    I just got the motherboard tray with open I/O from him. Then I cut I/O holes out of an acrylic sheet for Asus H110T/CSM and will hot glue it to the opening. If I want to change to a different motherboard, I can take out my customized I/O plate and build a new one for the new motherboard. At the same time, I got a $16 Dynatron T459 from eBay and use its heatsink (installed with M3 x 20mm screws, plastic washer and nuts since the original screws on Dynatron K199 and the push pins on T459 are too high).

    tyeh, How is it working for you? I am trying to do this now. Were you able to fit it inside the case with the dynatron t459?

    Sorry for the late reply since I don't get back to check this thread. Yes, I did use Dynatron t459 heatsink but you can't use the original lock screws and CPU cooling fan. I cut a 1/4" case acrylic sheet with Dremel rounding tool to be the back cover. At the same time, I put two 60x60mm fans on the back cover. IMG_20170515_160819523.jpg

    Just did a simple design with Thinkercad for the bottom cover. My son used Soildwork to design the backplate of motherboard and I printed them with CR-10 printer. Might change to internal bower fans and redesign the bottom cover.
