Would my Asus M11BB motherboard fit in a new case?

I bought a Corsaid H100i cpu cooler in the hopes that I could mount the radiator in my current computer case, sadly I could not. I was hoping that i'd be able to buy a new computer case to fit the radiator nicely, but i don't know if the motherboard could be removed and put in another case (I heard there are some case compatibility issues with prebuilt computers.) So I was hoping someone could help me do a couple things.

1. Tell me if my motherboard can even be put into a new case
2. Help me find one that i can mount the 240mm radiator in it, hopefully under 100 dollars (that is if the motherboard can be moved into another case)

Thanks in advance for the help.

Best I can tell it's a regular ASUS F2A85-M motherboard. The only problem I've had with moving components before from a prebuilt computer was a dell that had proprietary connections to the power switch and LEDs on the front, but I would guess ASUS is less likely to do something shifty like that. Just look to make sure it has regular power/reset/HD LED/PWR LED connections and you should be good.

The majority of name brand cases $40 and up have 2 fan slots on the top you could use with the cooler. I'm entirely too lazy to dig through partpicker, but you can look for something similar to these.
