Also interested in one, depending on cost. What would you take to ship to Sweden?
Aslo, are those screws going to be sticking out of the case?

Could you add a thunderbolt port(s)? Maybe one instead the modem port.

Doesn't that defy the entire point of keeping it unchanged, and also wouldn't that be a much larger cost than the others?

Wouldn't change the form (ports layout), but funcionality by replacing one old unused port by a modern one of a similiar form factor. Surely it would cost more and a lot of people may not be interested in adding this port, so I'm asking if this one could be done customized.

Sorry, just so you don't count me in your calculations, I just bought a Lian-Li motherboard tray, so I won't be needing this anymore. Maybe if I make another one. My dad expressed wishes in me making him one :).

Thunderbolt wouldn't work unless it was simply an integrated female to male connector

If you read the spiel for the windows mobos with thunderbolt, the traces on the board are specially 'curved' as that's part of the specification to keep throughput or something

I could be interested in 1 or 2 units if you provide USB3 ports and possibly a thunderbolt port.

ciao!

I'm in for sure, keep us posted.

This is rediculous. The entire point of having the same ports as the old case goes doesn't comply with having thunderbold ports. You might just as well stick a ATX-backplate in the case.

Getting thunderbolt is completely out of the question..

I would also be interested - I keep swinging back and forth on using the back I/O as is or cutting it.

@hacbookpro The idea is to keep it as orginal as possible while putting new, better stuff in. If the point was to keep it 100% orginal, than you'd just have a PPC G5. Compromises, and sometimes cuts need to be made. Its all a matter of prefrence, skill, time, desire, money, etc.

I was stuck on wanting to use the orginal PSU - after all, its 600 watts and thats more than enough for me, and heck, most of the connectors look the same. But its not the same (25v pins anyone) and its just not gonna work using that old PSU (thanks eelhead for steering me in the right direction). But you can modify a modern ATX PSU to put in the orginal space. Its not orginal, but is serves the purpose of powering your non-orginal motherboard.

I would like one of these becasue then it gives me the option of either way. Right now, I'm looking at cutting, as you stated you did with your LanLi tray with your hackintosh hacbookpro.

Its just my opinion, I could be wrong.
