Default MotherBoards being put in cases

I have been looking for motherboards to go in my new case and they say they are compatable with my case but it doesnt seem like they would fit because on the back all the plugins dont match. ( ex. the mouse and key board)

The metal plate that came with the case should just pull out, allowing you to fit the new one in with the new motherboard that you get (it will come with its own plate to fit in), and so don't worry about that.

A little jiggling of it should soon allow it to be pulled out, though some can be a little tricky as they are held on quite tight.

I hope this helps

Yeah, I took it out with my hands, though I must have been a bit more careful than Money_man

I would advise to use gloves if you have some which should protect you, or if you are handy with tools; using something to get around the corners to make it easier to take off would be rather effective.
