Well the mATX form factor motherboards are obviously smaller in size than a standard ATX motherboard. The smaller pcb means that a mATX will offer less features than a standard ATX, although this doesn't mean that mATX motherboards are of lower quality. Feature limitations usually apply on the number of pcie slots available (limiting to only dual SLI gpu configurations) and also on the RAM slots. The ASUS VI GENE is one of the best, if not the best, mATX motherboard in the market at the moment. It has great quality mosfets and capacitors which make it an ideal solution for heavy overclocking. If you are not going to heavily overclock your cpu, then you can go for the next cheaper solution, which is the Gigabyte one.
