So many fiddly bits
The fans are on and so are the grills. They do a great job of hiding the ugly holes cut in the lid, making them practical and aesthetically pleasing!
No fan over the third fan hole and for a good reason. The Thermaltake PSU now sits on top of the ASUS DVD-ROM, leaving about 5mm clearance between the hole and its own huge fan.
Motherboard's in; instead of using nuts and bolts to secure the GIGABYTE to the IKEA tray, I decided that it's just better to use some narrower holes in the plastic and let the screws make their own thread. This works well IF you don't over tighten the screws and strip the thread they made.
To mount the Seagate hard drive, I created an L bracket out of a leftover plastic binder clip and used velcro to secure the other side of the drive. It works like a charm.
The GIGABYTE motherboard and Seagate HDD is in place.
The ASUS DVD-ROM slots in nice and tight with the cool edging and is held down to the inside of the case using some velcro on the underside of the unit.
Yet another hole; this time an exhaust vent for the Thermaltake PSU as well as providing access to the plug socket at the back. It's rough looking now, but that will totally look better with some edging in place.
