ATCS 840 - New Build in 2020

Hello all.

Hoping the club is still alive.

My first build in this case was 2012 and it's time for a new one.

Because of time demands I ordered and received a big name brand workstation computer off-the shelf. And I'll get it up and running this week. I opened the case to look inside and it skeeves me out. Tight quarters, everything squashed together and hidden by shrouds or other components. Tiny little fans. a completely un-modular 1,000w psu. Can barely see the mobo. It does have an M2 SSD for C:OS. But only two HDD bays with SATA power and data cables (well I can only see one of those). So 2nd and 3rd qtr 2020 will have to see a new build in this case.

Three questions that I'm sure could expand into more.

1) Any experiences with gaming or workstation builds and good psu-mobo pairings?

2) Has anyone modified the top pop-up panel with new i/o (usb 3.x, port for single headphone plug, thunderbolt, USB C)? When I checked years ago it looked like a "tear case down to get at it" operation.

3) Any other necessary mods for 2020 build?

THX

Thank you
It should. Initially, I used an original Cooler Master V8 heatsink and had plenty of room, so Noctua's NH-D15 should be no problem...as long as it fits your motherboard and clears both memory and your GPU in the first slot. There were NO problems with it touching the side pannel.

Still rocking this case many years later although I added a window to the side of it. Just wish the pop up USB's were 3.x instead of 2.x. Oh well, best 50$ ever spent on a case!
Which color are you looking for? I might have something here, but need to look for it.
Black please.

In case you didn't get it off yet: it's being held by 2 clips at the side. You can pull it forward - but be somewhat careful, as they can break (speaking from experience).

Sheira Hey guys, I have my old ATCS 840 laying around and I have been wondering if it still has any value. I can't use it myself because of space limitation and got a small mid tower case instead.
