    Yeah I wasnt really sure about the Aopen motherboard but some of the other MBs that I looked at, didnt seem like they would match up with my case. How would I install that if the ports didnt line up with the pre-cut notches? I noticed some MBs had a little insert to match up to there ports. But then would the one on the case just snap out or would I actually have to cut it out?
