Will a mid tower case accomodate all ATX size motherboards ? Can anyone explain which mobo size will fit each computer case size.

I have a Raidmax ATXZ1000BP casing (which I believe is a mid-tower casing--please confirm if you know) and I want to make sure it can take any regular size motherboard.

Thank You

Thank you SR-71 Blackbird. That was certainly a quick reply. Could you please expand on my question (if it is not asking too much of course)

your case is an atx case and can handle any regular atx motherboards. you may run into issues with an extend atx motherboard as they are longer.

there are around 4 different types of cases
ATX
Micro ATX
BTX
Mini ITX


ATX and BTX are almost the same, BTX just mounts the motherboard upside down. size is 12"x9.6"
Micro atx are smaller at 9.6"x9.6" and can fit in atx cases as they use the same screw layout.
mini itx are even smaller at 6.75"x6.75" and use a special itx case.
