There are a few different variences of the ATX form factor like Micro-ATX and Flex-ATX. But the "Standard-ATX" should just be the "ATX" type. Don't hold me to this, but I am 99% sure that they are the same thing and they carry the same features like 20-pin power-supply connector, cooling condidtion standards, integrated I/O connectors, etc. Hopefully someone else can verify this for ya.

It should. Compare the dimensions of the case to those of the board. If the dimensions look confusing then contact both manufacts. for more detail. I really don't see any reason why it wouldn't. But I don't won't you to assume that it will just because I said it should...ya know?

and if you have a non-standard power supply like HP's you can use my solution: tape, preferably a firm kind not electrical duct tape which will deform with heat.

make sure it is wrapped nice and tight. had to do this for an old computer, saw a HP ATX power supply for $25 with an oversized fan on it that i was worrying about, i didn't even realize the enclosure was too small.
