ASRock have a number of motherboards which are about 30mm shorter than ATX standard. If you have places in your case to fit standoffs for the holes in the MB, then use them, even if they are not "ATX 1-9" holes, if not it doesn't matter, provided you don't push down on the board in an unsupported area. If you do need to press in the unsupported area (such as adding RAM), then you will need to support it yourself. Personally I add RAM, CPU and cooler on a flat surface, such as a table, prior to mounting the board in the case.
