In recent days, I found a case for sale at an attractive price, I perfected the purchase and used it to put inside one of the many PCs that I fixed (long ago).
In addition to the case there is the floppy reader, currently it is not yet connected, it is there to fill the hole, but I should have a floppy drive cable (34PIN) aside, obviously I will connect it later, for the moment I have no need to transfer files via floppy, I don't think I will need it in the future either, so if I need it for other older PCs I could replace it with something else more useful.
The case is a CoolerMasater, model if I'm not mistaken Centurion 5 or S ?, inside I mounted a Core2 Duo E6750 PC, Asus P5N-E SLI motherboard with 4GB of DDR2 RAM, XFX GF9800GT video card, if I remember correctly from 512MB of RAM, 120GB Kingston HD SSD in which I installed a WIN8 (can't remember which one).
On the case there are two USB ports on the front, one 1394 and a couple of audio ports, in the video card instead there is a DVI port and one to connect an HDMI cable, no VGA ports, but for the old monitors I solved it by connecting an adapter VGA-DVI.
At the moment due to busy schedules, I don't have time to bench, but I hope in the future to find the time necessary to do some tests.
That is a great system you built. That is indeed a CoolerMaster Centurion 5 that's one of my all time favorite cases.
