Since 2 years, I'm the owner again of a 486DX2/66VLB. The computer is just perfect for the games I want to play. But I think the case is ugly as hell. I don't have a picture, because I ditched it a week ago.
I ordered polycarbonat to make a see-through case. I know this is Vogons, but still... is there room for sharing the making of the case here or is it blasphemy ?
In a lot of cases, once you open it, it's total chaos. The motherboard is burried beneath all sorts of cables and bulky hardware. It's my opinion that the hardware itself is absolutely worth to be seen !! That's the reason why I got rid of the ugly case and was planning to make a custom-made one with minimal cable-clutter. I would have thought that more people would want to do that, but I have yet to see those projects (or I must invest a lot more time in digging the forums).
(I know there are cavets for using polycarbonat, but the project is still a go... only been waiting 2 months now for the polycarbot to arrive due to some pandemic that happens to roam the planet...)
