    I would like to build my own custom computer case. I have experience with and access to a metal shop, so getting tools like drill presses and band saws isn't the difficulty. The problem is that I'm having a hard time finding the official ATX specifications for a case. I tried formfactors.org, but had no luck. Does anyone know of a good site with either plans or a list of specifications for an ATX computer case?

    Can't you just look at pictures of cases and base yours off of those? I think that ATX case spec is listed partially in the motherboard specification [for clearance over parts of the board]. The most important part I think is the front-->back airflow design, which some manufacturers are throwing out the window anyways.
