Here is my semi-final design for the project:http://www.zapwizard.com/proje.../pla...ns/render-1.jpg
What I want is 99% of the electronics mounted to a piece of wood that is connected to a drawer rail.
The rails will allow me to pull the PC out of the front and work on it as needed, then push it back in. The rails locks in both the closed and open position and doesn't open on it's own.
I have created a air outlet chamber for the radiator, that passes through the PSU, eliminating the fans in the PSU.
I also changed the fan in to a better "Pull" position, rather then "push"
The 80mm fan at the back will spin at low speed, just enough to pass air over the DDR and MB power regulators.
The extra holes near the GPU will allow for airflow over the GPU memory and regulators.
The green PCB's at the front will be for the wireless receivers for my keyboard and MX1000. Along with light and button electronics.
I hope to make the wood areas seemless, almost as if they are made of once piece, including the acrylic.
The faceplate will have a Matrix Orbital Red LCD, behind acrylic
(The faceplate will not be mounted to the front, but the movable part of the PC)
There are 8 decorative light points that will be provided via fiber optics.
There are 5 lights on the front, three will function as buttons:
DVD Activity and Eject
Power light and On/Off
Harddrive activity and system lights On/Off
Lastly the slot for the slot-load DVD drive.
I will be using QProx touch sensative IC's to power the switches, there won't be any physical movement.
