    ATX and uATX

    i am planning on buying a new computer, and have found that scan.co.uk have the best prices, but they have no uATX power supplys(if such a thing exists) so i was wondering if an ATX power supply would fit in a uATX case?

      Some of us are working during the day.

      For the most part many microatx cases use a standard ATX psu but will only take a microatx m/b. Others form factors come with a case specific designed psu and are expensive to replace. Always phone and ask for details.


      You could find this page Im sure :-

        Of course, if you have a regular size ATX Case, then you can put whatever size PSU you want.

        Any reason you are going to uATX?
        The only real advantage is that you are going to have a smaller computer- slightly more portable, but with limited expansion capabilities... And cooling isn't going to be that great either, with all those components breathing in a small, enclosed case with limited airflow.

        If its price, I wouldn't recommend it, because even though the motherboards might be cheaper, micro atx cases are relatively expensive to the standard size ones.
