I am on my home made tech station for the time being... :biggrin:



Couple of questions....

Is that a "removable" motherboard tray, or did you cut it out of a case? It's certainly something that a lot of our members might be interested in trying.

I'm also curious about the card rack you've got there.... did you manufacture that yourself, or is it also part of a case.

Either way.... looks like a fully functional top deck testbed. Great job!!!

I bet that is a removable mobo tray. On the back end there are tabs for either an individual back panel to slide on and be secured or to slide into a part of the back of the case itself with non-removable back panel. It also has tabs on the front side for screws to secure it in the case.

I bet that is homemade as it lacks screw holes for each slot. And notice how he bolted the cards in, the holes are not tapped. (I would have just used a screw and a nut as well, I do not like tapping holes much)
When compared with the mobo tray it looks like a different type of metal as well.

Please note that I am not trying to insult this setup and I would have done something pretty similar mobo&card mounting wise.

Most non-removable mobo trays will remove without cutting, in older cheap cases especially. I have a few of them lying around here, I never toss an old case without first yanking stuff like that. I have one good one I use when my HSPC is already in use with another system. The rest are for if I get inspired by something like what Lima has done. :D

The PCI brace looks great, firm and sturdy. Must have been tricky to get the exact hieght and drill the holes in the exact spot.

I love the extra size of the wood platform it is on, and the cable routing hole.
