Computer board which runs the length of the case from front to back. These boards are usually old school and get you mad geek points, sometimes. Examples include the Voodoo2, SoundBlaster AWE32(not the PnP though) and many cards made for the PC/XT and PC/AT. Full-length cards are rarely manufactured any more as they are a PITA to put in and are often blocked by components on the motherboard, which makes having more than a few a major problem, often resulting from attempting to do SLI with 2 Voodoo2s in an AT board, where the CPU was garunteed to block 3 of the PCI slots in most cases.
