I thought of the next mod for my case, which will hopefully be to put my Nomad Jukebox w/ 4 gigs of music into my case. I might pull apart the casing if I feel like moving the buttons, but most likely I'll just make a hole in the side of my case for it :D

Now, powering the *******...I assume that AC current won't work, so I can't just plug it into a molex. Any bright ideas for wiring the DC plug? Running a PSU cord through the back of the case was the only thing I could think of...

as far as i know the molex connectors are dc, i have an adapter to power my cd player from my hd connector, and it works fine. it requires dc same as an mp3 player would. [it really needs six volts, but runs fine on 5 or 7 volts, both easy to get fromthe molex for a hd.
