    Yet another project from me.

    this one will be a little more modding than the others.

    I am going to be modding a corsair 700d to fit my best friend the evga sr2 into.

    you guys are probably wondering how im going to do that but i will be showing you in this journey so pull up a chair and enjoy. :toast:

    pics soon.

    go through my megarig thread... there are 4 different projects in that thread.

    this is for not only the sr2 but any xl-atx board as well.

    this also isnt just my rig in another case.

    this is SR2 machine #8.

    the others are still alive and kicking it.

    So fits all along works at distribution.

    They get shit CHEAP if you work at a distribution facility. Not joking :cool:

    New-egg even buys shit from a distribution warehouse, which gives a low base price- and newegg just marks the price up so they can make profit on the sale.

    dam fits your lucky hahaha i wish i worked at a distribution with a mile long belt of computer hardware flowing and being packaged :toast:

    Unless im totally wrong i see :p

    I would have thought it'd be hard to take stuff from a distro. Isn't everything sold in bulk with fairly even numbering? Like if you only got boxes with a minimum of 10 cards in them and you buy one card, doesn't the whole lot get messed up and harder to sell then? I'd figure retailers would also want to buy in that same bulk quantity.

    got the tray assembly in today.

    began work on the case.

    first you have to remove the 700d's mobo tray and rear panel.

    just drill out all the rivets and it comes right out.

    Seen a video of someone do this on Youtube. It looked kinda odd, but right in the end. There was a 2cm gap all around and they had to use these brackets to hold it.

    Also had to but a hole next to the PSU so they could thread a wire for the 2nd PSU.

    See if i can find it.
