Newegg opens in a few hours, i'll be looking into some asus mobos in the mean time. That Micro Atx isint fitting very snug in my case either. Almost like my case is only for ATX, which is not how its advertised..
Sounds like you have the motherboard in the case wrong which is why I kept asking if you went through ALL troubleshooting before coming to a conclusion. If the board is shorting it wont turn on to prevent failure of your components. Just an FYI, any ATX case will support mATX because they have the same hole pattern minus 2.
To your last comment, ASRock is now #2 over Gigabyte, and Gigabyte is falling hard due to **** RMA/CS. ASRock make some of the top motherboards today, so I would do some research before making brash statements. It's the only reason I recommend them. Another FYI, any
company can send a DOA. I received 4 from Asus and 2 from Gigabyte in 2009 alone.
If you really feel like wasting your money before going through all troubleshooting options then get the Asus. And no, you wont have any problems. They all work the same. Spending the 189 is just retarded, but hey, your money.
