How much would you pay for one? I'd consider selling the mountain mods one in this thread for the right price.

Although I too am interested in purchasing your case (I cant' offer a price at the moment because I may be able to get my hands on a case in the near future), I have a different question. How did you setup your PSU so that you could plug it in through the rear port? I looks really clean!

This looks very clean. good job. I also would like to know how you ended up moutning your PSU to the top? Also how did you end up mounting the Mountain Mod Mobo tray to the case? Did you use J/b weld or something?

I cut a power cord so there is a short "jumper" that plugs into the power supply.

The short stock standoffs are

perfect

height to hold up the motherboard tray! I popped the long ones out with pliers. I used the stock motherboard screws to bolt the mountain mods tray to the stock short standoffs in the case.





My case uses NO glue or epoxy or any other "ductape mods".

Nice to know, I stripped my case yesterday but didn't pop off anything yet until i get the mobo tray in from mountain mods.

Would you by chance have a step by step guide on how to make that? I would really like to.

EDIT: The jumper that is.

Step1: Get a power cord
Step2: Cut power cord with scissors to the desired length
Step3: Solder the 3 wires from the cut power cord to the IEC socket receptacle you bought.
Step4: Plug your jumper cord into your power supply inside the case

How did you attach your G5 HD caddy to the steel on top of it? I'm actually trying to think up several solutions right now.

Pretty much, I drilled three holes into the steel plate for the optical, then three holes into the steel part of the HD caddy. I got a 8-32 x 1" coupler and screwed them in from both sides.
