Will an HP 198E mobo fit in an atx case?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Just as the title implies, I'm trying to move my motherboard to a new case for better airflow, but I don't want to buy it without knowing if it'll fit. Is my mobo an atx board? Will the io ports line up, will the screws line up?

if its this then it should be possible to put in an ATX or mAXT case just watch for screw holes

Don't think it's mATX, can't give a decent picture as it's in a crowded case.

Yes that looks very similar to mine, a few things are different but the screws holes are all the same and the pci ports are all right. My main concern is if it'll fit in a case that isn't hp. I know how the manufacturers design their products to only fit in their stuff, and I'm hoping that's not the case with my mobo

so some should match up with a standard case just make sure to remove any standoffs (on the case) that don't line up with a screw
