it should definitely fit. an aTX mobo should have no problem fitting into an atx mid tower.

yes, they should. if there is a metal plate covering that area just pop it out. the motherboard should come with a frame specific for that mobo's arrangement of ps/2 , usb, ethernet ports.

the motherboard comes with its own custom plate, u just pop out the one that comes with the case and put in that one and it will fit perfectly

thats easy....just bang on the plate on the case until it pops into the case, then pop the one in that came with the motherboard and you'll be all set.
Motherboards have different configurations, so cases just come with a blank piece to cover up the hole.

Motherboards can be a pain in the ass to set up. Basically, like everyone said, put the custom metal on the back, and slide the mobo in. But remember to put all the risers on the case first.

And put them in the right place

99.9% of the time ATX Case + ATX Mobo = works.
