    oooops then

    as that would be 25.4mm +12.7 = 38.1mm

    Scan said 40mm, so as i have done it to 40mm, its gonna be a mile out. (1.9mm) is too far out if it is.

    did you use a vernier caliper?

    not sure now if id better stop the laser cut before its too late.

    id of thought yours is more accurate and scan in a huff, just said, oh yeah its about 40mm, not realising it needs be accurate to minimum 0.5mm

    I would stop and not do any of these cuts until you have the board in hand so you can be sure

    all cuts will be ok yes, apart from bottom 3 xl holes it seems,

    had not intended to buy board as yet, if ever, wanted to incorporate into case build, as it should be there.

    Might as well just wait for those three holes then, no reason to rush to do it now and then find later it is wrong.

    1 1/2 inches = 38.1000 MM

    I Just used a chart to convert

    •To convert inches to mm - multiply inches by 25.4

    Judge.

    yes that is correct on conversion, as stated.

    this measurement needs to be accurate (ish) within 0.5mm really.
    Really need to avoid the "Its about 1.5"" syndrome, needs to be accurate.

    So im gonna go with this measurement, the laser will be accurate to 0.1mm

    So thats from center to center then?

    gonna change drawing from 40mm to 38.1mm,

    If the holes are too far out, what happens is the standoffs short out on the bottom of the mobos tracks, and boom, theree goes ya 465 mobo.
    Now sometimes the solder resist prevents this, but if its accurate then isnt a problem.

    right changing to 38.1mm and see if i can get in contact with laser cutter then.

    Thanks for your help.

    P.S, if you wanna convert back the other way, multiply by 0.03937

    Well you would of course check before powering up the board I would hope, so if it is wrong you shouldn't be shorting out anything as you should see it before you power up or even finish installing the board :)

    Oh yes, indeed.

    Although its hard to tell if shorting if mobo is on its standoffs of course.

    I always check to see the amount of area around holes before fitting for sure. normally tracks are a mm or so away from around the holes.



    this is really sucking,

    gigabyte got back again, say its about (grrrr about) wheres all the engineers.

    40-41mm

    talk about inaccurate.

    surely they know how to use a vernier.

    FacePalm.... grrrrr.

    OK, your gonna love this.

    im gonna make 1 tray at 38mm and another at 40mm.

    Now lets see if i can still be defeated.

    he he, probably end up as 39mm, knowing my luck.

    The fact that gigabyte said "Its about".... dont say about, measure it, they supposed to be engineers, and not know how to use a vernier, its crazy.

    However, its kinda fun something so simple, can be such a top secret answer eh?

    Gonna cost me another 10, i could ask gigabyte to make me a ud9 with the dimensions they sent me, if there wrong ... (some hope)... he he.

    Well you are talking to the tech support, not engineers so that sounds about :) like an expected answer.

    If you can wait 2 weeks until my contact is back I can find out for sure for you.

    I will try to ask another of my contacts with Gigabyte, but sometimes they do not always get back to me on little matters such as this, but my other contact will once he is back in the office

    Too late

    Latest version, now suits XL atx, may not look as good if only using atx standard now, but i guess compatibility is main issue, not the looks.

    Can ONLY be used on Monster3 build, wont be compat with current case, as ive jiggled position around a touch, so that all writing can be seen if using XL mobos.

    I have one i can add the extra holes for my current build though.
