I would like to install a guard on the back of my mid-tower case so that I can:
1. Bump the thing against the wall without damaging my connectors.
2. Pick it up and carry it to a LAN party without unplugging everything, without worrying about bumping it on stuff and damaging the connectors.

Does any such thing exist?

Post a pic of your case sides and back. Also list what you are looking to keep plugged in as well, and then we will have an idea of where to start. Then the build can begin.

how much stuff do you have plugged in? and wouldn't it be easier to pack up your keyboard, mouse and monitor and take a few trips to your car?

Denis: That would defeat the purpose of his post. He wants to mod, let him mod.

But I am still waiting for a pic of the back of his computer... Hello??? this thing on???

Maybe one of those fancy mesh silverware trays could be mangled into some kind of guard, if you tacked it on with a welder and had enough room to secure everything with plastic ties.

Um, just how long do you expect your rig to last if it gets slammed into walls and gets tugged on by dangling cables (which will be stepped on, etc.) :shock: ?

I'm lazy, I'd rather just unplug everything , good luck though. :twisted:

i agree about the dangleing of the cords. is it really that difficult to unplug a couple things? how much could u possibly have pluged in that would make it such a chore? take a xtra 20 seconds unplug ur stuff.
