    Probably not. There are some holes that will line up with the ATX holes and you can use the regular stand offs for them, for any that did not line up (there were 2 IIRC) I took those AT slide in plastic stand offs and lopped off the bit on the end to make them flat and that worked out just fine. IIRC My 486 is a baby-AT board.

    The worst case-fitting I ever had to do with a case where none of the mounting holes lined up. I had to remove the press-fit metal standoffs and just fit a couple of strips of thick acrylic on the case bottom and drilled and tapped holes appropriately.
