I was thinking more along the lines of a stereo type CD player, not one like that.

That is a very clean mod! Good job!

Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870

Intel Q6600 g0
Asus Maximus Formula
geIL Evo 2GB (2x1gb) DDR2
ATI HD3870 X2 or Nvidia 9800 X2?

i'm serious it runs perfectly fine the only cooling issue is the psu, power supplies do not like to be passively cooled. the other day i was running the processor at over 1GHz at stock volts....the cooling is fine .

tomorrow between studying for exams and lazing about on the computer i plan to:

grind and sand edges square and smoothe.
fix hdd light with a mod
finish rounding the fan hole
add front usb ports, probably below the cd drawer as it's the most accesible location (internally speaking anyway, the rest of the panel is near impossible for mounting them)
shorten ATX power cable
cable management
finishing touches (cleaning scuff marks, scratches, painting etc)

then i think i'll be happy to put this mod to rest. no animals were hurt in the production of this pc. a few fingers cut to the bone by sharp edges but no animals.

i honestly could use some suggestions as to how to make the inside look more proffesional though. the best idea i have is to spray the power supply black, remove the cables i don't need from the psu, sleeve and hide as much as possible the cables i do need.
