    Hi all my name is Rashiga from Sri Lanka I'm a pretty noob in case modding and here's my second mod. The idea is to convert an old printer casing into a pc case. This printer has a very nice design and I always thought how awesome will it be if it was a pc casing.

    I'm not sure if the project will succeed but lets see how things go.

    following are some images that will show progress of packaging of the components. all the components are not working though :D
    mini itx components will solve most of the problems in packaging.

    mini itx(paper template) form factor motherboard will also provide more space. The bent sheet metal is the template for a graphics card. :D

    I like if I can place the motherboard like this but there's no space for other components if if do so. BTW this is a mATX motherboard.

    Here you can see another possibility for packaging. you can see my old 9600gt card also.

    Due to small space cooling will be an issue. Here you can see that 120mm can be fitted on the top as a outlet.

    Please give you comments and critics.
    P.S - Sorry for my poor English.
