    I repositioned the HD's on top so that they are side-by-side just as Boddaker @ Gruntville thought of. Luckily I still had one drive left for the top. Now there are 4 on top instead of the previous 3; In total there are 16 drives on the case, thus far.









    I set one of the sides next to the case so you can see how it'll look when complete.

    Looks kick-ass. Definately a unique mod.

    TGS, instead of the exposed mesh on the corners, why not use IDE cable? Alternating between the light grey and the black IDE's between there would make a nice striped pattern, and add to the effect.

    Cool unique mod mate, i like it, it kinda looks "Mad Max-ish", like a pc all made from junk but works perfectly inside. COOL.

    An idea...why stop at HD's, id get loads of old pc spares to fill the gaps like circuit boards BIG old capacitors poking out here n there. It'l look wicked looking a bit battered.

    I'll be watching this one

    I maked off the sides so I could make some cuts. The screws will go from the inside throght the mesh and then into to the mounting holes on the drives. This way they'll be securely attached to the sides.







    After I attached the sides I set up the top to connect those drives too.



    Then I screwed on the nuts and cut off the excess.



    The top and sides are attached.

    Now to plan the front. I'm using 2 drives side-by-side at the bottom. I will also be disguising the power button.



    I was worried because I had run out of useable dead drives, when I found an old box!
