So when I get my tools back I'll cut this out and see how it fits "note, its a rough copy"...


I'm thinking I might have to give up a PCI slot, we'll see. "I forgot to draw in the spot for the fan".

i've made up my mind on one thing, I'll be moving the HDD rack over the left as far as it'll go since that wont hurt anything "though I did remove one of the supports, but once the hdd rack is over to the left it'll be adding the support that was there before, take a look..



the support used to be inbetween the hdd rack and the left side.

Also one of the main reasons for me moving it over was in case i had to goto plan B I would through in an mATX mobo tray, but it wouldnt fit normall so on the top of the pic I would have to cut that piece out so it/the mobo would fit properly.

"note:"

in order to move it over I will have to remove the 6 remaining rivets "pita"... cant do so atm, because the g/f & baby are having a nap and the bedroom is just above where I am in the basment haha so no noise

Just wanted to throw out a suggestion for you on the sound card. Go with an X-Fi platinum. The front panel that comes with it would be perfect for your project and it comes with a remote.

Ok, I cant make up my mind haha... I threw in they old thing to check it out to see how it fits with an AGP card in an a PCI card... Not to bad though the are kinda pushing it.... I drew some marks on where I'll try and cut to see how the fit is tommorow afternoon sometime when I get my tools...

99% of my problem is me having to use the PS2 keyboard input I have a USB mouse, If I hard a USB keyboard it would be no problem...

I've got this drive laying around.


I think once it could be painted it be much more friendly "to the eye" than a regular tray loading dvd-rom. I wondering if its possible to take the innerworkings of my dvd rom and put them into this ? anyone know... I'll ask.

Sweet Mod man. How old is that case lol? Must be pretty old considering it has the old school keyboard slot.
