Default Case, mobo compatibility

would this case be compatible with this mother board?

I dont know how to tell whether it will fit or not.

Mobo:

Case:

Yes it should fit. It's an ATX motherboard, and the case is compatible with MicroATX and ATX forms.

I have home and it's fine for me. Professional has more features and I hear is more stable for gaming. Hmm..yea the ATX sizes are different.

yea i thought they would be at first glance bc they are both ATX but then i saw that the mobo is a littler smaller than what the case says. Im wonder if it can still fit or if i need to find a different case.
