You need to have an ATX motherboard.
It supports the new power managment interface that the power supply is looking for.

Good luck.

to my knowledge there is no such thing.
They are two seperate formats for cases.
ie. ATX cases are about 2 inches wider than AT cases. Actually, now that i think about it. The main problem, besides the build of the case is the power supply.
Correction, there is NO SUCH CASE!!!
Sorry.

If I was motivated, I would design one. How hard can it be to have a case big enuff for the atx, have mounting holes for both, and an interchangeable or transformable power supply?

While I'm at it, I want to be able to open the case and replace anything without having to dissect the whole thing.
