of course mATX will fit into your casing easily , rest lower space u can use to warm up snacks etc

lemme clear you out with the casing and motheboards in both ATX and mATX:

mATX mobo: 3 PCI + AGP (white slots)
mATX case: 1-2 Optical Drive bays


ATX Board: 5 PCI slots + AGP
ATX Case: ~4 External Drive bays

so if u r putting mATX mobo in ATX casing, then it means you'll be left with some space at lower reigon in casing as mATX boards are shorter in length and ATX casing has longer motherboard tray. so there you can put ur snacks while pc is running, to keep them warm
