Case question

I currently have an HP 7965, and I want to get another case.

I noticed that the motherboard is not riveted to the case like most OEM machines, and its got a 200W power supply. (!GASP)

The motherboard is also an Asus.. I'll put up the model # later when I get home.
I've found several cases on ebay(400W)
that I'm really interesed in, due to the cooling capabilities. My current case is just not good enough for me even with the Tornado fan installed on the side. (custom cut)


Will, I be able to switch out the motherboard into a aftermarket case?


Possible new case

I,ve seen the best cooling with just a few fans in the Antec cases. I have one and just 3 fans and it stays usually below 35c, they usually have great cooling. The Antec Lanboy sells for 100, includes 350 truewatt powersp, Window Kit, and tons of other shznit

At first I thought the top of this case had a hemroid or something. Then I saw the top view. Pretty cool.

Look at the mobo, if it looks like kinda like a custom fit, then it might not work, but alot of cases today like the antec have alot of holes all around to fix alot of different mobos.

That's what I was thinking..... I'll put a pic of the MOBO later with the Asus model #.
And if the case doesn't have the holes to fit, I'll have to break out my Crafstman.....
