Is it possible (without drilling any holes or anything) to fit an e-ATX motherboard into a large computer case whose form factors are only ATX and micro-ATX? The case itself should have enough space in it to put the motherboard in, but will it have the right standoff positions?

It will depend on the case manufacturer, who may or may not have provided pre-drilled holes/positions for the different form factor.

Would this be true for this: – user912 Sep 16 '12 at 0:54
No, as the E-ATX (Extended ATX) has a length of 13 inches while that case has a max length of 12 inches. – imtheman Sep 16 '12 at 4:38
