A couple of points first. If this board is a mini-ATX it will physically
fit in the LC11M.

What chipset does this board have on it?

As I understand it, the 'horror story' chipsets relate to problems from
(in the digital age) eons ago.

I would strongly suspect that a new motherboard will have no problems. I
sure don't have any problems with my VIA SP130000 motherboard.
