    I have an asus ranpage II gene motherboard and I have had a TON of trouble finding a case that will fit it properly along with all my other parts. My main issue is that NO matter which way I put the motherboard in either the power supply won’t reach the correct plug or my graphics card with be in the incorrect spot and won’t be aligned with the proper slots. PLEASE HELP

    That is a micro board. Any case that fits a micro board should work.
    Here is a list to get you started;
    https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?N=100007583 600546574 600556975
    If you are having problems with the atx or aux pw connectors, you can sometimes find an extension plug OR simply purchase a pw supply with long enough cables.

    This statement is making me wonder; the motherboard ONLY goes in one way. Even though there are more mounting holes, those are used for different form factor boards ie full atx, mini, etc.

    How to properly fit a board into a case;
    1 All standoffs removed from case, remove the IO plate [if installed]
    2 Set the motherboard in the case. Be sure it lines up with where the IO plate would be
    3 Mark the holes where you need to install standoffs. Use a pencil or sharpie. Do not install standoffs in any other place
    4 Remove the board and install the standoffs where you marked the case
    5 Install the IO plate and place the board in the case
    6 Slide the board into the IO plate and secure with the screws that came with the case hardware

    Done.
