Is it as simple as unscrew/drill out rivots to switch it - i LOVE the BTX design - you can actually see the fancy GFX card heatsinks...

I'm SO doing this......if it is easy enough

its fairly simple, there are a lot of rivets to take out, and it requires some patience. feel free to pm me and i can try to explain in more detail, but i wont be on my computer til sunday.

I dont have enough time to upload pictures but i put the case back together and was able to do a coat of paint.

I'll do this, even if I go the tech station route... I need some kind of case for my folding rig.
post #10 of 21
Currently im thinking of using Meccano screws instead of rivots - funny how much Meccano i use in mods of my computer....

That way i can change it back if needed
