| Almost all ATX cases will work perfectly with micro-ATX mainboards. The
| only catch is, you might need to move and/or remove some of the standoffs.
| The metal forms are the same physical size, but each one is customized for a
| specific model and version number of mainboard. So if you switch from a ATX
| to micro-ATX, you'll need to use the cover plate that came with the
| micro-ATX mainboard. But you'd still have to change it if you swapped from
| one ATX board to a different ATX board. -Dave
