Time for another update.

Apogee block didn't come with AMD mounting plate so I need to made one. I decide to use plexiglass.






After some testing I found some screws and mount block on motherboard.

I'm not sure how to properly word this as i don't know the correct cutting term. But, seeing as the wood is so this, have you thought about cutting niches into the wood where the mobo components will be accessed from so that they are easier to reach from the outside of the case when you need to plug and unplug things? I hope i'm making my thoughts clear.

I'm not sure that i fully understand you. You mean accessing I/O part of mobo, like pluging keyboard, etc, or components like gpu, sound card?

yes. it seems that with the wood being so thich, it'd make it harder to plug them in. the same goes for plugging the power cord into back of psu.

there is no problem for I/O part of mobo because there is enough space. For PSU i will probably cut bigger hole, because I don't like that much space between outer side of case and psu.
