As promised heres a few pics of this (IMO) awesome AT case:
3/4 view, this side is more "sun kissed" then the other:
Rear view, this is where the party's at !:
And a few build pics:
Choosing an optical drive by color, my choice is in the bay.
Just hoping it works ! (spoiler: it did)
It looks better in real life, the camera exaggerates the difference in hue:
I'm adding a small extra fan (80mm from Fractal Design), i know its not technically needed but I like to keep my retro gear cool:
Front view of the fan, the case had a fan hole stamped already, just had to remove the blankingplate.
Fan is mounted on Noctua rubber fan mounts:
Added a little extra ventilation on the bottom.
Work in progress shown, looks prettier now.
I'll probably open it up more later and add a filter:
Up and running.
A whisper quiet system !
Screen color is very off in the camera:
The system specs are nothing special at all:
-ASUS T2P4 rev 3.1, recapped by me and generally loved.
-Pentium 200MMX running at stock frequency.
-2*32MB 60ns EDO ram, capable at running the tightest timings even at 75MHz FSB.
-Matrox Mystique 220 4MB.
-Diamond Monster3D-2 Voodoo2 12MB.
-3COM 3C905B-TX PCI nic.
-Soundblaster Live! 5.1 PCI, forgot to check the CT#.
-Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 120GB.
-Teac 524EA-B 24X CDROM.
-Unknown but working (after cleaning and re-lubing) floppy.
And BTW The "table" is a modded "IKEA BROR".
Moved the bottom shelf as far down as it would go, and the top one high enough that i can fit 50+cm or so tall computer cases between them.
