    Most motherboards have to fit into a form factor specified for it, currently ATX is the standard. It will fit, but it may not have holes in the correct positions, so you may have to drill more.

    NO God no! Drill holes in the motherboard? LOL

    If your purchasing it then definately go for a motherboard which will fit your case.
