no im pretty sure they wont, but atx power supplies are supposed to fit in btx cases. the btx boards are gonna be arranged differnetly for better air circulation, but i think theres also a size issue i just dont remember the details on that. the btx will have 3 sizes though lol. pica btx, um i think mini btx and the regular btx (i dont htink the regular has a special name, but im not 100% just so u know..)
