    Why did you try to start a new thread when your original one was already here?

    I want to say a really big thank you to CableMod! You have to try out their Configurator!

    I'm like 10% done.... you don't need to assume that this is it and it's done. I'll be cutting up Case Labs XL-ATX trays to fit both motherboards and etc etc.

    Don't just go into a log and assume that's it and post something flaming the OP without knowing if it's done or not.

    If you would've taken the 30 tiny seconds to actually read, I said in the first lines I started this build log, no where did I ever state it was done. How is a build even done without any final pictures?

    How can we not assume it's completed when you post a picture of a dual system up and running - which I presume was your idea with the project? And I also read "started this project a few months ago" - which make us believe it's done you at the same time have the picture of everything mounted :p :)

    I did not want to be rude, and even less stamp on your toes! I am sorry! But it was kinda misleading.

    It's no where near done, my apologies if I came off a bit angry too.

    My main log is on OCN (I'm staff there) if you would want to go more in depth.

    So this is what a Case Labs XL-ATX motherboard tray looks ready to be mounted to another case and transformed into ITX :) One more of these to come possibly!

    The top has a tab with a spot for two rivets initially, but I had to chop that down. Along with this, I brought the whole bottom of the tray and expansion slots up to the last expansion slots height. This, technically puts me at 214mm. Once I'm done the second one, this case will be dual ITX with both a removable tray. I'm keeping the trays up to the size of the CPU cutout on these trays for cable management. I'm also still debating of the orientation of both of these. I have the choice between both regular, both reverse or one of both and have windowed side panels on both sides.

    The trays them selves are done, just a tiny bit of sanding left and the paint will come later on. The turquoise paint was only put on for drawing purposes :)

    It is indeed quite the mod, wait 'til you see what it looks like when I start modding the case itself ;)

    Alright guys, I need help deciding what layout I'll be using. I have my mind set on one, but I want to know what you guys think!

    Figured you guys would be interested in a bigger update! 5 hours of work = a new rear I/O panel. Only a small detail left, bonus points to who ever finds it! Also a bonus of my helper, she sunbathes more than anything though.

    So I started working on the front of the case, behind the P400's front panel. The front of this case will be turned into exhaust. A spot for both 140mm and 120mm fans for the top and bottom of the case. This is part one of the bracket I will be creating for the PSU and power splitter. The PSU mount I'm using is from a Bitfenix Prodigy M. The aluminium sheet came from one of the Case Labs trays I butchered. No sense in wasting that high quality aluminium! :)

    Only fools don't change their minds! Changed the power splitter orientation along with salvaging more Case Labs trays!
