It's non-standard, so you'll have a hard time working around that.

Hum, looks like a µATX motherboard

 

 

@Mattk13 you'll have to figure out a was to use the front PCB with a regular ATX case controls. Best way to do it would be to find a friend that is good with soldering and get leads for the power button.

The screw hole layout isn't uATX compliant, though, and like you mentioned the front panel is proprietary. That classifies ad non-standard in my book.

While it's missing a series of holes at the bottom of the motherboard, the rest of the holes look ok for it to fit in an ATX case.

 

Somewhat off-topic ;

As for the power button, most of the Optiplex I have worked with have that small PCB with the power button and LEDs, also with USB and front audio jacks on it connected with a ribbon cable to the motherboard, and they can't boot without that front PCB connected. I had an older Optiplex (1st gen core) that had power button trouble, tried to "bypass" that front "PCB", but it wouldn't boot without it. So I got a power button from a regular case and soldered the wires to that PCB and moved the PCB somewhere else in the case. That meant I didn't have front USB or audio jacks on that PC, but at least the computer was working.

 

FYI, before doing all that, I tried getting a used PCB from eBay, but seems like people know those are worth their weight in gold and sell them for way too much! :P
