Ah you beat me to it. And a resounding LEARN TO GOOGLE. :kaola:
 
Primary difference is that BTX has the board mounted on the other side of the case, BTX also modifies where many things on the board are located, obvious difference is the location of the memory slots being along the top of the board instead of the front

@twoboxer: that isnt always true, i have seen a few HPs where they mounted the board upside down and on the left side of the case so coming up from floor level its I/O Panel, Expansion slots, power supply, this puts the motherboard on the left but its still an ATX

This is what you said;

"Simply put, if you look at a motherboard from the back-panel side . . . if the expansion slots are on the right, its ATX. If on the left, BTX."

Looking at an ATX case from the back the MB is on the left, in a reverse ATX/BTX case the MB is on the right, the expansion slots will either be on the top if it's an ATX system or bottom if it's BTX.

Mousemonkey was doing such a good job closing old threads. Guess he missed some. This is the second 2 year old thread in 2 days.
