    Default Loking for a GIGABYTE Board with 24 x 24 cm dimensions

    Asus offers a GRYPHON Z87 for example, that would fit the bill. But what has Gigabyte to offer? How do I search for a specific form factor? Found no way other than looking at every board and compare size. Frustrating! Before someone comes and asks "why are you looking at that form factor?" I've got a Lian Li PC-V351 that I need to use, that's all. TIA :( @Gigabyte: please offer an option to search - or sort your boards by form factor. Thanks!

    The form factor you are looking for is called Micro ATX (or mATX), that has a standard size of 24.4cm x 24.4cm. Lian Li states in the PC-V351's specs that it is compatible with Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX boards. That is one thing you should be looking for.

    The standard convention of communicating that size in a product name is to put a 'M' or 'm' in it. The ASUS Gryphon ignores that, so they are the ones making it more difficult. They do use the 'M' naming in several other of the mATX boards.

    The Gigabyte GA-Z87MX-D3H is an mATX board with a 'M' in its name, and they have about 15 mATX boards that use Intel 8 series chipsets, all with a 'M' somewhere in the name.

    I count 18 ASRock mATX board using Intel 8 series chipsets, all with a 'M' in their names.

    Another size, ITX or mini-ITX should have "ITX" or 'I' in the board's name, ASRock has four boards with ITX in their name.

    PC Parts Picker can be helpful, but is far from perfect. A person just posted the other day a list from them for use in a small Lian Li case, and the CPU cooler and video card would not fit in the case, per Lian Li's specs.

    but it is too bad the on Gigabyte's site (and manu others) you can't search for a specific form factor. it always starts with chipset and then you have to manually drill down...
