In size it is micro-ATX.  There are plenty of proprietary elements to the design though - from the wiring to the back panel connector -- that will make a case replacement a major engineering challenge.

Nice. The P400 is a really nice case.

Also, I think it is less effort to re-case an 8900/8700/8500 than it is to modify the OEM Dell case in an attempt to improve airflow, and looking back I should have just bought a new case.
