Nothing,

provided that the case has enough stands to support the smaller motherboard. If you are using the E-machine case double check the motherboard stand placements and the port extrusions.

for cases or just to drool see:

and then the guys with too much time on their hands

Also close any open case holes on unused PCI slots.
