I was hoping to see yours in here terminator2k2, that's got to be the most impressive DIY case I've ever seen. I like that you've soldered to the USB pins, it looks much tidier than using cables inside and every mm of room helps.

I'm undecided what to do with a case at the moment. But I did take apart an old'ish SSD I have to see just how big the internals were - lots of space saving to be had if you do that :-)

I like the internal connection that doesn't require additional cables for the USB board.

@crystal - all connections on the USB hub are soldered underneath for neatness as using the usb plugs it was getting really tight, this way i can even fit a usb HDD in there once i require the room.

@taw6 - i dont have any pics of the underneath, but its just a bunch of wires soldered to the usb/power headers

@mmmonkey and trazome thanks for the comments, i did take a pic using the usb connectors, it was starting to get crazy tight in there, plus i didnt like the usb cables being bent nearly 90 degrees

Yeah, the official case is very nice - very clever use of PCBs to an alternative purpose.

Edit: Just saw your reply, very cool.

I am so confused, how is that USB 2.1 being powered? I don't see it connected to anything?

@terminator2k2

Some more info about the led buttons you used and the wiring of them would be greatly appreciated. I am currently in the process of installing my Mister into an Arcade 1up cabinet. I plan to add the user interface buttons to the front of the cab. I assume you used the 5v versions. They come in a few types as well ( momentary/latching etc). Any extra info would be helpful. Your case is one of the nicest I have seen. Thanks.

MiSTer Specs:
Noctua NF-A4x10 Fan (really recommend)
SDRAM XSD v2.5 128MB
I/O Board v6.1 XL
SMS/Genesis SNAC
Retrobit Saturn Controller
I have a USB to PS/2 adapter so that I can use my old Microsoft ball mouse for Atari ST :D

The case is an acrylic case from zerohimself. I love the look of it so much. In person, it looks as if it's glow in the dark. Obviously I had to get a nightmode shot in there! :lol:

I have the official case as well but do use the external cable to jump power to the USB module. How does it connect up internally? I'm sure something could be rigged to accomplish it in mine as well. Thanks!

This is my latest print. The files are available on Thingiverse. It's a combination of Porkchop Express's (MisterAddons) "V2" top, and an extended bottom so it contains the complete stack in one box.

You mean internal splitter? Yes, we use the Power Y pin to bridge inside. One cable will make the job.
