It will definitely fit. I only need use of 1 PCI slot.
Yep, you will definitely have to move some standoffs though, drilling a few holes shouldn't be a big deal if you take the time to mark the new locations. Also the AT keyboard connector won't be in the standard spot so you'll need to cut a hole in a blank i/o cover or just leave that open at the back of the case.
Yea it should be pretty simple, I've done standoffs before in places that needed them. For the I/O shield, I will just 3D print one, once I find out where the DIN connector lands.
I've beaten you to it somewhat, though in my case it's 386 and VLB 486 that got stuffed into micro ATX cases. I've put two together now, one which was easy because the standoffs were removable, that's the one in these pictures. It was made somewhat easier by someone uploading some obviously not for public use CAD files of a Yeong Yang micro ATX case 😁
The other is my 386, which has pressed metal 'standoffs' so the adapter is a 3mm shim that pushes the board upwards, with a similar shim for the card bracket screw holes. It hasn't even shorted out yet 😁
The backplate has a card backplate fitting to fit serial port etc but it's pretty cramped. I had to design a special bracket to fit my dual CF to IDE adapter on an angle for the 386.
I actually kind of forgot I made these, I was supposed to share this stuff on Thingiverse but never got around to it
