Difference between ATX and Ultra ATX?



I am still trying to choose all the parts for my new system. When I was searching for socket 939 motherboards, I noticed several Ultra ATX motherboards listed among them. My question is: What is the difference between an ATX and Ultra ATX motherboard?


I am placing my order tomorrow, and I still don’t know what the difference is. Any last minute feedback?


An Ultra ATX I believe is just the spec and layout on some of the newer MB’s. Provided you have a full tower I couldnt see it being a problem given the specs. My new DFI MB’d is an ‘Ultra’ but will fit snugly in my Full Tower.


Thanks bro! I really appreciate it! :iagree:
