So after a long hiatus, I have finally gotten around to almost finishing the PiSU.
I ended up ordering a 512MB Revision 2 Raspberry Pi for the mounting holes and also because the socket on my first Pi broke.

The first thing I did was to test mount the RPi by itself with motherboard standoffs screwed into the base.
Mounted Pi
There is a lot of flex in the CD case mounting that I used, not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing yet.

Next, I put the HDMI extender, and Power Supply back in, and also plugged in the Ethernet extender. There is *barely* enough space between the front of the PSU and the back of the Pi to fit the Ethernet extender in but with a big of wiggling and cursing, I managed to fit it in. I also plugged the USB cable for the USB hub in at the same time with a bit more wiggling and bit more cursing

Once everything was in place, I screwed the top back on and double sided taped the USB hub on top so that it’s easy to transport.

This is what it looks like at the moment.

Hopefully later on I’ll add some plastic plates to cover the fan holes and be able to mount the USB hub inside the PSU rather that on top and also mount the ethernet extender to the plastic plate.
