So,

A friend and I are building a mid range gaming computer. The parts came in today and we opened the box and noticed the motherboard was this one:

My question is... Is this bad? Like... Can we use this mini like a normal motherboard? He has no intent of adding a 2nd video card or anything like that... It just seems odd. I've never built a computer with a mini ITX board so it caught me off guard when I opened the box.

That will work, its not the bst obviously, but its still acceptable. Just make sure the case can accept a mico board, as the standoffs can change. My case supports micro, mid, and full size boards.

Ok, so I started putting this thing together, but now the Power LED and Power button connectors seems to be too big to fit on the board? Is this an issue with the case not supporting the board or should I be using an adapter? The one that came with the mobo doesn't even fit on the appropriate slots it would seem
