Thanks everyone, and I will give JB Weld a shot.

Did some shopping and planning last night. Bought a 3 foot by 3 foot sheet of aluminum. Also bought a few drill bits and such. Started to plan out where I wanted to put everything in the case. I would like to have the power supply on the bottom under a removable cover (almost like the apple one on the bottom) along with the hard drives. This poses a problem, I either take it out of its enclosure and the bottom sits flush to the opening of the case or I leave it in and I raise up the bottom pan.



I was playing around with the new aluminum and the countersink bits, didn't come out as well as I hoped but I should probably not hold the metal when I drill it lol.

I've never done anything to a case like this before, you just have to get the confidence that it'll be worth it in the long run and measure a lot before you cut

I'm starting to think I'm crazy taking this on but I know it's going to be amazing when it's done

I'd put the power supply up top.It fits there perfectly but you have to cut hole for 120mm fan.That way you dont have to void your warranty espicially a 5 or 7 year one like corsair or seasonic. The seasonic X650 is an awesome PSU plus it's fully modular so you dont have to worry about voiding you're warranty sleeving cables. If you want a lower budget the Hive 650w by Rosewill is supposed to be actually really good and is only $80 plus it modular. Just my 2c

Cool. One thing I did that I'd highly recommend is grabbing a mountain mods mono tray, much nicer than slapping on mounts and getting the back panel all setup.

I'd suggest getting a Lian Li mobo tray to use. Makes things way easier for doing things like this. If you buy a used PSU, you can disconnect the AC plug and relocate it to the center where the original PSU connected.

You make a good point, I don't want to void the warranty. On the other hand I do want everything case wise to look as stock as possible.. If that's going to be possible. If the power supply goes up top I will have to move the mobo down and cut the whole back of the case off and make a new backing (lower).

That seasonic psu looks great, I like the fully modular. They have great reviews on newegg too. I might have to go with that one, maybe a 750w though.

For the mobo trays, I'm still going to try to make one out of my sheet I have. I'll be making 3 new panels all together, bottom, mobo, and optical drive area and I'm hoping to use the same material to get them all to match. My biggest concern now I guess is finding a riser to attach to the case (with epoxy) that the mobo tray will mount to. I'm hoping to find something about 15mm tall so I can run all the cables underneath it.
