ATX standards...

I'm looking into building my own unique case (don't ask, I want to post pictures when done) and I'd like to make it to allow upgrades. So, I'm looking for a place that lists the ATX standards for mobos, PS, etc. Things like standard mounting standoff locations, max sizes for mobos/PS, and such. Anyone know where I can get this info? I could simply measure my mobo, but I know there may be bigger/smaller ones, plus I've installed 4 different mobos in my case and none seem to use the exact mounting holes as the previous one (and 3 of those were made by the same company!).

TIA...

Thanks!

Actually that does help.

However, after thinking about it, it would be easier to simply get a cheap case and use only certain parts, such as mobo tray, CD rack, etc.

thing to watch out for :)

cheap case == cheap components == flimsy mobo tray and racks etc...

I just built a system for my friends brother in a flimsy case... it was NO fun whatsoever...

I guess I should rephrase that then. What I meant was a case that has decent parts, but not nice looking. Doesn't matter if it's pink with purple polka-dots since I'll be cannibalizing certain parts. I'm actually looking for an older case with a steel mobo tray. The kids are using an old Gateway case which would be perfect. Maybe I'll just put their parts in my Lian-li and take their case. Probably the only 4-10year olds that'll have a Lian-li! :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
