Hehe.... It is because we automatically couple the number 64 with Amd, when we hear the term ATX. ;-) […]

Yup. The more I look at it, the more I love it. And it it a case with great expandability. I too can see the design of old Unix systems in this. However it looks more like cray and vax in one to me. Does not matter if it is modded. It will house a Commodore64 anyway. And for that small amount that I paid for it, then the lack of the corsair badge does not matter. I might look around for a C64 case badge. To see if they are avaliable somewere.
When I read ATX 64, I thought AMD! A giant case for an awesome project. =D I'm still looking for a Commodore 64. They're rare in my area and I'm always looking. : |

True C64's can be really rare in some parts of the world. They are fun little machines though.
And because original machines are so rare in some places, then it is awesomme that you can build one your self.
Like my ATX64 that are nearly completed now. Or you can build a SixtyClone or something else.
Thanks to my brother, most of my eighties was spent on a SX-64 and then a C64c. He sold them and gave me his XT to use when he bought a 486 DX 25, which then sent me down the PC path.
I look every day for a C64 on Craigslist and the closest one is about 11 hours away at eBay prices. The luckiest I got was my Amiga 500 -- my first one that I've owned, and after I found it worked, my first thought was why isn't the Amiga backwards compatible with a C64.
I showed up at a garage sale not even a mile from my house, and when I asked about old computers, I was told they had just given away a C64. :\
Anyways, I would love to build a ATX 64, but wouldn't I then need a C64 to harvest the chips? I've been following people on YouTube and the often talk about chips becoming more rare.
I have a 1541 drive, which has some of the same chips in it from what I've learned?
One last ramble, I hope to get my hands on a Mega 65! I'm saving for that for sure. : )
