I was thinking of putting a micro-ATX motherboard into a standard ATX case (which can mount micro-atx motherboards), and also upgrading the power supply. My question is this:

Since the case is ATX, will an ATX power supply work on a micro-ATX motherboard? Or are there power issues involved?

Thanks :whistling:

I've done it more than a few times with good results. Micro power supplies tend to be underpowered anyway.
