SR-2 in a Stacker STC-T01
 
I am not exactly please w/ the stability of the bench table/tower I made for my Stacker so I've decided to pickup a used STC-T01 for $75 semi-locally. Pretty decent shape considering its age.

First I removed the stock mainboard tray as it isn't near big enough for an SR-2. Then I tape up the top and got it ready to cut the hole for the rad grill.

All fini. I am aware it doesn't match but the case will be powdercoated later on.

You get powdercoating done locally?

Funny a guy here locally is trying to get 300 for the same case lol.

Yes. Not exactly the cheapest but they do alright work if you give this explicit instructions. I expect the powdercoating bill of this thing is going to be north of $200.

Used cases are extremely hard to sell. No way is he going to be able to get anywhere near that kind of money for it.

it took me almost 4 months to find my 810...ended up finding it from some guy in the states..sold me the case, shipping ended up almost doubling it, but now it houses my quad quad...mine was in pretty awesome shape, one or two of the wheel locks were busted, but that was pretty much it for damage on mine
They're an awesome case though, looking forward to seeing how this goes

Got the majority of the cuts done in order to fit the Mountain Mods mainboard tray. This case has way too many effing rivets.

Mainboard tray mounted & secured. Pretty much ready to be dropped off @ the powdercoaters.

I'd like to thank matsta31 for this glorious looking block. Although I know I am going to hate mounting the damned thing.

I was pretty sure the block was going your way when it got sold.
And it sure does look VERY nice. Nice project you got there!
