    I'm thinking about paying my old neighbor a few bucks to sandblast the Sniper logo on my side panel window. Anyone know if you can even sandblast 1/8" polycarbonate?

    Here's what would go on there:

    I like the look of that R4 alternative and side panel hum is caused by flimsy panels

    Yeah...etching, with the guys sandblaster. I'm sure there are a few different tools you could use to etch something. Here's basically what I'd want on there. It took only a few minutes in Paint to throw this logo together, but I'd make sure the measurements on the final version were even and all.

    Yep...can be done with etching...or a lot of attitude. Get in touch with CyberDruid....I think he might be able to hook you up. :)

    Sounds like a loose side panel or maybe airflow is being restricted funny.

    I removed the mesh my CM 690 windowed side came with, and replaced it with a fan grill. It helped quite a bit. :toast:

    take a steel made standard case, and mod it to your needs, that would totally fit in your budget, and would probably look very custom, if youre common with craftsmanship :)
    not the usual suggestion, but it works! :D

    thermaltake V3, bought one for a friend and I was expecting a cheap feeling case. but its really solid and sturdy, plus has nice airflow. CAN fit any cooler I've seen too
    I guess thermaltake is better than I thought, I'm getting one of those in a week or so

    IDK about the price there but should be around 40$

    Its a great case for the price. I'm going to build into it for my GF's rig most likely.

    I did the same with my 590. That grill is seriously restrictive.

    Yeah, and if you put a R4 in that spot. Get ready for some annoying air restricting noises. Sounds like a car window barely open at 60MPH. Soooo annoying. (Mine did this before I got a fan grill, now it sounds normal. Yay!)

    Perhaps, but it's very narrow. I bet large tower coolers don't fit well.

    Yeah I bought a V3 case for $40 as my 2nd rig (cruncher) and for a cheap case it's not that bad.:) My only con is the little too no space at the top of the mobo.
