Question Where can I find specs for drive mounting holes?


I'm in the process of designing an open computer case out of structural aluminum and want to make some drive trays for 3 1/2" and 5 1/4" drives. I'm not sure what to Google, but I need the mounting hole specs. I know this is standardized, but what it the standard called?

I'm not sure, why dont you find out yourself?

e.g get ruler,tape measure, measures holes on a case you have.

Are you serious? I'd like some amount of accuracy.

If you really want to be nit-picky about it, scan a hard drive with something of known length (i.e. ruler). Then scale it, and then measure the mounting hole distances. Repeat for CD drive.

lol ya scan it at 1200dpi .... that will give you 1200 pixles per inch... i think that would be pretty accurate.

So, I take it that no one here knows what the spec is called?
