    Hello All. Can someone tell me what "Card Guide" in this case is used for? In the mechanical drawing is #20.

    Thank You.

    hmm, thats what i use it for too, and its very convenient. But that leads to my question: Why the hell is it called a "card guide"? :confused: :?:

    Yes I'd like to know that as well because the longest card that I've seen/have still falls 3"- 4" short of makin' contact with the thing. :?:

    I believe they are used for long PCI cards, cad video cards run long, part is a little out dated but an old V5 5500 would reach it though.

    Even a V5 5500 will fall well short of the distance required to be spanned.

    The Card Guide system was used in many older systems to help support the larger ISA cards that were out. Ever see an old Creative Sound Card/Modem combo, wow. Today's machines do not require that however it does make a nice wire organizational tool. hehe.
