Quick note on the power connector, you could make use of an XT60 style connector. These are commonplace in remote control hobbies and are able to handle up to 60a yet they aren't overly big. There is even now a panel mount version of the xt60 connector which would be perfect for fitting into a console that required high power input. Here's a link for some: https://au.banggood.com/AMASS-XT60E...-all-1129&ad_id=400330096020&cur_warehouse=CN

There's a 30a version which is half the size too but they are much less common and I've never seen one that was designed to be panel mounted so I'd just stick with the 60's personally.
if you want to go with a xt30 , you can actually print a mount.

The XT connectors are nice, but they don't have clips or anything to secure them (granted they do hold pretty tightly, so you may not need one)

I guess I will go with the GX20 type^^

Right now I'm struggling to find a good cooling solution for the CPU/GPU tho. I was thinking about getting some laptop coolers, but it's hard to verfiy compatibility without having them in hand.

Thanks for the links! But I need a whole cooling assembly with coldplate & heatpipes & fins, also it needs to be powerful enough to cool ~ 80 watts of TDP.

I just had to add two 10k ohm ressistors from the common grounds to the standby voltage, and know all the buttons work when the pins are shorted to ground! Know I have to check which buttons I can use later, do you guys have any recommendations for some nice switches for all the buttons of the PS3 controller?
