    I really like the small case, but cramming a lot into it, nice PSU addition. I really do enjoy viewing that finalised version of the side panel, very nice image to stick on it.

    very good work with the filler.
    looks like it was molded from one piece.

    this picture is confusing me
    looks like the switch wouldn't fit in between the USB and microphone/headphone jacks?
    do you plan to break the bracket or just use other ports?

    I think you'll find that's just a temporary 'fix' :idea:

    Do you honestly think he'd go to all that trouble/with such a high level of workmanship - on the rest of the case, then settle for using tape to fix the HDD in place :eeek: :eyebrow: :nono:
