This design is so beautiful. It's simple yet so stylish and unique. Really loved the recessed rear panel.

Update #5

I had a bit of time so I finally got around to installing the Noctua. I've been using the computer for a while without a case so the stock cooler was already installed.

I've been trying desperately to take better pictures with my cheap point and shoot.









Isn't it cute?





I've taken worse pictures I guess. Unfortunately, I'm going to need some slightly taller mobo spacers. I never had a set idea for the hdd mount and it ended up a little taller than I originally planned for. But that's fine since then the cpu fan will sit right up against the top panel and it'll be able to draw in cool air through the top slot without any problems. I'll have to figure something out temporarily so I can start on the i/o panel.

I have a 150W picoPSU I am going to use. I probably could have gotten away with the 120W but I'd rather have that little bit extra just in case.

Update #6

I was finally able to dedicate some more time to modding.

First I cut the opening on the rear wood panel, but I managed to not take any pictures. You'll see it later anyway.

Then I started on the i/o panel.





That scroll saw is a cheap POS but it's a lot better than using a coping saw.



After a serious filing session I ended up with this.



And more threaded inserts.











Crap, totally forgot about the power jack. There are also a few places that need tweaking on the i/o panel. That'll just have to wait until next time.

I sanded with 220 and then 400. But the trick to get a nice finish is to do a final pass with heavy duty scrubbing pads like these. They also sell them at hardware stores to help with paint removal. The more aggressive the better, the really soft ones don't do much. They help smooth the sand marks out to give a more even finish. There are also industrial quality ones that have grit in them that work the best, but they aren't cheap.

Thanks! To be honest I haven't been particularly motivated to finish it. I'm not even sure where it is at the moment. I'm sure it's around here somewhere.
