The PSU says it's for ATX 2.0 and the mobo is just ATX.

It will fit, Im 100% sure, the ATX 2.0 just means it has dual 12V rails, and easy way to tell if it will work and or fit, is if your Case is ATX, and mobo is ATX, and PSU is ATX then it will fit, ATX defines the size and compatibility.

Even if his motherboard doesn't have a 24 PIn connector he can still have an ATX 2.0 PSU, Because with most ATX 2.0 PSU's the extra 4 PIn connector with the 20 Pin can just snap off easily. there is a separate 4 pin connector not on the 20 PIN connector for CPU. Thats where Dual 12V raisl come in, Mobo on 1, the CPU on the other.

In short.
Yes it is compatible.

Well on some PSUs you have to take off the top fan from the case, because the PSU is just a little too long. I did that, it works out ok.

Some people on newegg said the case had some issues with their PSU and the top fan. Oh well, I'll just remove it if it causes problems. Thanks.
