I've admitted defeat in my modding project, I just don't have the time (plus I'd like to get my kitchen finished by xmas). So I've put a few bits on eBay UK - 2 drive sleds, an optical sled and a front panel board. Check them out at:
Now for the case. I bought it new, slightly damaged. It looks like its been dropped and the frame has become detached from the case towards the back. When the door is fitted its just not quite flush.
If anyone in the UK wants this case (and cables + a few modding bits - mobo extender/ screws etc) its yours for the postage price (its 6.5 kg, so I reckon £11.40 Standard Parcels). You might be able to salvage it somehow, the door is in great condition btw. I'll take pics if you want, let me know. Its going to the tip if no ones interested.
