Info: I took an old Packard Bell case I had lying around and made a few modifications to it:

Biostar M7NCG400 (nForce2)
AMD 1700+ overclocked to 2.2Ghz (200x11)
Cooler Master Heat Pipe Heatsink
Evercool Aluminum Frame 60mm and 80mm Fans
2x256MB RAM (266Mhz, CAS 2.0)
Integrated GeForce4 Video (350Mhz)
Integrated 6 channel sound
55GB total disk space on 2 hard drives
All incoming air is filtered
CPU Temp from 114F to 132F

The floppy drive is a 7-in-1 floppy drive that has slots for Flash memory cards. The heatsink on the CPU, which you can see sticking up out of the case's side, has a 60x60x25 Aluminum Frame fan made by Evercool. I love the aluminum fans, they really help to bring down the temps, they're quiet and the frame of the fan is also a heatsink.

This computer was originally 200Mhz, 32MB RAM. I had planned on eventually buying a nice case but this one gets little twirps all angry for some reason so I decided to keep it. lol

It was nice to replace that old ugly Intel sticker with a shiny new AMD one.  The reset button is my power button, still more work to do.

Theres an aluminum 80mm fan in the front that pulls air in through slots in the lower grey area.

The aluminum fan looks a whole lot better, although I had to cut on the case more and made it look worse.  If I ever find another case like this I'll use the cover from it and recut the hole.

Ok, heres the truth.  At first I had an Asus A7N266 MB and when I put the Biostar MB in the HSF was a little more toward the front.  As you can see I gave up trying to make it look decent. lol

I thought about putting the sticker on top of the Packard Bell logo but I decided to keep that original. It kind of ads to the irony. lol Someone once suggested having the logo painted real big on the side. That would get some REAL head scratches at a lanparty. lol
