Solved

Can't figure out what type of motherboard I have: (ATX, Mini-itx, ect.)

I'm buying a new case and upgrading my pc a bit. I bought a new case that's a mini-itx case from newegg. I have a motherboard with 2 memory slots and 1 PCIe x16 slot which from research is usually a mini-itx motherboard. However it seems when I measure it that the measurements that a mini-itx motherboard should have is smaller than what mine seems to measure. Any and all help is appreciated.

PC: lenovo ideacentre 510s-08ish
Memory Slots: 2
PCIe x16 Slots: 1
Motherboard: Skybay
Chipset: Skylake

  1. That is an OEM board, so it may not follow mATX/ITX configuration. You will need to move it to the case to see if the holes lineup to put the screws in.

    At first glance of the motherbaord, it wont fit ITX configuration. But the only way to check is to see if the holes lineup.

    It measures over the 6.7 × 6.7 in of a mini-itx board so I'm guessing it won't.

    Mini ITX boards wont have that much room between the RAM DIMMS and the edge of the board. Again, OEMs dont have to use standardized parts because they are fitting that board into a slim machine. So they make a custom board.

    Could you suggest what size of case would fit this OEM board? Would it be further ahead just to get a new motherboard that has the correct socket for my CPU?
  5. A lot of brand-name OEMs use BTX style motherboards and enclosures. You van tell BTX by reversed layout, and 45 degrees CPU socket.
