So how am I going to attach the main board to the Lexan? Just like you would for yourPC, using standoffs. I don't know about you but I must have 50 plus of these things in my spare parts bins.

     Now onto the special part of my modded PSU. I will be using a couple of the wires from the old motherboard connector. One of each of the following colors will be used Black (common), Orange (3.3v), Red (5v) and Yellow (12v). Solder them to the ends of the receptacles and put some heat shrink over them.

     This is the reason for the plugs on top. I can use some plunger test leads and connect them to anything I want to test and try different voltages without having to connect them to one of the Molex plugs.
