Mid tower computer case vs micro atx motherboards

Hello, I'm building my first gaming rig, and i need to know. Will i have any problems using an ASUS amd micro mother board in a mid-tower case. I would get a full sized motherboard but i don't have the budget.
the case is a Rosewill FUTURE Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case .
The motherboard ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS AM3+ AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
, but the weird thing is the PCIe 2.0 is very close to the cpu. Would that cause trouble with Gpu also? i need this help before ordering the parts.

  1. Hi :)

    It WILL fit but why bother...just use a normal motherboard as more room/slots for future expansion/upgrades...

    All the best Brett :)

    Your case and motherboard will work great together. No problems. I don't see the issue that you refer to with the PCIe slot and CPU socket. You're not confusing the south bridge heat sync with the CPU socket, are you? Either way, there is nothing to be concerned about.

    Btw, that is a good inexpensive board. I'm putting together a budget build now with that board and a PHIIX4 965 and HD 6870.
