That's pretty much what I'm planning, although I plan to use a pci card with an internal port. I want the front ports to be usb 2.0, as the back ones are 1.0. The pci card would also give me a few 2.0 ports in the back.

Although, I am curious to see how the first one, with the modified bezel, was done. 

Thanks!
