Hey, im looking for advice.
Iam buying new Case, new GPU, and new PSU. The problem is GPU or the PSU dont fit case, thats why im buying a new one.
The problem is i dont know what kind of motherboard i have (mAtx ATX mini-aTX, uATX) .
CPU-Z version 1.61.3 Says at mainboard tab the model is CP6230, thats the name of my computer its a ASUS CP6230.
Now after googling it i dont find any information about the motherboard. If i go to ASUS website and look up the specs it only says there H61, not the name of it or anything. If you guys need more information about it , ask for it if you know what motherboard that computer has. The brand of motherboard is ASUS.

If your new case is atx format, you can use either an atx or micro atx board. Simply push out the backplate off your old case and press it on from the inside out. Then place your board over the nearest standoffs of the new case and push it against the backplate. If only 4 standoffs line up with your motherboard holes, then you're ok; check for extra standoffs that touch your old board circuitry and remove them from the new case.

Yes it is an ATX case, but it only supports ATX and mATX if the motherboard is uATX will it go?

you should get pc wizard.

this software can (most of the time) tell you what hardware you have.

then you can lookup what the form factor is.

Bios: american megatrends inc
Chipset Intel H61

Case standoffs have been standarized for years. Follow my directions and see if the board holes line up with the standoffs of your new case while pressed against the backplate, and you'll be fine. If it doesn't fit, it's cheaper to get another micro atx h61 board than change the case. Your used board will be worth about the same as a new one, but I'll bet it fits perfectly in the new case.

Bad news for you. I downloaded the board manual and found your case pics. Your motherboard is a custom micro BTX format. BTX boards haven't been made in years. The board won't fit in any atx cases; see if you can find a used btx case on ebay or simply replace the board with an older atx model. You might also make a backup dvd of your software and wipe the drive so you can sell the system and start over.
