It should be fine. Emachines uses micro atx motherboards and the Thermaltake Soprano supports micro atx motherboards.

Dont put a screw in the motherboard without a spacer. if you dont have a spacer for one of your screw holes then leave it. But i dont recommend this. so take one of the spacers you have and go to a hardware store and try to find the same size spacer. Some spacers are funny about letting certain screws in it so i would take one of the screws too.
