I'm looking for a Socket 478 Motherboard with Intel ICH7 Chipset because I have an older motherboard ( Asus P4P800-E Deluxe) that doesnt have ACHI mode so that I can use an SSD properly with my computer.

The only motherboards I could find that are Socket 478 with Intel ICH7 Chipset are....


BIOSTAR G31-M4 478 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


MSI 945GCM478-L

But both are Micro ATX and I'm looking for a regular sized motherboard to fit into my computer tower that I already have. So can anyone let me know of a Socket 478 Motherboard with Intel ICH7 Chipset that is regular size and not Micro ATX?


thank you for any help!!

Pickins are slim - these are all but gone now. What's wrong with a Micro-ATX MB btw?

I know they're all but gone now but I'd like to know which models have those specs.

And I want a regular size motherboard so that it fits in my regular size desktop tower. Not a Micro ATX size motherboard. I don't wanna buy another computer tower that's my reason.

A micro ATX board will fit into a case designed for a full ATX board. It just does not work the other way around.

Are there any limitations to a Micro ATX motherboard compared to regular size motherboards?

No. Some micro size boards have less ports, but it's not an issue unless you really need tons of usb ports.
