Hi I have a dell xps 200, it runs flawlessly now that I added more ram and the computer guy got all the dust out w/ an air compressor. i did problems with over heating, I cant upgrade the fan due to lack of space. So to avoid it getting hot and frying my computer, I'd like to take everything out of the original case and throw it into the Apevia X-Cruiser 2 Case (silver) I love the lights and im sure the fan would be better than this teeny one that dell used.

Does anyone know if this will work? will anything need to be replaced? as because its a smaller computer tower, are the components smaller?

can someone please help.. ty :)

Very doubful with a Dell. The motherboard is usually an odd size that stops it going into a standard case.

Yes but your Windows licence legally dies with the Dell case.

Actually that's the motherboard. :)

Replacing the motherboard is fine, you just need to make sure you choose one that has ports/connections for everything you need. And as Neil has mentioned, a new Windows license.
