Since its system board is available from Sun as a separate part for
system-integrators as the SX2500[0], and since that part claims to be
ATX, and since the Blade 1500 also uses a plain-vanilla ATX power supply
(of very shoddy workmanship during the early runs), I'd say "yes".

I don't actually have a Blade 2500 to pull apart, but I'd be very
surprised if that weren't the case.
