    can you give out some details of what you have stuffed inside that case?

    i hope your planning on doing a write-up for this because i bet alot of others would love to do the same
    no write-up. just by lookin at the pictures, you can figure out how i made it. its really easy to make. in my case i had a lot of spare computer parts laying around like screws, molex plugs and fans. just use a dremel to cut out the metal and make sure you measure everything so you dont any fitment issues. imagination is key with this type of case.

    just got my case and gutted it all out and started laying everything out inside. everything fits like a glove. i'm running a 2.5 harddrive so i can actually fit 2 side by side if i wanted. still need to pickup some stuff like fans, standoffs and other small things.

    where did you get that usb hub with the header from? i really need to add these 2 additional usb ports.

    thanks

    Very nice, I like the Mogule, lol.

    I have to say that your case is probably one of the best mods I've see. Not only is the execution very clean but it is well organized and fully function on the exterior as well (power switch, USB powers, etc).

    I notice you're lacking a DVD/CD rom. No big deal as I'm sure you don't need one or you have a USB one.

    The molex connectors, are those for power-out to external devices, like something you leave wired in your car for the screen/other or are those power inputs to the PSU?

    thank you. the dvd/cd rom is located right under my screen on the dash. the molex plugs are for main power for the m2-atx and the other is to power my screen.
