    Welcome to TBCS!

    I noticed you don't list a DVD drive or Blu-ray drive in that list, are you planning on adding one? Also, you're okay with having the radiator for the Antec 620 outside the case because it more than likely will not fit inside. How comfortable are you with cutting the plastic and also with soldering (if you need to make your own USB ports).

    Let us know if you have more questions!

    Tapping into the builtin "shut" sensor shouldn't be too hard; the tricky part will be locating it properly, and definitely soldering.

    Cutting the case is not hard. Mark the lines for the cut. Cut inside the lines on the waste side about 5mm away. Use a small file to remove the remaining material. Go slow and take your time.

    Can you show what the circuit board and front switch looks like on your DVD drive? There is a limit switch and the front switch that you will need to interface. You will also need an adapter board for the DVD drive. Yes there will be soldering.

    BTW, the first guy that you linked is good; this guy is amazing.
