Mostly just walling things in on the sides. All the components are laid flat, so it's just a matter of preventing them from sliding around, given that the case probably won't be turned on its side and I'm hoping it will be transported with care anyways tongue.gif. There are few LEGO pieces that happen to be made of rubber which I've used for the power supply mount and I will add in on the optical drive mount, which will help keep things in place as well as reduce vibration (although I'm trying to go with vibration-free components wherever possible). Since LEGO bricks are exactly 8x8mm squares, and 9.6mm in height (or 3.2mm for a plate) it was not too hard to tailor the size of everything to be a near-perfect enclosure for, say, a 12" x 9.6" ATX board. The board however, I'm going to try and secure using the mounting holes just to be safe, with some small rods that will poke out of the floor at those points. I took a look at the ATX standard for mounting holes a few days ago, now just to see if 4x4mm units (there are "halfway distance" bricks you can use) are precise enough to line things up tongue.gif

EDIT: Figured this was better than making a double post... Anyway I've finally finished. Totals up to 2651 pieces. Probably won't build it any time soon but I'll take some real pics when I eventually do... Already making plans for version 2.0 as well in the meantime hehe... I think I'll make an extension on the right hand side to make room for a 240mm rad... biggrin.gif And there's certainly room above the 5.25" bay for a hard drive bay or two.
