Default Help me please.

I have an alienware aurora that came with the foxconn c51xem2aa 8ekrs2h motherboard and the mobo is now dead. Foxconn has discontinued the board so I cant buy another foxconn but I need a mobo that will match up with the back pannel on my pc case.
Foxconn - Products: Motherboard

My I need a board with matching hookups to fit the back pannel of the pc. Any suggestions at this point would help.

the back panel should be removable....anytime you buy a new motherboard, it comes with its own backplate that should snap right in.

You can push of the back panel with a screw driver, push it forwards when the board is out, simple as that..

The foxconn c51xem2aa is also the same thing as the eVGA 590, which is also been discontinued, except its the different name (exact same layout..) maybe you could find a used one or something..

Check out the 750a/780a/790x/790fx/SB750 boards for AMD, even the 780g's are nice too

yeah just buy any new mobo that you like, it comes with a back panel, so you can just swap them.
