    You mean what can you fit? Quite a lot if you cram it in, especially if you use an Epia board :)

    Today I fixed the HDD brackets in place. They were U shaped for fitting a HDD into a 5.25" bay. I've cut one side off to allow more to fit in the box. At the moment I'm using an old 4.3Gb HDD to measure the size and so on.

    An overview of the layout so far

    Enough space between the HDD and motherboard for IDE cables

    A closeup of the HDD L-brackets. The weight of the HDD doesn't really cause a problem since they can't be bent inwards when the HDD is mounted. I've turned the box upside down and everything is securely stuck :D

    Today I cut out the hole for the power socket and fixed the mounts for the PSU.

    I was so tempted to go this route, but another case came my way instead. Look forward to an update :D

    I would be interested in what finish you will be leaving it in?

    I think the two weekends of polishing my shuttle to a mirror finish kinda wore me out a little :hehe:

    Just a small update. My replacement backordered box has FINALLY been shipped. Should arrive soon, then I can cut the bloeholes again. I'm still trying to find a supplier for the 80mm laser cut grills that I want. The only one's I've seen are imported from Germany and are 120mm. Pics as soon as I get some more work done. :)

    I like the way you have faced the HDD ide and the MB IDE together.

    Will save a twist or turn with the IDE cable.

    Planning is everything.
