Can this atx psu fit in a micro-atx case i'm getting

All of the micro-atx powers supplies are around <350w, and don't have enough reviews and images to be trustworthy to me. I tried going with some atx power supplies to see if they could possibly get the job done. The case is lacking reviews on here but I researched it more on newegg which is filled with good reviews.

Disclaimer: this is a budget pc for my dad, and the case has the power supply mounts at the top.

Technically, I'm pretty sure almost all micro-ATX cases accept ATX power supplies.

Practically, the N1 is an atrocious power supply. The much preferable W1 is actually cheaper right now, there are some Seasonic units available, and you might be able to catch the Corsair CX430 on a sale.

Yeah, I'm watching the prices everyday for holiday deals. Thanks for the feedback, I was just unsure the screws could line up on being a top-mounted psu case once I'll buy it.
