Default Motherboard Compatibility

I was just wondering. I have a Dell XPS Gen 4 for my computer now and will soon, hopefully, be getting new parts and a new case, but I will be keep my motherboard and processor and such. I decided on a monster of a case and it's motherboard compatibility is for extended ATX.

Does that mean I might not be able to mount my motherboard inside? I know if case is too small for the motherboard then yes, but not sure if it is too big.
