Default Change Cases

I have a Hp s7310n Slimline Pc and I was wondering if it would be possible to take the parts out of my pc and put it in a bigger computer case.

Now why would you do that?

There are different size standards to a slimline pc so you'd have to get a case that complies with all of the required standards... I don't know if the CoolerMaster Centurion 534 does; look up its specs, and look up the specs of your pc, see if the Centurion supports the form factor (motherboard, psu, etc.)

If you want my opinion... I'd say you'd have to start drilling some holes into that case to be able to hang your motherboard in it.

More than likely you'd be spending alot of time with the craftsman in your hand trying to make everything work in that case unless it supports all the sizes of the parts in your case. From the looks of the simline, I'd say its micro ATX.
