    Yeah, I will say that I've gotten a few things from Sidewinder and the prices are great, and the service is top notch.. just the bad thing... Their popularity makes most things out of stock for quite some time.. grrr.. I mean, yes, it happens at other sites to, but I don't mind spending a few extra bones for going to performance pc's...


    Well, I got a look at it... I think I might go Astray for side, and

    Throw a coat of car wax on it, it smells good, will help protect the surface and will help to eliminate the fingerprints...

    bro, I had that happen, I emailed Gary, and he had the item, just that the site wasn't updated. Try sending him a email when you see something out of stock. Usually he has some laying around.

    All right, bought the fan's, fan grills, and led's for behind the mobo tray. now, just the water and I'll be ready! Hmm, well, I guess I will be using the two switches that came with the case. One to turn on the mobo lights, the other for the uv lighting.. Still will use the switch box.

    I'm sorry.. but no one is going to know the res.. I showed JR a sample of what the guy "was" going to do.. Nothing like it now even from what JR saw.. lol.. But, JM I took your thoughts on your build. I have 3 led (7 leds each) lights to line the mobo at different places.. lol

    Now, since I was thinking of getting grabbing this for the hdds.. gotta grab two when I do..

    They mount to the side of the HDD and you just slid em in a 5.25 bay (witch i think CS should do and loose that HDD rack sn use those fan holes for another rad) the mounts also have thermal tape on the side where the HDD goes. Keeps my Vilociraptor @ sub 30c and quiet as hell. I love em.

    I'll take a picture of how mine is so you guys can see.
