Look for any proprietary connectors for the power switch, reset, hd led, etc. If you find any, you may have to do some splicing to get it to work with a standard m-atx board. Might be easier to change cases. Also, check for any rebates on similar ecs boards. Ecs-pcchips are made by the same manufacturer.
