It might just be easier to put the molex 4 pin connector on the back
of the motherboard and let the user decide how to supply power to it. 
In the case of a AT or ATX power supply I would just wire in a 4 pin
molex plug to fit the molex connector on the motherboard.  The 4 pin
molex then would have +12, -12, +5, and ground.

This way if someone wants to use a different power supply we are not
locking them into using an ATX type connector.  The 4 pin molex
connectors are pretty common and easily obtained.
