    Default Thinner . . . . . . ATX

    I've been thinking for a long time to do something out there. I want to make a PC with a little something different going for it. It's hard to explain what the final product will be, but stick around it'll be interesting.

    Here's the victim case.



    I'm gonna make it real thinner. Watch this.

    There could be just enough space for a laptop drive and a laptop optical just in front of the PSU. Ventilation's going to be a bitch though. Nice idea...you planning to go for the well finished pro look for this case, or are you going with a theme? Or, as I suspect, are you just playing around with ideas

    Here's the shell for the UPS I won't be needing anymore.



    And it was cut in half too.



    I then realized that my ATX case wasn't thin enough...



    And the two joined together.







    And with the motherboard.



    Lot's more coming, including a whole lot of Bondo!!
