Re: Cryorig R1 - Before or After Mounting MoBo?

What motherboard size is your motherboard? With ITX and Micro-ATX, flex shouldn't be too much of an issue when installing the mobo.

Re: Form factor trends

I don't know why mini ITX cases that are actually small aren't more popular. Most mini ITX cases are bigger than my current micro ATX case.
