If you can't put an ATX board in it, then you are going to have lots of trouble. Additionally, any airflow shrouds and things like that which are custom to Dell's build probably can't be reused. Start with the motherboard and see if you can find out if it is ATX compatible. m 0 l Kamen_BG a b ) Power supply March 2, 2013 5:03:12 PM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dp-m7y1R_F4 If it's this case, then you're in luck It's awesome. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
