After installing the front, notice the bottom drive bays removed to facilitate cross flow ventilation

On the left is an overclocking "dashboard" as named by MSI. It came with the MSI big bang trinergy mother board.
It was ment to be an external hand held unit, but I will be installing it in the floppy bay. I took my old floppy drive
apart and used the bottom as a main support for three backets, one up-down, one in-out, and one side to side.

The grill on the left was cut from a new cookie cooler. The one on the right was from the side of a circa 1950 water cooler
that was refinished with epoxy primer, then basecoat clearcoat black metallic.

I spent a little extra time polishing the frame because it is up front and in your face.
