Is HP Compaq 6300 Pro PSU a common ATX Mount?

This is the PC I have: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883286467&cm_re=HP_Compaq_6300_Pro-_-83-286-467-_-Product#close
There are pictures at that site showing the PSU from the inside and from the rear. I want to know I can replace it with a standard ATX PSU. Are the mounting holes on the back the same as an ATX?

    The motherboard does not use standard psu connectors so you can't use a normal psu. There were adpaters out there that you could use to transfer a 24pin cable to the hp 8+6pin but those are hard to find nowadays.

  2. Darn. OK, thank you.
    What's your conclusion on the mounting holes, though?

    Also non standard. I had to ducktape mine to the case in my 8300.
