Atx vs mini itx?

is this the largest form factor case and how is cable management inside thanks in adavnce

Atx vs mini itx?



You want somebody to take the time to recite a whole wiki when you can't even be bothered forming a concise question?

Atx vs mini itx?


atx is bigger, takes bigger motherboards, bigger motherboards mean more pci slots.
bigger than atx is e-atx
smaller than atx is mini atx or itx.
e-atx case can take any board (most the time), atx cases can take all but e-atx mobos, I forget which way round it is with itx and mini atx but I never really use them.
the upside to using a larger case even if you have a smaller board? normally better airflow and more fan mounts.

if you want something in more detail try using google, you can type in questions and it will search the internet for the answers for you.

​my apologies, ego-x. in future I will take the time to form a "concise" question that meets your approval.

​cool, very helpful, thanks. could you, in theory, make an equally powerful itx desktop than an atx?

If you're asking the question, you probably want to steer clear of mini-ITX.

ATX and Micro ATX tend to be very similar, with Micro ATX (M-ATX) tending to be smaller, with two fewer PCI slots. Aside from that, features will be very similar. PCs on these platforms are pretty easy to build - they're flexible and feature-rich. The cases have a decent amount of space for cooling and cable management.

mini-ITX is a different story. Those boards only have one PCI slot, one or two RAM slots, and a cut down feature set versus their larger counterparts. m-ITX is awesome, but pretty inflexible. With no room for expansion, you've got to be clear about your requirements before you order. You've also got to bare in mind that most m-ITX cases are small, cramped, difficult to work in, are a nightmare for cable management and have barely adequate cooling.

I love building on the m-ITX platform. But I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who hasn't had a go at this PC building lark before.

This is probably as good a case as you can get for the price, any lower and you'll be dealing with those nasty flimsy CiT cases which may as well be cardboard.

The point is that I wanted to help but your question was so broad I had no idea where to start.

short answer.... no
actual answer.... no but kinda
the basics are no a smaller board has less potential slots for graphics cards. how many graphics cards do you want to stuff in there? smaller boards may on occasion have less ram slots, smaller boards may restrict options for cooling as things can be a bit squashed up so cooler clearance can be an issue if you use air cooling. smaller cases as previously mentioned often have less airflow which effects cooling. strangled ability to cool = less overclocking and possibly causes unwanted thermal throttling.

the reason the answer is so full of if, but, could and possibly is it really does depend, you can't determine possible power of each by board format the quality of boards of a format may vary by components like chip sets

so with the breth of the question I have to simplify your question some how is the best atx mobo better than the best itx? most probably... but depends on your requirements.

see impossible to clearly answer!

Yes you can make an itx based system as powerful as an atx system.
If you mean purely itx motherboard, then you can have expansions to sort out most possibilities.
If you also mean itx case, then you will just be limited by space.

Like most things, it's just down to how much money you want to spend, and what features you want to focus that money on.
