I'm not sure whether the Dell XPS 8500 case is compatible with regular Micro ATX/ATX mobos. I'm looking to replace the failed pre-built mobo with a new one. Does dell use the same size specifications? Would this one fit https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/VpTmP6/asus-motherboard-p8h77mcsm

From what i've read, H77 chipset is compatible with our i7-3770 chip. Would appreciate some further confirmation for a confidence boost.

It will fit just fine.
The only problem you might have is the front panel connectors for power reset,HDD led and power led, some boards are a simi standard and others different. Most OEM cases come with all of the wires in one plug ,while others have separate wires for each one.
You can move the wires aground if they are in the wrong position in a solid mono connector. Tedious bot achievable. Much easier with a pin toolto pry the pin locks in.

Thank you and I appreciate the added notes for the case wires. I would have overlooked this concern. I checked the connector its a single connector with all cables tied in. I can manually arrange them correctly if needed but is there a guide which can help identify each cable per colour.
