Case ideas

Heeeya everyone

right I got an old PC here I was given just to mess about with, I was thinking of doing something cool with it like putting it in the most compact case possible.

Any ideas?

(it's a normal ATX motherboard so I can't go too small)

Build the hardware, then vacuum form a case over it. Cut a couple of holes for the CPU/NB fan and robert is your mothers brother.

I like the idea of that. How about warming up Acrylic in oven then laying it over components,so it molds to the component shapes.

Mount the HHD on a PCI slot,mount the DVD drive in front of the PSU. Meaning shorten the case.
