Hello! everyone on this fourm has been so helpful, thank you.

I was wondering if this motherboard will fit into this case. The mounting points on each seem unusual (I have the Case, Motherboard was on back order, now it is shipped to me)

Mobo: ASRock 970 Extreme3

Case: Corsair 230t

Thank you.

I don't see any problem. Do you have a concern about hole spacing? That is a narrow board. It only uses 2 holes horz as opposed to 3 like most ATX MBs.

Since the case supports both standard types of motherboards(form factor) - ATX and microATX and you have ATX mobo , everything is OK .just one more check :for usb front header - see it or use pcpartpicker . no problem .

It just looks that way because the board is so narrow. It will fit fine.

You might want to pick up some of these http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-Plastic-Motherboard-Stan...
... to put in the small corner holes for a little extra support for inserting/removing RAM and the 24 pin connector. They help take the strain off the board. Asrock uses thin strata for their MBs.
