STILL looking > 4 way 2 keep PCI cards secured in 2 mobo plan

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Here's a pix of 2 mobos bottom 2 bottom... I don't use CDR/DVD or floppy just 2 power supplies and drives.
The BIG problem I've been pondering for YEARS now is WHAT to put the boards/supplies/drives in ... though before that I HAVE to find a GENIUS way to keep my PCI cards stable/tight.

I now think, just make WHATEVER I mount the boards/drives/supplies on and in dependent on the PCI cards.. ALL that matters is that the PCI cards are REALLY stable and don't come loose.

I gave up on finding back plates and didn't like the idea of de-riveting them from cases to use and well it kinda defeated the idea of small when I came up with the 2 mobos together like in the pix below..

I don't care about the little mobo specific I/O plate.. I figure If I could find a way to REALLY secure the cards TO the mobos all by themselves the rest would be SO easy.. Then again... I have been on this awhile...maybe I'm spun..

SO... for one milleeun dollers.. HOW can I keep my very pricey [for me] 3 PCI cards AND Graphics card REALLY safely mounted.. ANY ideas if possible. i must be slow OR it's impossible as it HAS been over 4 years I've been playing with this idea... I studdied SO many things... plastic rivets and screws, plastic trays and boxes... WOOD...

The idea is to have a super small guerilla DUAL PC... so I can travel and stuff and do Lan stuff also...
IDEAs worshipped!!!!!!

Cool to be here!

Thank you

Yeah, I need 2 PC's small as poss... thing is I'd really like to base the case on the Stability of the card....then again maybe i'm being a dumbo again...

I mean I spent dozens and dozens of hours over 2.5 years studying plexiglass/perspex and then I finally realized it was heavier than folded tin metal which for me is the kikker...

THANKS!
