Looks good that, very different. One of my local computer shops has their testing rig all flattened out on the wall, it looks cool.

lol  ;D

i had a testing PC screwed to a notice board like that, the thing was indestructible too, i probably replaced all of the power components on the board atleast once and it kept on trucking

who needs a case anyhow, mine is perma-open and i've cut the thing up more than once already... as long as everything is securely mounted without short-circuits and properly cooled, its fine
hell, i'd build myself an all-wooden case if i wasnt so damn lazy, getting the airflow right aint that hard

i used plastic tubing salvaged from spraycans to make motherboard spacers.
had to really craft the steel sheet psu brace.
any other fasteners are hardware store items, take a close peak at front usb mockup ;)
powerswitch is mirco contact switch from an trashed apliance or somewhat.
power and access LEDs are embedded and hiden behind a milky plexy screen...
normal woodscrews hold all, nothing facy excep the psu brace.
lacks pci brace too, wip...
