Default Case modders dream....

I came across this case a while back, it's an old case we had lying around at work, and I still haven't had a chance to do anything with it. It is freaking huge!! It's 26 1/2 in. tall, 8 1/2 wide, and 17in. deep. It's a monster. I am still trying to find a replacement panel for the top and the front bezel, but so far I have found nothing with the same dimensions. If anyone out there has some old scrap parts laying around that fit these dimensions, let me know. Also, I'm still thinking of some ideas for this thing.....





Here's some other pics of it.

Looks like Two ATX Mid towers stack on top of each other.

I believe it's an ATX form factor. It has the layout in the back the same as my other cases, but I think some of the standoffs for the motherboard may need to be moved around - I pulled a dual-AMD socket 462 mobo out of it.

You could also just buy some plexiglass and cut it to fit as side panels

ya or you could paint the plexi glass, or why not become a super modder and fabricate your own bezel and top.

It's an ATX case but a full tower. You could a lot of stuff with that.

Well, I found the company that originally made the case. It looks like the one I have is the previous model of the one they are selling now, but they sell individual parts, including the top and front bezel. Here's the link - the only problem, I can't tell if they're still in business or not.
