Lamptron has graciously offered me their connector mod kit and even a fan controller which I didn't ask for. Thanks guys!

Minibox let me have the opportunity to try out their pico 160W psu. They make a large array of these pico power supplies aimed for tiny builds and would be great for any itx build.

Finally, FTW PC gave me some nice discounts off their products.

Now onto the pictures! smile.gif

Here's how I will mount the harddrive. This actually took me a while to figure out. You'd never imagine how big a harddrive is until you're building an itx.

This is something I'm particularly proud off. I bent a piece of white acrylic with a heatgun and used some nice button head screws.The sata cable was a pain to make though.

This was another way I was thinking of mounting everything but in the end that didn't work.

Using hot and cold water and a thick flexible cord you can create bends like this.

A new front mount for the 140mm rad and fan.
