I have my cosmos s, which is by far one my favorite computer case. A few months ago I purchased an SR-2 and stuffed it in the case, and surprisingly, it fit. Currently, there are not enough expansion slots, and I'm not 100% comfortable with how it rests in the case, but I was wondering if totally modifying the case might be a viable option here. I've always planned to get the interior powdercoated black, but have yet to do so. I've also seen people put mountain mods HPTX form factor motherboard trays in their 800d's or 700d's. Now, I was curious as to whether this would be a viable option, as I no longer have to worry about the placement of my power supply, since it is at the bottom of the case in the drive bay area. I'd really appreciate feedback, especially from someone whos done a huge overhaul of a case, but any feedback would be appreciated.
My plan is basically to take a dremel to the motherboard tray, and put in the mountain mods one in its place. It will require a lot of custom fitting for the plastic parts of the case. Does this sound like a possibility to anyone who's done a huge case mod or inserted one of these motherboards in a 700d or 800d.
