does the case support ATX..if the motherboard is atx it will fit

as for the heatsink, check its length against the width of the case

mrapoc is right to point out the width of the case.

Your case specs are 205mm external - at best 200 internal

Your cooler is 146mm

plus mobo/chip and mobo offset pegs - 25-30mm approx

Leaves you around 20-25 mm spare approx

BUT then your case has a side fan in the semi perspex that's 250mm diameter with a depth that looks like it will be eating up the space left.

I think it's just about OK but your side fan may scrape of the ASUS label on the cooler!
