why do you want to know? it's a dime-a-dozen cheap case for cheap builds, nothing special or unusual about it.

It is better than crap OEM cases, at least both side panels can be removed and the steel doesnt look like blades in disguise. :bounce: 

Your old Mobo looks like an AMD OEM uATX board, if you want you can get any ATX board and its gonna fit fine. But unless you plan to OC or something, I dont see a need, get a better PSU first.

My point was it's a standard case so you can do anything you want with it - it fits standard motherboards and standard power supplies because it's a standard case. It's only when you start using specialist cases like Apple or Dell do you have trouble changing components out.

At LePhuronn what do you mean it a Standard case? Why don’t you try look at picture with the cover off the first picture you see when the case is turned when you can see the back there are thirteen screws there (I could put a bigger and better motherboard in and the PSU is form logisys 480W with a switch I might add this is very close to becoming a High performance PSU but it an home Theater PC PSU the box that the case came in was this box:


At Timop: Yeah the is Socket 754 it’s obsolete I need a new motherboard.

Sorry, I don't want to sound like I'm being argumentative, but I don't get what you're on about here. Those screw holes are to enable you to fit different size motherboards in the case - microATX will use a few different holes than standard ATX, and E-ATX in turn uses a few more. Let's not even talk about Baby-AT, FlexATX, SSI CEB and all the others.

A case that size is built to a standard and will usually support a couple of different motherboard form factors. As a result the case will have the holes to match.

I've got 13 in exactly the same places in my cases. It's a standard thing, there's nothing unusual about your case.

I understand what the OP wants. The guy expects some moral support (compliments, to be exact) from others. He wants some comments like: "That is some case you got there, dude!" or "Awesome!!!"

Unfortunately, the case IS a pretty generic one. You're lucky the experienced members here didn't call it crappy and stuff, assuming their case is a $200-300 Full Tower with water cooling system. No offense, but I can't seem to shake off the feeling that you're forcing your ideas, not looking for professional opinion from the experienced people here.

But if you really want to hear it: "You're case is better than my shabby crappy cheap case" (I'll upload it if you want to see)

Feel better now?

I suggest you broaden your horizon. For mind illumination sake, check out some articles on Tom's regarding PC cases and PSUs. In expensive high quality PC cases, even the box's design is premium level.

It's all about the money, dude... :D

To be honest I have seen worse cases... Like one.. You had use a 3 different keys to open up the case then you had to unscrew it.

Was I saying that I was looking for moral support? If that's that's the case then I'm sorry for that, what i'm trying is the case is big in my point of view I could put AXT in here but I know I can't put a ATX in here but a Micro ATX could fit in there but that's just me. BTW damasvara if I wow people and get moral support I would have bought a CoolerMaster Cosmos or Antec Nine Hudred.

That case will support an ATX motherboard as it is a standard sized mid tower case.

Actually, you can put an ATX mobo inside. Judging from the extra space below the current mobo and the screw holes, I'm quite positive that an ATX mobo will fit in. As a comparison, here's a picture of my setup:



As you can see, my mobo is a full ATX, while the case is a mini tower. Despite the fact that my PSU is bottom front mounted, we both share the same condition. The space is so narrow for an ATX mobo, yet it still fits.

If you're still not sure whether or not an ATX mobo will fit in, simply make an ATX sized paper and try to put it in the case. Problem solved!

Judging from your words "Come on don’t ruining the mood LePhuronn man it good case", I still think that you're looking justification from others about your opinion.

Final opinion: You can replace your uATX mobo with an ATX. Although I disagree about the concept that bigger is better. Bigger usually have more features, but the term "better" is very ambiguous. I personally regret having an ATX mobo for using only the IGP instead of a Crossfire setup. But then again, it all depends on the individual's preference... :sol:

Agreed Bigger is always when It's comes to cases or mobo most people think that when they see a case like they that think it's chap or crap and won settle for that. I bet everyone on this tread think that the case I have is crap off the tread of course. My case may look chap but with a new mobo, CPU, new hard drive ETC then I can make this case something that I can be proud of and maybe I'll have a little bragging rights. :D

Don't get me wrong here. As you can see on the words below my profile, I believe that knowledge is like a sword, it depends on the person who's wielding it. The same goes for your case, if you can somehow make that generic case exceeds its original value using your knowledge and creativity, then you absolutely deserve the credit. The hardware are mere tools, for the real sword is one's expertise. Proof your worth by turning junk into gold (just a figure of speech), then brag around all you like. I'll be one of the guys giving you the thumbs up should you succeeded... ;) 

I for one don't appreciate ignorant people with strong financial power who depends on money alone to build their rigs. I believe DIY PC is a techno art which requires proper knowledge and good taste of aesthetics. Upload the pictures with the new setup, and show it off to everybody here... Good luck!

The answer to the original question is it a very basic, entry level, atx, mid-tower case. It is intended for general purpose use. It is not intended for gaming. Ventilation, airflow, cooling, and cable management are insufficient for hardcore gaming or serious overclocking.

Nobody said you were going to build a gaming rig or a pc that you can OC. I did not assume you were going to build a gaming rig. I just posted about the type of case and suitable use. Different types of cases have different uses. That's all.

Poor quality PSU. If you are going to upgrade substantially, you will need to replace it.

And when you post pictures, please reduce the resolution. 1k or so by 1k is plenty. Some of us do not have broadband as you in the U. S. or Europe know it.
