I attend a few Lan parties and have to drag along My gaming machine as a well as a dedicated server.

My case mod idea is to run two mother boards one with all the gear as the main gamming machine and the other acting as server just using onboard sound and graphics,

The only protruding items would be the heat sink and ram dimms.

has this been done before and if so how did you pull it off

Do a search on google groups. I'm sure you'll find something. This is what I found:

This sounds really interesting. I'm going to toss the idea around later this evening and research cases.

My guess is this will probably require a "Frankenstein-ing" of 2 cases, along with transverse drive mounting and a way to split the case for access. I'll let you know what I come up with :P
