also is the lcd in the least bit affected by any of the (possible) magnetic output caused by the optical drives, psu, or mobo?
is it safe to place the lcd in that close proximity to the rest of the system, in terms of magnetic safety, without magnetic shielding?

:thumbsup:  :thumbsup: Dude, that looks great, but I had an idea, what if you took it to a place that does custom car interiors and had them fab up a carbon fiber frame for yor monitor so it looked like it was molded into the top of the case?! That'd be pimp. I've always said there aren't enough carbon fiber mods out there.

As far as I understand electronics, LCD displays are not affected by EMI, And I'm not sure but I don't think they emit any either.



EDIT::
And I have to start looking at timecodes, this thread is almost a year old, LOL

How did you combine the LCD and motherboard power supplies?

If you look at the 2nd picture in this post you will notice that they were not in fact combined.

how would you combine them like this

canibalize a dead psu for the power plug thing and then put that into the side of the case with the power running into the 2 psu's inside.  that way i would only have 1 cable.

?

sorry for bringing it back up, but I just found this forum (kicks ass btw)

I'm building a briefcase system myself and I'm going with a similar idea of having seperate PSU and monitor... there's a hardware store in town that does a split kettle lead (so 1 plug to 2 PSU/PSU and monitor lead), I'm not sure how happy my college is going to be when I show up with this, but sod em:p


Modnut, thanks for going through this like you did, it's helping a hell of a lot:)
