    Well from amazon this dremel and set is £29.99 - that's $46.66 with the current exchange rate.

    better deal..One other thing about the Dremel tools, the 300 series(1.15Amps) isant as good as the 400 series(2.0Amps)
    Personally I would get the absolutely cheapest one possible and once you are sure you like it and can handle it without cutting off any fingers than get the good Dremel. (black and decker makes a less expensive dremel style tool as well)

    I bought this on Ebay a while ago for about $100US (reman) and it has served me well

    +1 on that, I broke quite a few [cheap] tools before realizing that :laugh:

    Make sure you wear goggles to keep crap out of your eyes. And especially with the cheap rotary tools, keep them pointed away from yourself because I've had the bits come loose and shoot out a couple times :eek:. Now I stop and make sure they're tight every few minutes.

    The PSU modding is just sick to say the least, but I'm still waiting for that Rusty Orange colour to be used!!!!! :rockout:

    Either way, damn good to watch your progress as usual, more pics please!!!!

    Can anybody tell me what I can do to reinforce this same Rosewill case. Basically if the left side panel is off, the case is very flimsy if I try to move it or just slightly twist it it's like Loma Prieta in there. Maybe I can attach a brace or just reinforce the joins somehow?
    Thanks.

    Thanks for the pict and compliment, welcome to TPU and the thread.

    I sent the case back to Steevo so the rest of the picts are on him. (time for me to get back to my Rosewill case)

    Is your mobo tray attached compleately?, there are rivets underneath, behind and along the top edge and in front.

    PS: thanks for showing how the Hdds in the stock place make GPUs almost impossible.

    MB tray seems to be properly riveted. I'm thinking the joint (see pic) is not the best. With the side panels on, the case is pretty solid.

    lol, you should see what the case is like without those little brackets..

    One thing that should help is a bar going from the back to front at the lower edge of the PS. A piece of alum angle should support the PS as well.

    kind of like the aluminus uses.

    It connects the back to the front and there are a couple of rivets that attach it to the DVD cage too. It makes the case very solid.

    I just took like an 40 mins to read through this entire thread, this is probably the coolest things i've ever seen on a forum. I'm new here and this is sweet GREAT JOB MKmods, it looks sick.

    Now how much $ do you want to mod out my case? lol

    Edit: Now off to set up a wireless network for a friend/customer.
