    Pictures of the inside of a Mo-co-so Black box case?

    I am thinking about buying a new case but I can not seem to find any pictures of the actual inside of the case and where the motherboard, PSU, hard drives and all that go. Does anyone have the case or pictures of the inside by any chance?

    I've got a couple pictures that Mo-Co-So sent me when I was considering their case and had questions. I agree, this info was not readily available, I had to ask for it, and there is no manual. I had to make a couple calls to tech support when putting it together. They were helpful on the phone, and the ordering process was easy, and the product arrived promptly. Just the fact that there is no manual, installation tips, or pictures on their site left a little to be desired. Heres what I've got.

    I'd say no. I had to get pretty creative with running the wiring around the boards. If your power supply was external, then yes, but if you use the M2-ATX like in the picture, then no. You could use an external hard drive (USB). I did get the end plate with the fan in it. Now that I look at it, if you are creative, you could possibly raise the power supply slightly, and out two 2.5" drives one on top of another. Hopefully SSD's because of heat. I've got the extra fan on the endplate, but there probably should be a little space between drives. I'm sure Mo-Co-So would not recommend that though, so use that suggestion at your own risk.

    I have a regular 2.5" drive and a SSD that I took out of its case so its pretty small now. I might be able to make it work, I am using a Voom2 case now and there just isnt much room and this is a bit taller. I really do thank you for all the help since their site made it so hard to comprehend how things get placed.

    By the way I am in Columbus ohio as I see you also are from ohio

    Yeah, things might get a little tight around the ATX plug if you raise the power supply too much. I agree, they should post some of these pictures on their site. A manual would be nice too. Just be sure to tie down your cables neatly, to help with airflow. maybe consider the extra fan.

    I depinned my atx cable and made it the exact length needed along with all the other cables and what not so it should help on airflow quite a bit.

    Does anyone know exactly how to use the pair of two pin audio connectors that go to the RCA jacks that are part of this case?

    My MoBo has an SC97/HD audio connector on it. Can these two little two pin connectors be plugged into my motherboard somehow or do I need to replace it with the proper connector?

    So far, random experimentation hasn't gotten me too far.

    On mine they plugged right in to the Front Panel Audio Header. My Gigabyte GA-E350N-USB3 has a 10 pin front panel audio connector. Default is the HD Audio. Pins 5+6 (5+ and 6 GND) are right, pins 9+10 (9+ and 10 GND) are left. The little tails on the RCA connections on the back panel of the case plugged right in to the motherboard. The fun part was then using Windows to get the right sound out of the right port. As I remember it was not that difficult, but it was not overly easy either. It took a little fiddling, and that was several months ago.

    I do remember loosening the nuts that hold the RCA jacks and rotating them to better fit in the case, and to make the wires reach the plug better.

    jhornbr225, do you remember if you set it for HD audio or AC97 to make it work?
