That's the way to go. If you did use threaded standoff holes, then you'd have to deal with quality control issues when the anodized finish intrudes on the threads. I've had to deal with that on the consumer side.

these cases are just about bomb proof. i bet you could almost hold up a car, with one under each tire.

Haha... not so sure I'd want to try that. :)

Thought you might like these renderings (kinda DeLorean-ish).

Probably the last iteration of my L1, really liking this fanless setup runs Linux Mint real snappy;

Mobo: Asrock Q2900-ITX
RAM: G SKill SO-DIMM 2x4GB 1333
SSD: Samsung 128GB
Micro SD: Mfactor/Bplus MR15 Dual SD Micro to mini-PCIE adapter 2x64GB Samsung EVO SDXC cards
Wifi:Intel PCIE x1 slot card
PSU: Toshiba 30W 19V Brick + HD PLEX 150W(had it lying around way overkill)
OS: Linux Mint

Decided to go with Centrino card over mini pcie version as the card has antenna connectors built into the pci bracket, lack of IO connectors for Wifi about the only shortcoming on the mobo. Wish they'd just get rid of VGA connectors already and go only DVI.

Loaded Win10 preview boot onto one 64GB SD micro and was going to install it on the other for a dual boot but Win10 install didn't offer the option so likely will get one more cheap SSD to try that on, still have a power connector left and 1 Sata-III. Contrary to Bplus the MR15 can be booted from, think it's more a matter of your BIOS/UEFI etc.
