    Hello, I'm in the process of my first custom build (link in sig.) I have a few questions regarding the grounding of the PSU and motherboard. For the motherboard, i want to use normal stand offs with rubber grommets directly underneath the board. The stand offs will be screwed into aluminum angle. For the PSU I plan on using small rubber strips to cushion it from the aluminum frame (for vibration damping reasons.)

    Thanks,
    gimp

    Standard hard drives won't make the case any taller. Width is also not a concern as it has to be wide enough to accomodate the 15.4in screen. Laptop hard drives are simply to expensive. I am seriously contemplating getting a laptop dvd burner though. Thanks for the input.
