    Computer case name

    I want to sell a computer case that had a pentium (not 2, not 3, not 4, just pentium) processor in it, on one of those little square motherboards. But how do I advertise the case?

    Form factors information at the following, LINK.

    You can also check the mobo's manfuacturer's website as to what form factor it held.

    I didn't notice that it was anything special till I went to put a new P2 motherboard in, and the connectors were in the wrong place.

    How do I tell what motherboard it is?

    Here's a description: It's gold, and maybe 10" square, the processor says Intel Pentium w/MMX tech; there are four PCI slots, three ISA, two long slots for memory and two short (the short ones have those metal clips, and you slide the memory in diagonally and then tip them upright till the clips go "click" and grasp the sticks). The floppy drive is in between the memory and the power connector, which is next to the PCI slots.

    Across the middle of the board, in between the second-last and last PCI slots, it says: "MMX AMD Kt Cyrix M2 ready; DRAM & SDRAM mix possible".

    What looks like a northbridge says "SiS 5582" on it, then "SIS '97" and "PHA 1934" and "980ICQ". There's an Award sticker on another chip. What looks like an FC number is CA-5867 (on the board).

    Does any of this tell you what the motherboard is?

    It is most likely an AT style case so advertise it as such.

    I'd say it's my imagination..but I don't have one.
