It's back! Has anything changed in the last few months? I haven't found anything and I've been looking off and on for cases.
My friend was in the same boat and finally settled for a normal-ATX case even though he had his drives and mini-itx board ordered. Needless to say there is a ridiculous amount of space in the case.
When him and me were discussing it one night after a gaming session he said, well why don't you just make it out of legos (jokingly)?
And I stared at him for a moment and said... that's a ridiculously good idea. Then I went online and realized legos has a monopoly on the building block market and you can't just order a pail. Even shopping eBay you aren't going to find much there. They want to sell you their 'sets' with custom pieces and only a handful of actual building blocks.
This site was of specific interest: http://tfvlrue.wordpress.com/2008/06/25/lego-computer/
All in all I could special order the legos and design it myself on the computer before hand, but that costs as much as a regular case
for the little pieces of plastic.
Ideally it would have a giant 120mm fan in the back of the case, four slots in front (that don't necessarily need to be hot swap) for the bays, a spot for the mini-itx board and one slot, and then a PSU.
Anyone in a similar boat, has been, or has some new insight besides the $200 Chenbro case? It should be also noted that that Chenbro case DOES NOT have a internal power supply and uses a external one. I just saw that.
