I read in a Magazine (ATOMIC Computing Magazine, very reliable source) that Intel would be extremely happy if BTX were to be brought out sooner then later... (Profit reasons obviously) But also it would also explain the needs for better cooling on the processors which are getting hotter and hotter (THey will never learn will they?) aLSO two aren't the memory slots and in different positions (i think this might have already been discussed?)

No...it wouldn't even come close if you're talking about taking your case and mobo right now and trying to flip the mobo upside down...the PCI slots would not only be on the wrong side facing away from the slots but it'd also be above the given slots.

Yeah, you have to be able to mount your motherboard on the other side of your case and flip the back panel so that the I/O panel and slot openings line up.

My case just happens to be both ATX and BTX compatibility and after doing a bit of reading and talking to a few people I decided to use the BTX fashion instead. It was also better for the window and side panel blowhole positioning.

If you were to flip your board and try and mount it on the right side of your case, obviously the slots would literally be inside the case pointed towards your drives

I actually made a post on this a while ago back when I was still decided but no one took note of it
