I guess it’s about time I showed you what I’m working with.
Here’s my Pi in it’s natural habitat:
And the glory shot. I’ve got a 3 TB HDD in there (mostly full of kung fu movies for watching in Kodi) with a print server for wireless network/internet access (more free USB ports, yay!), with a powered USB hub that sticks out the front of the case. You’ll notice there is a CPU fan, and a massive case fan. It’s super quiet. I’ve also got a power button for the pi and an off switch that safely powers off the Pi, as well as access to the power strip switch through a hole in the top. Everything is mounted in place with screws through the bottom. There are rubber feet on it to protect whatever it sits on.
It’s not meant to be pretty, purely functional, but it does a great job at that, thanks to everyone’s help here of course.
I’m using wireless Xbox 360 controllers, but my custom dual arcade stick, which is basically just 2 wired Xbox 360 controllers and arcade cabinet parts, also works with it.
