Yea,... I am happy with it. I might not try and cover it up. I kind of like the way it looks. We'll see.

Ok,... here's what I got done the other day.

My EPower Tagan 480W PSU. This thing is heavy as hell. Thats all I have to say about it, atleast right now.

Image

Inside. Nice HUGE heatsinks:)
Image

Looks like I have to do some desoldering to get the power connector and switch out.
Image

I got the power connector free. Now it's time for the switch.
Image

Quick question,... You see the two big globs at the bottom. The one on the left is touching the two little pins and the one on the right is not. Does this matter? I dont think it does but what do I know:)
Image

Removed.
Image

Is it me is this some sloppy soldering?
Image

Here I am going to cut out the bottom the case inside the taped area.
Image

Done. I cut it out because I am going to mount a bracket plate there. Surprising enough,... the case is still sturdy and this is without the sides on:)
Image

PSU mounting plate cut to size.
Image

This is where it's going to go. Now,... I think I might raise it up off the bottom of the case using a couple of washers. This way air can get out through there. Either that or I will drill holes or cut grooves in the plate where there is free space.
Image

This is how I will probably have it arranged.
Image

I have to figure out what I am generally trying to accomplish before I go any futher. I will draw some diagrams.

Man, this is looking great. You really are a source of inspiration for n00b modders like myself!

Which reminds me, I gotta get my Christmas Wishlist together!
