    Big thanks to t_ski for the rails needed to mount the drives. The rails worked nicely for the WD250Gb hard drive. I just had to perform a small mod of cutting the end tabs off so that the side panel would fit correctly to the case. Unfortunately the rails did not work with the optical drive cage, :ohwell: but I may have a solution without the use of mounting rails for the cd drive.

    hdd mounted in cage with the rails from t_ski's old Dell servers :toast:

    Cool - glad the HDD ones worked for you. Too bad the DVD ones did not. :(

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Are they dell drive rails? If so I have some of those and didn't even think to try them. I have optical drive rails just not the hdd drive rails. I have made a work around for now.

    Longest build ever! :laugh: It's been hard to find time lately, anyway here is some work on the cable management. Since this case is older it was a bit of a challenge to work with and I lost my dremel somewhere so I couldn't cut any holes for easier cable routing.

    All that is left is finding a molex-to-6pin adapter for the 9600gt and installing the OS. Specs will be listed on final post, stay tunes.. :)

    No, I was just going to stick with the 8600, but we ran into an audio and screen resolution issue on his hdtv. So I think it would be best to find a newer card that supports hdmi, so it fixes both problems in one. However I might just find a card that doesn't need the additional 6pin power source. We will see what I can find for cheap. :p
