Materials:

measuring tape
motherboard

Extend tape from 1 mobo hole to the next, and record length - repeat for each hole if they do not appear to be the same lenth.

:D

I had no idea yours was to scale. I think I'll take that download myself. Thanks

Needed them to model mobo in CAD. Also found dims for XP chip on website, just for realism.
