    Removable side panels are now available:

    Panels come with either two 120 or 140mm fan hole cutouts in each side/short panel, and optionally with three 120 or 140mm fan hole cutouts in the front/long panel. The back of the case remains open.

    Dear Rich,

    Thanks for the awesome 4P rigs. They help me run the site more effectively and work great! Made a post today about them.

    Regards,
    Patrick

    Finally! A simple, inexpensive 4p/SWTX size tray (made entirely from 15mm square extrusions) that can be stacked.

    The tray has room for one SSD/HD.

    Added an inexpensive tray for those mining with multiple GPUs connected via ribbon cables:

    The GPU support beam is included with this tray.

    All of the lighter-weight trays (15mm extrusions) are now stackable with an optional set of posts for $5.

    Here’a a pic of two stacked BTC/LTC “mining trays”:

    You can now safely mount two PSUs to the mining tray:

    Smexy!

    I will have to keep that in mind for when my GPU Folding farm expands further.

    Mining trays can now be purchased with extra tall posts so two trays can be stacked at the perfect height in order to be cooled by a standard 20-inch box fan.

    Spots, would the new box fan mounts hold a SWTX board? Or are they strictly for ATX and below?

    This might be my Christmas present to myself.

    Yes, of course. These t-slot extrusions are very modular, so it very easy to attach a do-dad/thingy/fan mount where ever you want 'em. :D

    Plastic end caps are a new option for the trays made from the smaller (15mm) extrusions:

    The mining trays (actually, all of the trays built from 15mm square extrusions) now ship with plastic tabs to fasten the PSUs directly to the extrusion:
