I think I want to mount the motherboard on a thick (2 inches?) slab of aluminum. I'll put the standoffs on the aluminum rather than using the Lian-Li motherboard tray like I originally thought. I'll build a bracket to hold the PCI/AGP cards.
-Still looking for something to hold the optical drives and floppy.
-I would like a hard drive cage from one of those Xaser cases, to get the quick release mounts. Any idea where I could get the hard drive cage that the Thermaltake Xaser III uses?
I also want to mount this whole thing on a motherboard arm so it will reach my desktop for normal use and can be moved when I'm switching out monitors or cleaning house.
