The 8100 SFF- is the MB a standard ATX form as like to put in ATX case (screw holes?

the mobo is tiny.?
and uses non ATX PSU and wrong power connectors.
here is the offical spec, on ATX it is a public document. it and others.
I guess you just bought a used $20 mobo? here is the original ATX mobo layout spec. in INCHES, not MM
can see your PCI slots are the wrong side of the mobo, clearly, so is NOT ATX at all let me guess BTX and IS BTX , says spec.
read the spec, first.? BTX are junk IMO. never use BTX ever, if trouble is to be avoided. backwards MOBO and fans wild.

why do this?
its all wrong, fan rules are horrible with integration to case all custom that, non standard (intels dream BUSTED)
backwards mobo, with BTX reverse side access, why go there.
PSU non ATX
PCI- slots backward, means a GPU card is upside down now and heat sinks on GPU hits things. like fan CPU housing,
and more, name one good thing about BTX , just tell me..???? why go there? ever? (IMO)
i have intels BTX spec, here in PDF, and is basically a horror end to end. read it first. see,

Yeah, somebody asking me about this as he wants to make the MB into a server or the CPU or something, so asked me if it was standard ATX which i though it wouldnt be but this forum would know yes or no. so asking here
Assuming hes not adding cards and can modify the power connectors as the voltages will be similar, my question is simply the mounting holes totally diff? being that BTX thing? thats all i need to tell him as he might be able to add standoffs and drill holes-
I am selling him a 8100 computer so what he does with it isnt my worry i guess, just answering his question.

no, the 8100 Elite series Minitower and SFF models are not ATX standard,... the backplate I/O is also not standard and no backplate exists as the case has custom punchouts for the rear I/O last the power supply is not AXT compliant it's very custom supply unique to this series the motherboard shares more with the "BTX" style motherboards rather than the ATX standard
you can however replace the 8100 motherboard with the later 8300 model as the board mounting/pwr supply/rear I/O are the same (same for the 8200 and the 6200/6300 models)
