Compatible Motherboard

I have a motherboard from an Optiplex 760.  Does anyone know if it will fit in the case of a Dimension E521?

Hi Kreetz,

These are different chipsets (Intel vs NVidia), so it's very unlikely you'll make it fit.

They look to be the same form factor and they seem to share the same front panel connector (very important, as these models use proprietary case wiring).

My guess is that they are interchangeable. However, the CPUs use different cooling solutions, so make sure you have the 760 heatsink and fan if you try this.
