    I did worry about messing with the lines but I have a spare little front panel if I decide I don't like it. Had to refix the connectors again - hopefully a little more securely but time will tell - am not that confident. As a compromise and as mine is on risers I did consider running it out the back and affixing a USB extender under the case - I may still do that at some point and I may switch the power over to the way you have it.
    Didnt have a spare PCI slot at the back as have my CF card coming out of one and the DVI out of the other (see earlier posts).
    Sad to hear about your HD - this happens occassionally with my CF based drives as well (or I tinker with stuff and then cannot fix what I have done) which is why I usually keep a backup image that I just write to an new card -that why I keep the card accessible at the back.
    Hope you haven't lost much.

    I could not bring myself to put the USB at the front as I felt it ruined the look of the Amiga 3000 inspired case and put them on a pci bracket on the back, but after using for a few months I can see a reason for putting them on the front, can be a pain to pull the case forward everything you want to use them. I did not want to attach the floppy power supply just in case it went bang it might take out the A1200 as well , so connected it to the PSU instead, maybe over cautious but I'd rather change a power supply and Rapid road than the 1200. Just today my Hard disk started given checksum errors all over the place and on reboot the Games drive is gone , looks like I'll be rebuilding it again soon, so bye bye 3.5" ide hdd
