Yea, and they last a long time as long as you use cutting oil.

Since the initial metal work being done on the drive covers is really simple stuff, I have made some progress already.



I forgot to take pictures during cutting, but here is the result. I shortend the height a bit to make it fit under the remaining drive cover. I'm not sure if I'm going to cut off the sides and mount it "perfect fit" style or just leave them there and use clear double-sided tape. . .

The top and bottom will get black u-channel covering, which should raise them slightly allowing for a more-perfect fit between the remaining drive cover and the bottom of the drive bay.

Sorry for not updating the past few days. I've been pretty busy with some other things, haven't had terribly too much time to work on the case.

I changed my mind on the front drive bay cover. Instead of carving a logo in myself, which could or could not turn out okay, I'm going to install a small LCD screen and run logos/system stats there ^_^

I just got paid, so I should be buying a few more supplies to get this project rolling again soon.

I got the new motherboard, ABIT AW9D-MAX 975x, but during shipping it seems a box pwnt the motherboard's box, which in turn made a packing peanut pwnt two-three of the pins in the socket. Luckily the guy I bought it from was kind enough to pay for the non-warranted RMA to Abit, but Abit's website has been down for a few days now and I have no idea when I'll be able to ship it out for repair/replacement.

Nice work, the unibits can be fount here http://search.harborfreight.com/cpis...ibit&Submit=Go
for cheap. I have used this set in the bay for over a year now, and drill into firewalls on cars regularly. They are still sharp today. Yes they do multiple size holes just be careful not to go too big, it is easy to step quickly.

Thanks man! I'm ordering a set right now

I just need a 1'' hole, but unluckily I only have a 1.5'' hole saw

You will like them, and they come with a nice little tote to store them in. I don't recomend Harbor Freight usually for everyday tools, but these unibits have proven the test of time for me. If you ever need a tool you will only use once or twice a year they have great deals. The build is looking nice, and you did a great job with a dremmel.

I have an update/sad news.
I got my LCD screen today and took it apart, after testing it of course, and now that I have it apart, it doesn't want to work

I think I might have cut a wire that I shouldn't have, thinking it was one of the wires to the speakers. Anywho, I have to try and fix it.

Oh wow. . . and Now I feel like a n00b. I didn't break it, I actually just plugged in two things to the wrong place

Pictures soon, I need to measure this out on the panel and see if it fits right.

So, I've been waiting on stuff to come in for the past week. I got two things shipped in today. The SATA optical drive and my Intec Xbox LCD. I tested the LCD, ripped it apart, put the components back together (wrong at first) and then got it working:



I guess this being cheaper brand new comes at a price, there is a lot of circuit boards:



Now, if I could just figure out how this thing could run off my PSU instead of using the power cable (which I'll probably just end up using because it's easier and the cable isn't exactly huge width-wise)
