That's sweet man. I'd love to have a rig hanging on the wall

P.S. My wife will hate you now, as I have to build something like this.

Sorry about no updates yet, but I tried firing it up today to install Vista and discovered my greatest fear...bricked the HDD. So do I try to do the mod again or just let it go? It looks really cool having the window but I don't want to throw another one out just because.

It does look nice on the wall though.

I would get a lot of HDD's from Ebay test to see which ones work...and play with those till you get it right, THEN worry about doing it to a fancy HDD.

Not a bad idea. I just ordered a 500GB WD Caviar from the Egg...WTH, 1.5TB drives for >$200?!?!

For now I am going to forgo the mod and just get 'er going. I don't want to omit it but I at this point I want a working rig.

EDIT: Ugh, stupid me, didn't think of this until I was on the porcelain thrown the next day...just order the exact same drive and swap out the covers. Well, I have ordered another one so now I'll have the 500 and a 320 provided the swap works out. I am also going to make a box in which I will do the exchange to minimize the dust issue. Has to be fabricated but I'll post some pics once it's done.
