What I think I'll end up doing after I get it all working it to keep the top, but to rehack the bottom so I don't have quite as many extra holes.

Yeah, definitely hack out a new bottom. You will need to cut out the ridge that you have the PSU sitting on top of, so it will drop into position.

What cooling for the CPU are you going to manage? There's a Pal video card GPU cooler that should work with that P3 and is VERY short in height.
What about me?

I'd hack up my NES if I didn't love it so much. I remember paying $100 for it when I was 8 (which was a ton-o-cash for me at that time). Ahhh...the memories. A WebTV on the other hand?? Hack away! No love lost...

You might be able to put the PSU outside of the case entirely. Cisco routers and switches do this often. Just put the ATX header very close to a hole in the case.

Anyway....that's just an idea, it would save you a BUNCH of space in that Nintendo casing.....

Perhaps, although the way it is now it does all fit in the case. Welcome to the forum btw.

Yeah, expect even more hits....

You guys were linked to on hardocp.com so its no wonder your hits are skyrocketing.

Once a friend and I actually took an old full size AT tower case and modded it to the ATX spec. The old mb mounting plane had big holes in it, right where many of the screws for ATX boards would mount, so aside from replacing the connector panel on the back we had to remove the old mb plane and rivet in a new one while maintaining structural integrity. We even gave it a custom paint job.

Anyways, keep up the good work.

I did this a couple years ago with a Toshiba Satelite T1900 486laptop, of course it was craptasticly slow, but it was pretty sweet cuz the floppy was in the game load slot, and the psu was on the mobo. If anyone wants to try a really fun mod, mount a micro atx board in a Milk Crate, I did one to control a wall of 32 IBM aptiva speakers and power 3 monitors with winamp visualizations forming a face filled in with speakers for a school project, I mounted everything in with zip ties. which worked out nicely indeed.
