and noticed the size in the specifications are very very weird...


So I was wondering, would this mobo fit in this case? Or do I have to exchange the case for another? I love this case


MOBO:

http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/...ame=GA-945P-S3

Case:

http://www.thermaltake.com/product/C.../vb1000bws.asp


It says that it supports Micro ATX (9.6x9.6) And ATX (12.9x9.6), The mobo page says the size is 30x19 :O ....


Is there something Im missing or anything :S Thats one huge mobo

The case looks like a decent size and the motherboard looks reasonably normal I dont see why it shouldnt fit, but the size its telling you is abit of a worry! Maybe just wait till the motherboard comes, give it a tester if it doesnt fit, just exchange it then you havent lost anything

well I read on another page... ATX mobo is 30cmx19... The case supports ATX (12x9.6) That 12x 9.6 is in inches.. which is 30x19... are all ATX the same size? and mATX same?

Like cases support 9.6x9.6 (matx) and 12.9x9.6 (ATX), I think thats just the standard size of them? Can anyone confirm this please.. Im gonna have a heart attack lol. If I cant get that case. Im not getting a computer! (Unless ofcourse I find a better case for the same price)

One is in inches and the other is in cm. And yes they are all the same, ATX etc are all a set standard, so it will fit
