Update: Added rear panel used Michael's rear panel as the cut out, added DVI and two additional DB9s as optional pop-outs at the rear, still sticking with the cartridge at the top aligned directly with the socket at this stage, tweaked the design slightly to accommodate the cartridge slot.

For those that were following my case just an update that I 3d Printed a draft of the back panel to ensure the ports aligned and that the pop out panels worked.... and it did, perfectly!

The USB connector was 100% that was the big test, the pop outs worked as designed, and I placed my RGB connector from the Sophia in one of the spare DB9 pop-outs, holes aligned too! Im adding three DB9s now in case someone wants 4 joystick ports and the Sophia running.

 

Just waiting on some new printer parts to trial a print of the whole case.

Add RGB DB9 next to DVI pop-out, I also indented around the USB port.

Just wanted to let everyone know of the sub-site I have chronicling my 1088XEL build in a Apex MI-008 mini-ITX case and the modifications I've done to include extra stuff.  The website is still under-construction, but it is workable.  No downloads as yet.

Has anyone modified one of the 3 DB connector openings on the back of the H80 case to accept the DVI connector from the Sophia DVI video mod? The rear panel I currently have doesn't have an opening for a DVI connection so I am trying to figure out how best to proceed. I am considering attempting to Dremel one of the existing openings wider.

Someone (I don't remember who?) did what you are suggesting and it came out very nice. Check the: 1088XEL Atari ITX Motherboard DIY Builders Thread.
