And YOU INSPIRED THAT THOUGHT!!!
I really like the idea of all that storage space you're going to have. I might expand it later, but my life goal is a suicide project like Scott is doing!
Thanks - T
Thanks Thrasher...I'm happy I've been able to help!

It's in Cincinnati going through customs right now! Can't wait for it to arrive!

This is where the only major modding will take place. The rubber mounts are movable along the sides of the Himuro, but I won't be using them as they make the Himuro for the 3.5" too tall. I'll be making custom mounts for them. I had to order my full size Himuros from the UK...you can still find the mini Himuros, but they are getting difficult to find too.

Thank you Namkab! I'm a big fan of the mITX form factor. Even though the S3 isn't a SFF case, it is sized about right for being able to pack a great system and all the watercooling that you could need in it...
