When you say mock-up are you meaning you want to use it for hole placement if that is the case you may be better off to have a copy of the atx form factor printed out cause I have seen variances in mobo hole placement to where they don't line up perfectly. For instance I had a case that the first mobo I used in it I had a hard time getting the upper right corner screw in cause the mobo hole was shifted toward the front of the case. Board died and got another exact same board and the middle right was shifted toward the rear of the case. So using a board as a template for hole placement could cause an issue depending on the accuracy of the hole placement. The only hole on a motherboard that is guarantied to be perfect everytime is the lower left one cause that is the datum point of the board. When I refer to left/right top/bottom I am refering to standard atx tower layout not btx.
If you would like a 1:1 atx blueprint for printing I can create one for you.
Have you considered just getting a motherboard tray?
Edit: forgot to mention I have everything you need if you still need them and I am quite close so it would get there pretty quickly.
