I want to build a custom case. Is there a good electronic reason why cases are built of metal (other than device grounding)? I have a vision of a picture frame, hanging on the wall with the 'guts' visible and mounted flat using PCI risers, round cables, colorful, lots of air flow etc. Maybe a remote power brick. Maybe a TFT monitor worked in to clear the desktop. Wireless keyboard and mouse. Anyone had any experience with this? I have a well equipped shop...

Check out www.pimprig.com There might be some stuff there that may help point you in the right direction. I've seen other stuff on www.mini-itx.com as well. If I remeber any other sites or forums I'll try to post it.
I read the no-case thread before I posted the original message. I was glad to see I'm not the only one sick of "the box". There's got to be a better way...I see you found one of them. I will probably wait until after Christmas to build it, when the componnents come down in price. I'll post a pix of it when it's done.
