    Hi All,

    I'm doing a basic build for a friend of mine. I've specced up a case to match up with the motherboard below. Could someone just verify if this mobo will fit it? Thanks guys.

    Mobo Dims: ATX (305 x 230 mm)
    Case Mobo Compatibility: ATX (Up to 272mm) - The 'upto' is throwing me off. Am I correct in assuming this refers to the horizontal mobo length? (in this case 230mm)

    I actually specced him an Asus GeForce GT 1030 OC lol. This chap is a writer so he doesn't really need any graphical power for the most part. I'm seriously tempted by those 1080 deals to replace my aging GPU though but I'm resisting!
    I was going to order that Corsair as I do love their stuff (800d owner here) but I went with the bumblebee case as it'll be going under a desk and there isn't much height room down there.

    Indeed, though I confess I wasn't sure how good they were on the performance end of things hence the 1030. Ah well, can't change it now because ocuk have already shipped the lot already! :o Cheers dude.
