Mini Atx Case

Welcome to the forum!

As others mentioned an ATX case will 90% of the time also support mATX, it really is just a short ATX motherboard, when you go to mount in an ATX case you just end up not using the bottom 3 standoff mounting points. 

 

Here is my mATX motherboard in a ATX mid-tower case:

I recommend using PCPartPicker to find a case you like. 

All cases shown here will support mATX as I selected that within the compatibility filter:

This said I would get an mATX mini or mid tower, as an mATX motherboard looks small in a big case and is not required.

These options are mATX  specific towers:

I’ve been interested in getting a mobo from Aliexpress but I’m having a problem with finding a case for it. It lists the size at Mini Atx and I can’t find any cases for this size. Here is the mobo - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000808137438.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.59aa1746zCgW6q&algo_pvid=f1d23ed6-1754-4199-9238-03ab0d082718&algo_expid=f1d23ed6-1754-4199-9238-03ab0d082718-3&btsid=0ab6d70515889596811614296e0bf1&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_

any ATX case will support a miniATX motherboard. 

 

unless you're looking for a smaller case than mid-tower?

Mini ATX is a somewhat uncommon size, but it's listed here in the second picture in the Variants subsection. :)
