I tell you what repo, next monday I'll go back to th Surplus Store and see if they have another key. When I was there the sales guy just disappeared for a minute and then came back with a key that worked. If I can't get another one, I decide to might mail you the one I have after I figure out whether I'd use it for my case or not.

I'll take you up on that. If you do decide to use your key no worries.

I thought I would post a few more photos because I always like to see lots of photos of other peoples projects.

Here are all the old parts that came from the three cases:


This is the large tower all gutted out:

I have some pictures of the other cases and more of the large tower, let me know if you'd like to see them. I don't want to get too picture crazy

If you look at the large tower picture you'll notice there are no 3.5" drive bay. I don't know if that's normal for old cases or not, but it means I'll have to add some.

Repo mentioned using water cooling which I might look into for the mod. I really know very little about setting up a water cooling system, so I'm going to have to learn a lot. Also, my pockets aren't very deep right now, so I may have to go air cooling first and then add water cooling later when I have some more funds. Any suggestions on how to mod the case so that I'll have the necessary components for a water cooling system in the future?

On the no 3.5" bay thing. If you're not planning on running a floppy driv eyou really dont need any. You can buy 5.25" adapters for HDD's that will let you mount the HDD in a cd bay.
