Got most of the new hardware in, and did a test bench set up. I'm pleased to report that all works great. Awaiting monitors, which should be arriving today. Here is a picture I took of the test bench set up.

That looks like a top job, how did you cut the circular plastic ?

Thanks Freddy it was a lot of work and still a bit more to do :D
However as you may know already I had to RMA the tablet, so I can't take any more images till I get the new one.

The clear plastic is an acrylic sheet which cracks very easily when drilling or cutting, I used a drill with a DE-buring bit. The heat generated by the bit helps with the cut for it heats up the acrylic sheet as it makes it cut. I then used a dremel with a sanding bit to sand down any roughness and/or molted spurs.

I have most of the programs I need installed, but I have a few left to install either tonight or tomorrow. I also need to install my local server, but I'm in no rush to install that atm.

Trinity is enjoying her new vacation home, while I had to reinstall Windows 8 on the desktop. I got some more work done to the custom case and more images will be coming soon.

Edit: Trinity's vacation home (Samsung 500t tablet) got returned due to a capacitor popping on the motherboard, maybe next year we'll buy her a new one. A Surface pro 2 sure would be nice :)
