Default uATX mobo, case

Well my friend was putting his new (and first) build together this weekend, but he says he can't align the ports and the rear I/O, i.e while also having the screwholes meet the case's screwhead things (the goldish ones that stop the motherboard touching the case). The case definitely takes microATX motherboards, which he has.

This is the case
This is the motherboard

Any ideas? He has all the screwheads in that he can apparently.

Normally they are labelled with a key to say whether a apacer (gold thing) is for atx or micro atx perhaps he hasnt put the spacers in the right holes. Secondly has he got the backpanel shield the right way round and thirdly as this is his first build does he know what it should look like when seated correctly.
