Mods:
my first cpu case mod, bought a standard stainless steel trashcan and basically figured out how to put all the components inside with cableties, nuts and bolts, and mounting brackets. still a working progress tough, 4 fans with led are still to be placed and also the samsung dvd writer which is to be placed just above the power and reset switch.

Amazing, I've never seen anything like that.... and where did you find such an attractive trash can? I'd love one of those in my office.
Only performance is lacking at this point, but the looks are superb!! 9/10

The temps in there must be big....Not to mention the dust.

I don't know.... I would think that with the two 120mm fans blowing cold air in there wouldn't be much of an issue.

Those two fans would cover the hole MB, RAM, and Video Card. Also, there obviously isn't much of an issue with air flow in and out.

I would think the dust would only be slightly more than any other case sitting on the floor.

He used straps and strapped the mainboard onto the trashcan...My guess is he used something to isolate the parts that make a connection to the trashcan.

hmmm i c cause if he used something like bubble wrap or saran wrap to keep it from shorting id agree w/ helas cause that would up the heat of the parts...not ambient...but the parts would be hotter for sure

ahhh, I see it now..... He used metal straps to mount it to the can, and then insulated where he mounted the board to it

I really don't care if it has a Pentium D. Anyone can spend $1000 on a high end CPU, modding your PC to look like this, priceless.
It looks like the MB is hold on to the trash can through the board's screw holes. So it would be pretty much like your steel case.

i used rubber moldings so that the board doesnt touch the can, and also electrical tapes to some of the little details of the components to prevent it from shorting out. note that this is still a working progress.. im still trying to clean the wiring and some other stuff. performance is not high end.. true... coz i still dont have the money :) but thanks for your comment guys. i appreciate it. please rate it.

10/10 for the originality, as for dust, i supposs it could get dusty but for the heat. its so well ventilated it shouldn't be a problem. you should get like a 250mm fan for the lid, kinda like the ones that they use in the thermaltake armors.
