Thanks for all your kind words guys,
I work as a Systems engineer for a major global enterprise services company.
So the raid card arrived today, drives should be here tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest,
I have a remote battery kit coming as well, it was meant to come with the raid card but they didn't have it in stock.
I can still set it all up without the battery and screw it in later
on to the pics!
Now for mounting options, The goal is to mount the card on the opposite side of the motherboard tray,
I have some adhesive pcb supports pictured a few posts up, however they are for 4mm/3.2mm thread holes.
There are two 3.2mm thread holes where the board is attached to the PCI slot cover however the thread holes on the rest of the card are 2-2.3mm.
I'd like to avoid drilling into the back of the motherboard tray, so I'm thinking a square peice of acrylic with plastic spacers or something similar.
I know a guy that could cut me some acrylic with threaded holes for a reasonable price.
I'll give him a call tomorrow and see what he says,
Otherwise I might get lucky and find some adhesive rubber that i can create threaded holes in.
I will keep you posted.
Btw If anyone's interested in the battery I have on order for the card here is a link
. I've also ordered a remote battery kit so i can place it anywhere in the case and avoid heating up the raid card (default position is to mount the battery to the raid card itself.
PS. if someone has some ideas for mounting this I'd be very grateful
edit : bah you think you could buy adhesive standoffs in 2.5mm, or adhesive mounts that can be screwed into, scoured the internet, looks like its going to have to be acrylic.Edited by soth - 1/14/13 at 2:04am
