The notches in the box are 0.100" wide, spaced on 0.200" inch (or
5.08mm) centers.  That means the board spacing will have to be a
multiple of 0.200".  The closest to 0.750" spacing will be 0.800" (or

I would assume since Eric was talking about mounting front panel
components on the plug in boards, that the depth of the enclosure
would be 100mm + X1 + X2 where X1 is the stand-off distance of the
motherboard from the back panel and X2 is the connector mating height
difference between the plug in board and motherboard.  This would
place the top of the plug in boards at the front panel so the front
panel components would stick through.  Is this what you had in mind
Eric?  Or maybe I have misunderstood something?
