Yeah, I bet... I think the only thing I would have tried to change would be to enclose the sides with plexiglass or something...

I did have a version with sides but it had three plates, this one has two.

Interesting variations just by increasing the length of the bolts and adding other levels.

Never got around to it ...

These plates, I made some for ITX like in the pics and others for matx started out as techstations but ended up being used for something else.

I love your little metal plates that keep the computer together, lol.

I hate paying for cases, they're so expensive. I end up just reusing my cases a lot and have parts just lying around.

I never knew how expensive they were until I had to buy one, I actually sold an old case and PSU on craigslist for $15
