BTX is Intels big plans of creating a system to replace the current ATX formfactor. Balanced Technology Extended (BTX) isnt layed out as a normal ATX card. The north & southbridge are closed in distance to make CPU and RAM more centered on the motherboard. Details from Intel is http://www.intel.com/update/contents/dt10031.htm
