I have been frigging around with Diptrace for over an hour trying to find the god damned pitch of the PCB mount sockets for these.

And I can't damn well get it. Every time I print out my PCB the pitch of the pads for the ATX socket is wrong.

Can some one just tell me what the correct damn pitch is?

Re: ATX main mother board plug...what is the friggin pitch of these?

ATX power supply connector is Molex Mini-Fit Jr. series or compatible. Sure you find a drawing.

I believe a ruler or slide caliper will also show you that it's 4.2 mm pitch.

Hi,

for over an hour trying to find the god damned pitch
how long does it take to type in "atx power connector pitch" into an internet search engine? maybe 5 seconds?
It won´t take 5 seconds for the first results to appear.
And it won´t take another 5 seconds to read through the brief description of the first hits to find the word "pitch" several times... Always combined with the value "4.2mm".

And if you are still unsure...The first hits headlines are:
* "Power Supply Connectors" and
* "ATX - Wikipedia"

Pressing to the corresponding links leads you to more detailed informations.

Klaus
