I love your Edith project! That's actually what made me want to transform an old beige case into a sleeper mod!
About that case I could get, I've NO modding experience at all. The most technical thing I've done in my life is probably building my own pc some years ago... But I know I can be consencious and patient...
The parts I would put in it would be the ones in my actual gaming rig :
- z87 mini-itx with a xeon e3 1231 v3
- SeaSonic G550 or V750 Corsair PSU
- maybe my NH-U12S cpu cooler, as it seems the "height" is fine
- an ASUS GTX 980 Strix, which may not fit for 1 or 2 mm ; I could swap it for the EVGA SSC 980 my brother has...
- two 850 evo SSD...
I would fit the PSU on the top of the case if I can make the cuts and holes to fix it. I would remove at least one 5'25" readers, as they eat a lot of space for the PSU or cable management (gotta find some beige cache if I remove them). I might not have to remove the floppy driver
. I would have to modify the back of the case, to put a 92mm or 120mm fan for extraction. I would definitely make two 120mm holes on the ground for intake (filtered with demciflex filters?)... and maybe do the same thing on the front of the case (there already is a 92mm fan position though).
Still, will have to get the case back home. And find time
