You can try with food container / some metal sheets / plexi / cardboard / fiberglass. That last is pretty cool if you know how to use it.

That's a good point!
My bro has wooden box and last time I checked it, there were tons of dust and he didn't know the reason of bad performance, as he couldn't see the dust without opening it.

..or get mb standoff's, attach to the screw holes of the BIX2, then attach more standoff's to the ones you just inserted.
Keep doing this for a couple of layers, then get a broad sticky tape and cover the gap with it. Looks fine and is done in 5 minutes, plus you finaly have a use for the masses of standoff's every good overclocker ends up with

Is it possible to just buy 2 from some place like DD? The only problem I can see with this is spacing.
