    Good luck with your project, careful with the center console if you planing to put a bare mobo in there, the speakers will blow (that is a fact, even having premium sound SYS like the RF they are cheap)

    I have all of the parts in except the M2-ATX power supply. It fried, so I sent it back and they are sending me another one. The computer is currently set up on a table with a 150 watt AC-DC power supply for testing. RoadRunner is installed with the DigitalFX skin.

    Set up on the table:

    Oh nooooo!! Please don't let this become another back and forth about pink foam! Then again why not? (Loaded question comming up.)

    Gee BarryWoods what wrong with the mobo being on pink foam, it's not conductive. Is it?

    I didn't think it was conductive.. I'll transfer it to something else just in case though.

    Yes, any pink foam that computer components come it are esd safe plastics. They are slightly conductive to dissipate static build up.
