I don't know yet what more I'm going to do with it.

New buttons!

Also could you strip it down a bit more so we can see how it's put together?

I am so doing this. I have a couple of old cases in the garage. I need to get them all out and see what potential there is.

The mods you have planned look good to me, what are your plans for airflow? If you've got space between the MB tray and the 'back' door then I'd think about cutting some cable-management holes in the MB tray. smile.gif

I was thinking about adding fans to the front and bottom (intake?).
I think I have just enough space between the tray and panel but I'm not sure.

Sweet. Are you going to put updated internals or leave it as a retro mobo as well? If you switched the mobo to a smaller form factor it might give you more flexibility in modding the case.

I'll keep the components. It's something you don't see everyday (not anymore).

hmmm - does it have to be beige?

I have an interesting chassis, but it has a black outer case.

I think is meets the spirit though.

Option 1) My last case - not much to work with here



Option 2)

Old Vapochill case. Not a lot to it once It is stripped:





Option 3)

No idea where this came from, but I think it has mileage - structurally sound and some room up top for some water cooling I think:




Could mod a 140mm fan in the front and a 120mm one at the rear. The put a 240 rad in the roof. I'm thinking gloss white interior




It even has a floppy drive!
