    I did some more work today. The drives racks are complete and the drives are mounted.

    Pics= :D But only two, as most were terrible or usless.

    The drives mounted in their racks. There could be concern with the harddrives over heating, but I'm starting a new thread for that. (It may get noticed then)

    The completed MB cutout. I plan on using a thin sheet of acrylic for the blanking plate, as the NF7-S mounting plate is slightly bigger than would fit easily.

    The next step is ordering a ****load of electronics parts, including 50+ LEDs, 10-20 ICs, 60-90 resistors, several switches, and a potentiometer.

    It has 3 Panaflo M1As and the power supply fan, which is similarly rated. The Panaflo M1A does about 25 CFM if there is no restriction. Two fans are intakes, two are exaust.

    My primary heat concerns are the HDDs and the Radeon 9800 Pro. The Radeon is cooled by a Zalman heatpipe cooler and two of the Panaflos. The thread on the HDD cooling is Here.

    Thanks for the comments. :D

    Your video card is facing toward the front. Do you already have a VGA loopback cable to put the port on the back? Is there room for it (the cable)? How will you keep the connections from working loose over time?

    Measure twice, cut once, and you should be able to get all the problems solved.

    P.S. Since video signals are high frequency, you can't make a good loopback cable using hook up wire.

    I have the card temporarily flipped, the connections are really pointing towards the back. I had the card flipped because I had a fragile part that fit under the flipped card perfectly, I just never bothered to put it back.

    Well, its been a while since I updated this, and I have done some work.

    There is a large sheet of acrylic under the motherboard, preventing shorting. I made it becaues the MB had enough flex to ground to the chassis.

    The DVD drive has a hole for ejecting the tray.

    I installed a Vantec Iceberq4 (this one Here) on my NF7-S, I'll post pics of how I did it later. -The Iceberq4 is incompatible with the mounting holes on all MBs. I moddem mine.-

    I don't have pics of my recent mods though, and I haven't had a camera for about 1 month, but here are three pics of the machine running in the case:
