Right stupid question to some but I am in need of a bit of help I am planning on a complete new Phenom X3 system but I want a Micro-ATX system. The motherboard in question is 24.4cm x 24.4cm now is that Height vs Width or the other way round the case I wanted is below I think it would fit the sizes the site has put is the case in size not the mainboard plate sizes.

24.4 x 24.4 is the width and length of the motherboard, height is not included because that would be determined by the heatsink used.

Those two will work together.
