Just ordered parts for my first gaming computer. The parts are on the bottom, but my concern is the micro ATX motherboard. I know it's a good board but how big are micro mobo's compared to standard ATX boards and how do I go about putting it in the case? It seems like there would be less screw holes compared to a standard ATX board. are the placements the same for a Micro atx board?

The board I'm refering to is this:

Yea, pretty sure 6 or 9. Either way your case can still mount it no problem.
