My my, that is one beautiful build. I must say I am very jealous. I have been waiting to start my mod for some time now. I have a few questions if you don't mind. First off, how did you manage to rig up the front panel to support USB 3.0? It looks to me as if you modified the original panel to 3.0 hubs but kept everything else original, i.e. power button and firewire. I know there are some Chinese knockoff front panels floating around that are supposed to be drop in replacements that support 3.0, is this one of them? It's so clean :thumbup:

Secondly, how did you manage to affix your mobo to the case. Did you JB Weld new standoffs or buy a Mountain Mods mobo tray or something? I'd love to see some WIP pics if you have any.

Also, how did you acquire that I/O panel for your mobo, it look custom made. I used to have a guy who worked CNC and was going to make me one, but I no longer have that connection. Yours fits like a glove and I'm dying to know how you made it.

Keep up the great work, thanks for sharing.

One of the few great looking case, really nice job. Could you make more photos I/O panel and power supply bay?

Can you go into some details about how you got the hard drive bays to useful? Did you use new sata cables or did you use the old ones from the pro?
