SWTX (Server / Workstation Technology eXtended) is a computer chassis and motherboard form factor that is longer but narrower than WTX. At the time of writing, the SWTX format and terminology is used only by Supermicro, primarily for 4-socket servers. According to Supermicro tech support, SWTX motherboards are not compatible with ATX/EATX cases because of their size and mounting scheme. Likewise, ATX motherboards are not compatible with SWTX cases. According to Supermicro`s motherboard manuals, SWTX is a proprietary format. Dimensions: from 16 × 13 in (406 × 330 mm) to 18 × 13 in (457 × 330 mm). Most SWTX boards seem to be in the middle of this range around 16.48 × 13 in (419 × 330 mm).
