Also you have to snip the plastic screw nubbin that holds the plate on the back of the controller. I wired it with some spare romex I had lying around, but stranded wire would probably make it easier to route the wires. Nice and compact though.
Very nice. I did a similar thing in an even SMALLER project box. I couldn't use the plate and had to cut the nubbin off just so the controller could fit inside at all. I used a single outlet since it's only being used for cooling and had to cut chunks of of the plastic screw receivers in the end of it to get the outlet to fit in the end, and I had to cut off parts of the outlet that were a little extraneous with tin snips.
The result is a very compact box and I'm quite happy with it. It was a lot more work than if I had used a bigger box though.
