I've had my alienware x51 for almost a year now and im super annoyed with it! especially the compact case, and its lack of upgrade ability. I wanted to know if the alienware x51's motherboard is compatible in the Cooler Master HAF X case. I also want to keep all other parts, except power supply. Please help

Yes, why wouldn't they?

The motherboard doesn't look like a standard mini itx. It's different

The Alienware X51 has a Mini-ITX Motherboard.
The HAF X PC case fits Micro-ATX / ATX / E-ATX / XL-ATX motherboards.
The case doesn't fit your motherboard size.

That's my bad; thought the x51 was micro-ATX.

but i read that mini itx boards do fit in micro atx cases since the measurements are nearly identical
