Custom Case Help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, i am a 17 year old engineer in training. I am planning on building a custom case that can house a 480 rad on the top. I am having some difficulties with aligning the motherboard with the I/O panel and the PCIE slots. I am creating this project in Autodesk Inventor and i could use some help because i cannot figure out the dimensions on the back of the case and if i create the part it will most likely not fit. I have most of the case drawn up already and this is the only part of the case holding me back. Please leave me some advice or some type of help as it will be very appreciated.

Have a look at this page, there are various atx back plates and motherboard trays on it, you may have to convert the files. Not sure if autodesk accepts sketchup files.

I also need some help with measurements on the motherboard tray, if anyone can give me some sizes of the I/O panel or anything else that would be helpful too.
