    Hey guys, I was thinking about buying this:
    NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White Steel / Plastic Enth...
    but I just don't know if it's compatible with my Dell 0G3HR7 (CPU 1) motherboard. Newegg says it's compatible with E-ATX, ATX, MICRO-ATX, ITX motherboards. Does that mean it's not compatible with mine?

    Any help is appreciated!

    I would like to ask you first why do you need a full tower? Second, I would suggest you buy a proper mobo and forget about that Dell. Third, if it's not again some proprietary design, that mobo should be either ATX or micro-ATX and should fit in that case.

    Well, 2 years ago, I was not too computer-savvy. I bought an all-in-one deal from Dell.com. And now, after aftermarket cooling, a new PSU, graphics card and another fan, there's no room in my case! What motherboard should I look into? I know mine is pretty cheap, can't do much with it; hardly any BIOS alteration options.

    You did not mention what CPU do you have.
