Motherboard standoffs for weird case sizes

Hardware

Some research on how to fit a MiniITX board into my new old Compaq tower I blogged about last week lead me to this page on Bit-Tech by Alex Banks:

One of the points that definitely crosses the mind of folks wishing to jump into the territory of making a case from scratch, is definitely “How do I make everything line up?”

Alex recommends using a tray from an existing case where you can. If those aren’t available, he made a series of templates you can print out at 1:1 scale to create your own trays, or even just use to drill motherboard mounts and standoffs in an existing tray.

Très bien! Ah, so good (lah). 🇫🇷🇸🇬
