Some really great mods I found here.
I'm still planning how to do it. Please tell me what you think about this plan.Version 1
I don't want to touch the rear panel. Which means I don't use the expansion slots and don't use the connectors (except USB for practical reasons). By this I can maintain the look and the fan positions.
The ATX mainboard is mounted on a mainboard tray inside but shifted to the left. This gives me the ability to connect all cables inside the case. I need to make a support for the expansion slots so the tension of the cables isn't a problem. The support is mounted from the top to the bottom. On this support I can screw the expansion cards or maybe I will find a tray with an included support.
The cables enter the case through a hole at the bottom. The cables are secured against tension. This way I don't have all cables cluttered and the back is clean as vanilla.
The cables are tied together on their way to the cable channel. Maybe I connect the power supply from the original connector so I can disconnect the computer from the power source.
The only downside is I have to open if I change a cable but this happens very rarely. The USB and audio in the front and the back will be functional so no problems at all.
The power supply is at the rear end so the air goes out directly. Harddisks can be mounted at the top and maybe I add a cage somewhere else.
I'm sure some of you thought about this too. Do you think there is anything wrong with this plan?
