Yay, another update. This time a big one (at least from outside). I decided to repurposed the original case to some other PC and therefore I needed transplant parts to a new one. And rather then go to some more appropriate one I went even more mental, and put all the parts into modern case with acrylic side panel, in this case (no pun intended) Fractal Design Focus G in Black. Current photos are in the first post.
With that, I found out, that my optical drive is too long and interfering with motherboard. I have shorter ones at home, but all of them are SATA ones, and I needed IDE one. So, find and bought one locally, and installation went without a hitch.
And last but not least, I finally installed SSD to the rig. I bought few cheap X25-E SLC SSDs, and they are great for retro machines. Small enough to not having LBA48 issues, and since it's SLC, I don't worry about longevity and endurance, not even little. To accompany it, I put 80GB mobile IDE drive there as well.
That's it for now. Though sometimes in near future, I'll probably replace that tower cooler with downdraft stock Intel (one with copper core), since VRM on this board don't have any heatsinks on it and I'll need to use that tower cooler in some other machine.
