Mini-ITX is a 17×17 cm (or 6.7×6.7 inches) low-power motherboard form factor. They are commonly used in small form factor (SFF) computer systems. Mini-ITX boards can often be passively cooled due to their low power consumption architecture. The four mounting holes in a Mini-ITX board line up with four of the holes in ATX-specification motherboards, and the locations of the back plate and expansion slot are the same (though one of the holes used was optional in earlier versions of the ATX spec). Mini-ITX boards can therefore often be used in cases designed for ATX, micro-ATX and other ATX variants if desired.

The form factor has provision for one expansion slot, conventionally a standard 33 MHz 5V 32-bit PCI slot. Many case designs use riser cards and some even have two-slot riser cards, although the two-slot riser cards are not compatible with all boards. Some boards based around non-x86 processors have a 3.3V PCI slot, and the Mini-ITX 2.0[3] (2008) boards have a PCI-express ×16 slot; these boards are not compatible with the standard PCI riser cards supplied with cases.

MicroATX (sometimes referred to as µATX, mATX or uATX) is a standard for motherboards that was introduced in December 1997. The maximum size of a MicroATX motherboard is 244 mm × 244 mm (9.6 in × 9.6 in), but some MicroATX boards can be as small as 171.45 mm × 171.45 mm (6.75 in × 6.75 in). The standard ATX size is 25% longer, at 305 mm × 244 mm (12 in × 9.6 in).

MicroATX was explicitly designed to be backward-compatible with ATX. The mounting points of MicroATX motherboards are a subset of those used on full-size ATX boards, and the I/O panel is identical. Thus, MicroATX motherboards can be used in full-size ATX cases. Furthermore, most MicroATX motherboards generally use the same power connectors as ATX motherboards, thus permitting the use of full-size ATX power supplies with MicroATX boards.

MicroATX boards often use the same chipsets (Northbridge and Southbridge) as full-size ATX boards, allowing them to use many of the same components. However, since MicroATX cases are typically much smaller than ATX cases, they usually have fewer expansion slots.

ATX (Advanced Technology eXtended) is a motherboard form factor specification developed by Intel in 1995 to improve on previous de facto standards like the AT form factor. The specification defines the key mechanical dimensions, mounting point, I/O panel, power and connector interfaces between a computer case, a motherboard, and a power supply. ATX addressed many of the AT form factors annoyances that had frustrated system builders. Other standards for smaller boards (including MicroATX, FlexATX and mini-ITX) usually keep the basic rear layout but reduce the size of the board and the number of expansion slots.

The official specifications were released by Intel in 1995, and have been revised numerous times since, the most recent being version 2.3, released in 2007.

A full-size ATX board is 12 in × 9.6 in (305 mm × 244 mm). This allows many ATX form factor chassis to accept MicroATX boards as well.
