So here is the the plan...
This isn't the same case but you get the idea.
Front panels uses original clips to attaching. Clips are on the top and bottom so I cut the good parts from the panel.
I don't have pictures from cutting and stuff, sorry...
This is where I plase my HUB. On the hub, top left is wire from the front panel led. Hub stands on mobo holder pile.
First two usb-cables go to MSI mobo's rear panel usb-thing (the one with diagnostic leds). I.have done some modding to those cables so the are two A-male usb connectors on those cables now (internal connections, external connectors).
Next two cables are from the usb-ide adapters. The other one is with serial-ata support, also causes that pata devices must be on master-mode. That one is currently plugget to a DVD-rom.
Here is another pic from inside.
So the are 4 leds on the front panel (msi's usb&led -thing) but I'm currently using only one of those leds.
...and the PSU is always-on mode ;-)
5.25" IDE Swap bay for 3.5" PATA drive (there's the swap case on top left)
5.25" IDE DVD-Rom
5.25" iron plate from FS server with MSI's rear panel usb-thing
...and here's the ass :D
nise and clean, only AT-PSU (with passtru, cool) and usb B-female connector
This baby is 5 meters away from my PC. Very silent, very compact!
BTW, theese pics are taken by Sony PS2 EYETOY...
yes, I know, I need to get better cam ;-)
