  1. 1. What size Motherboard do your computers use, select all that apply

    • Laptop
      5
    • Mini ITX
      4
    • Micro ATX
      9
    • EATX

I was looking at the video uplay posted for a build guide and they said the most common mobo sizes were eatx atx and microatx

I was under the impression if you were to pick the most common three, it would be atx most common followed by micro and itx.

There are tons of eATX X99, X299, and X399 motherboards, and even some high end Z370, Z390, and X470 motherboards are eATX.

having lots of products is different from being used often though. How many people actually buy and use those eatx boards.

You know what, I should've made a poll. I'm gonna do that real quick

I don't know the exact number, but lots of rich people buy eATX motherboards.

 

Usually, eATX motherboards are meant for extreme overclocking and/or have lots of expansion slots and RAM slots.

It's not common for your average consumer, only a handful high-end enthusiastic ones like ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X APEX exist, but this form factor is very useful in server/business products which requires more cores, RAM and IO potentials.

E-ATX is just slightly wider than ATX, but often uses same mounting holes. Many high-end boards are that form factor.

Why haven't you added ATX?

Can you modify the poll?

There's a lot of errors in that:

1. ITX=Mini ITX

2. You missed out standard ATX

3. There's plenty of other form factors. Maybe add "Other"?

I refuse to take the poll because there's no ATX

 

but honestly I'd happily go mATX if board makers actually bothered to give them strong VRMs on ATX boards at a similar price. Now, all we have are either mid range boards like the EVGA Z370 Micro, or the uber expensive Maximus 11 Gene. Seriously if Gigabyte and Asrock chopped part of their Aorus Elite/Pro and Extreme4/Phantom 6 off to make them mATX, I would recommend them. Rarely do people use all the extra ports you can find on ATX boards but not mATX boards, and there are solutions to solve this problem anyway (splitters, stacked headers etc)

I'd look into that claim if I were you. Sounds highly incomplete. Do I count as rich? If so, your definition is highly dubious...
