    very nice DaMulta.. I wonder if when that game was made if they had any clue how much more powerful comps were gonna be .

    Lawn furniture pads are very durable and comfortable.

    Weld-on is the good stuff.:rockout:
    there is also other versions of this type of cement easier to find locally
    its in the toy dept.:eek: in with the plastic models.

    Testors liquid cement in the black bottle w/needle tip.
    NOT the old stuff in the tubes(plastic cement)

    basicly a diff brand(rebranded?)of the same cement it is about midway
    between the 2 above in viscosity
    I last serviced a outdoor sign we used it on(ran out of weld on) at 7yrs.
    so I am sure it holds as well.

    in hobby shops you might find Tenax 7R or Amboid, both are water thin like the no. 3
    the key words to look for is "liquid cement"

    since this is my first post i gotta say what a great place ya'll got here.:respect:
    I'll get a pic of my mod in progress up here soon
    MKmods and DaMulta say thanks.

    ok as promised here are pics of my mod
    the idea was to make room in my cm690 for a removable
    watercooling tray by adding 6 inches behind the motherboard
    this allowed room for the hard drives there also, accessed thru a door on the rear
    it will retain the factory look on the outside and bring that look to the interior

    Wow, that case mod is pretty sweet looking man! really sweet looking!

    Now, I have a problem in thinking.. What case to go and get..

    What I'm thinking of due to me wanting a case with full water set up.

    Silverstone TJ-07
    MM U2-UFO Opti-1203
    MM Pinnacle 24

    So, what do you guys think? I'll be buying it in the next few weeks.. Just don't know which I should grab.. something different.. Which is making me lean towards the U2-UFO

    TJ-07. I'm just not blown away by the MM cases.

    DaMulta I like the progress. That just needs some snazzy graphics splashed across the exterior...something totally made up but that sounds and looks real :p

    I also like the rope lighting. I have some from X-mas that I was wondering how to use...

    Still somewhat a n00b, but learning (hopefully fast).

    Here's a link to a blog I used to update from time to time, it has my very first mod in it (Via C7-D based wooden box as well as some funny benchmarks of the thing - Like running Crysis on a Via C7-D 1.5Ghz with a PCI based 8500GT), as well as another mod I made (and currently am restoring):
    http://direwolf007.blogspot.com/

    My current project is in my sig (AMD Project Omega). Currently developing my abilities with priming metal cases, multiple coats of paint and putting a protective coat above it. My previous paint job did not last very long (lack of patience and a very poor choice of paint).

    I don't really have much in the way of experience to offer at the moment, but this will hopefully change with my next project (After the AMD rig I got something quite special cooking up).

    glad you stopped by Yukikaze.. welcome to the club...:toast:
    (I really enjoyed your blog on the mini ITX build, glad to hear a honest opinion)

    Cold Storm:
    I vote make ur own....but my next choice is the MM Pinnacle 24 (of those 3), I like that its made here in the US and it looks like it has the best cooling of all the options.

    Finaly i can fit my side panel again. After mounting the rad at the back i could not get the panel to shut anymore. Today my friend brought me some very thin cutting discs for my angle grinder and i cut a piece out of the panel. Came out pretty nice.

    I could grab two low end cases, and build my own. just the fact i don't have but a screw driver to do it all.. :roll:
    I'll be thinking, and thinking some more on this.

    Tech: I'm glad you've been able to throw that side panel on there man! Very Pro. Look to it. :toast:
