Should work..what do you mean they dont line up with the case? They dont have to line up with the case... Or are you saying the screwholes in the motherboard dont line up with the ones on the case?

They're not supposed to line up exactly with the slots on the case, they are offset a little bit. You'll see when you go to install a card.

As long as the motherboard lines up with the backing plate on the case then everything is okay.

what i meant was that the expansion slots on the back of the case dont line up with the PCI-E slots on the mobo, other than that the mobo fits fine.
