    Its an ATX motherboard and an ATX case so it should....

    but....

    Sometimes you will find that certain cases mess things up, they make the board hard to mount or don't allow you to use all the slots etc, only way to find out really is to try. :D

    Case :-
    200x420x430mm(W,H,D)
    Standard ATX 7 slots

    Form factors :-

    On the available info - ATX is ATX so it should.

    But...

    You may want to check that either the motherboard or the case ships with the correct cutout for the back panel.

    And the case appears to ship with a PSU with a 20pin PSU plug, which is somewhat old now. If the motherboard is a 24pin then this case won't do as it.

    It says "P 4 ATX 500W CE 20+4 Pin Power Supply" so I thought it meant that it had 20 plus 4 pins to make 24 or is that not what it means.

    Its a 20+4 power supply, so I'd think you should be ok, you can combine them to form 24 pin connector I think.
    (Not built a PC since the P4 came out :oops: )

    Good point about the back plate, I've had to get out the tin snips before...

    It isn't clear. It *could* mean what you think, or it could be the older separate plugs which aren't stackable. You'll need to check.

    this is a 20+4 pin connector, allows you to use it on older motherboards

    the motherboard back plate is a generic fit for an ATX case so should be ok.
