I dunno if you have these "council pickups" outside of Australia but what happens is the council in certan out a flyer notifying of the council pickup and what date. Then, you ridetimes of the year will send around with a screwdriver and a backpack and salvage usually the HDD and Ram from computers people have thrown out, and occasionly you find empty cases, but this is the first time its been an ATX decent one. I put my server in it and its running fine.

While you're modding, here's a thought. Flip your PSU.

Cut a blowhole for the intake. That way it is sucking in cooler air from the outside, giving you a cooler, and more stable, PSU.

Be sure to add an extra internal fan, or blowhole fan, to the case to help make up for the lost of the PSU's fan.
