    Five Hours = Project Ca$hBox

    I had 5 hours of nothing to do last night, so I started and completed mod #29.

    I've been meaning to do a Mini-ITX Mod for a while now and chose a cash box as my case.

    The Cash Box was $20 at Office Depot



    I put the Mini ITX and PSU in to get an idea of how it'll fit



    Then drew out the I/O plate outline



    Then the PSU outline



    It seems thick at first



    But as you can see, it's one thin layer of aluminum and then an insulation layer followed by another thin layer of aluminum



    So that was fun





    Then I added a power button





    And took a hole saw to it



    Where I added an intake fan and a cool fan guard





    I added a single screw



    To attach the hard drive to the lid



    There you go, it closes just fine



    And it's Done











    BIOS work



    All I have to do is load XP



    Thanks for looking.
