    Looking good bud. I think you'll be fine without risers with a 1230, mine was always 100% stable with the trapdoor closed. If you're worried you could fit a small fan to the reverse of the card where the CPU is. Looks overall like a great solution, look forward to seeing how the CD drive all fits in. Cable tidying is my nemesis too, my Tower needs a bit of TLC in this regard. Anyway thanks for sharing

    Grrr - bloody amazon. I ordered the correct slot loading slim line DVD but what they delivered was not only not the right model but not even a slot loader. Oh well, that has gone back to them in the post today and I have ordered from elsewhere but it wont come till late this week.
    More time to focus on getting the back panel finished.........

    Getting extra excited now. With some help from Stephen Jones the floppy disk is now aligned, just waiting for the slim DVD to turn up later. My package with some extra cables from Amigakit turned up as well! Will put it all in the next post. In the mean time am looking at pulling together something to screw my USB and Ethernet connectors into.

    Indeed. it was more as a 'because I can' kind of project. If I can sort the drive tray alignment out then hopefully the rest will be finishing touches and tidying up - I can hang the USB and ethernet cables out the back whilst I look at options for those.
    I decided against putting the CF card out the front as I didn't want to mess with the clean lines, although I may do that in future as I have a spare fitting that I can butcher for that, and currently the CF card is taking up a PCI slot.

    Looking good, as you say just cover the LED slots with a dome badge and you're done, you want the LEDs on the computer surely?
