Nice score. I love those old double wide cases and you sure can't beat that price point.

Not quite the build quality of the Li-Li but a score nonetheless!!

That's the idea. Not sure I can afford to get it at a shop, need to make some calls.

I'm just installing the newest version of SketchUp Pro right now. I'm going to quickly get a 3D model going go I can start figuring out what to do before I take it apart. It would make sense to make cuts for rads while the case is apart (before paint) and the pieces are easier to work with.

Be back in a bit with some renders...

BTW, for whoever asked these are the HDDs that came with it.



And the enclosure/hot-swap/RAID setup:

Absolutely gorgeous. I found an oldie myself (although not a double-wide). Had two PIIIs in it with a fried chipset -- Antec Full-Tower, nice feet and even a brown-black finish. Only issues were the horrible dust and the front door was missing.

Ahh, here she is.


Take that with the front Optical Door off, and I got that baby from the side of the road!! Haha! Thank you recycling! I threw a mATX motherboard and a HT P4 in it and she now hosts my CoD4 and CoD5 servers.

So, I'd go ahead and turn that bad boy into a (ahem, black) kickass server.

Here's some renders that show the case's potential. I don't have dual MCR320's, I only used 'em for size reference. As you can see they will fit with room to spare (including a 5.25" drive) on each side.

The left side is left basically empty for the MB and maybe a custom HDD enclosure in the roof or on the floor depending on what height the MB is mounted at. The right side has the PSU and pump/res or whatever else...





Notice I am liking those Xiggy fans?

So much potential. You could easily win mod of the month if you decided to put some work into it.

VERY hot case you got there mate, one thing i suggest is changing that green acrylic/ plastic or whatever it is. To something a bit more..... flouro for example, like red, or orange, depending what color your fans are gonna be and what color scheme you go with etc.

Yea I want to eventually do an idea similar to this except with this case. It's only single wide but it's long so it would be easy to put a triple rad right in the center (facing the sides). I'm trying to get one here locally but I have to wait for the auction.
