Are you sure about that case? The mobo is EEB not ATX, it's larger. That case is big but I don't know if the screws match. The PSU seems too powerful, I gave the Antec only for the dual connectors to the mobo. I think you should be fine with 700-750 W.

It seems some holes do match with the ATX form factor:
