Hey-ho it's an update! With crappy pictures even, but I HAVE actually managed to do some physical work on the case. Well... actually I spent more time playing with my tools than actually working. And when I did start working I messed everything up (getting used to new tools is awkward). Being completely peeved at my inability to machine anything usable yet I decided to step away from the garage for a bit and focus on how I'm going to organize the innards. This case now has to include a secondary PCI video card, which I still need to shop for. After some fiddling I managed to compress the hard drive and DVD-ROM drives into as tight a space as I could manage through the use of some creative cable origami. And then I started making a simple combo-bracket. I still need to go to the hardware store and get the tiny screws for the optical drive so I can drill those holes and get it mounted, but atleast I know how they fit now. And the whole thing will double as the motherboard tray. This is the singularly most important piece of the case since it's the one part that everything attaches to. Since the case layout has a change a bit I'm unsure what the final design is going to look like. It may or may not match the conceptual image because I've been having serious difficulties with the heat-warping, which I appearantly don't have the right equipment for.
