you will have three main issues with placing a z440 board in a different case as the board is a semi custom design
1. power, the z440 is not atx compatible and will require a adapter
2. motherboard rear I/O is custom and finding a compatible one is sometimes difficult
3. front panel I/O (lights-USB ports) the z440 pinout is very close to the xw workstations
4. proper cooling, simply because a case has upteen RGB fans does not mean those fans are actually cooling the case
many cheap cases are not actually tested for proper airflow i recommend looking at the gamers nexus website for their case reviews
it appears that you have not actually invested any time on your end with this project, i recommend you do so and then after reading up on this if you have any questions ask
