Please give ur expert advices on the following:

If I use a micro-ATX MoBo with onboard the P5B-VM in an ATX cabinet for a C2D E6300, would there be any problem?

it will work no problem, the mounting holes are the same for mATX/ATX you just won't be using the lower mount points and have "extra" unused pci slots.

one benefit of a larger case is it will run cooler, and not to mention you are not restricted to matx mobo upgrades in the future.
