This is the best thing. You have done well, sir. Good work. I need to swing by my dad's house and maybe I'll do a build in a GateWay 2000 case. Depends on if its been binned yet or not.

Where's the overdrive!

Now you need to add a i7 6700K Overdrive processor! :P

Good eye, that's going to go on a pcb with a ribbon cable to be fake connected to the MOBO, as a tribute this PC's humble begining!

Oh there's plans for that. I want to strip the mouse it by sanding the paint where the glowing "G" is so it's perfectly translucent, mask off an IBM logo, and give the whole thing the beige treatment. Same for the speakers, and make a custom clip on bezel to make whatever monitor I go with in the future, look like a widescreen fascia of period correct IBM monitor.

As long as the case power switch is just a normal two-wire switch, that closes the circuit when pressed. Just cut the wires, and connect the wires to a compatible motherboard power switch connector. Polarity does not matter.

Beautiful sleeper build! Saw this on Reddit yesterday and I'm still amazed, especially that floppy drive SD card reader mod.
