    One question. I'm planning to build a case in wood, and was wondering if any of you guys have come across shops that sell a motherboard tray. (You know, some of the cabinets uses trays that you can mount your MB on so you'll hva easier access.)

    I was thinking of buying and using just the tray and make a rail-system. That way, the MB is mounted on something that have the right dimesions for cards, IO's and screws... ;)

    pci cards

    I have a lot of old pci cards at home and after measuring those I found out:
    Maximum Width ~12cm and Depth ~1.5cm of PCI cards .
    Maxium lenth of the cards itself is around 18cm
    I can`t say on the millimeters because the last idiot isn`t born yet

    In the guides area we have decided not to sticky any guides.
    That is why I maintain a sticky index at the top of the forum.

    True, it comes from the good old days. "3 1/2 floppy bay" just got cut to "3 1/2 bay" - calling it a 4inch would have simply confused all the old timers! :D

    I have made a Abit NF7 (ATX) render with mounting holes in as well as PCI and AGP slots. The holes are exact ;) and the PCI and AGP are EXTREMELY close :D .

    Can email someone the *.zip with the *.dwg in if someone wants (you can contact me by my ICQ in profile)?
