Using an old Dimension 4700 case for a new custom computer

I'm not sure if I'm technically allowed to ask this, but I thought I'd try anyways. I have an old Dimension 4700 that I would like to keep, but it is completely outdated. I was thinking about striping everything out of the case, and using the case for a custom computer. I was just wondering if the Dimension 4700 case would be compatible with a modern ATX motherboard, and if the front IO and power button would still work if I were to replace it (with a MSI - Z370-A PRO ATX LGA1151 Motherboard in case anyones wondering). I've looked at the users manual, and not surprisingly I couldn't find anything about the connector type for the front IO, and just wanted to ask if anyone knew anything about it.

Thanks for any help, (and if this post violates any form rules feel free to delete it)

(also, this would be the system config minus the case and plus a sata blue ray drive)
