Looking good so far
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 motherboard standoffs and the I/O plate
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
err sorry, maybe i was talkin too americany...
how much does one of the big ones run, as in how much does one of the big ones cost?
i thought you said somewhere in the thread 12 pounds, but that would be like... $15 USD or or something. just a guess. thats not at all expensive. infact i could buy one off you asap.
Yes approx £12.
www.xe.com has currency conversion at the current rate
not a bad case for 20 bucks.
I'll be posting pics of my case minus the components to show how the mounts sit (later one when I've finished)
Today I cut out the hole for the power socket and fixed the mounts for the PSU.

Looking really cool . cant wait to see the end product...
Can you possibly quote the reference numbers for your maplin goodies, because i was looking to create a Smootwall.org Firewall using the same case. because the chrome holders look great
I didn't get them from maplin. I got all the components from several places.
I was so tempted to go this route, but another case came my way instead. Look forward to an update
I would be interested in what finish you will be leaving it in?
It's staying as it is...
I think the two weekends of polishing my shuttle to a mirror finish kinda wore me out a little
lookin good! dont forget to dust out the shavings before final mounting
very nice, it could be a beautifull mod.
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.
Just need grills, a filter for the intake, and a HDD. Pics as soon as I get my camera back. I should stop lending it out
Wow, do you really need all that room?
It's as big as two full towers!
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.
