Get some slotted PCI covers (helps a lot with airflow)

Normally I don't even use PCi covers.. lol.. But, might think about using them now.. I've found that the thumb screws that you buy from Mountain Mod work quite well with the cases screw holes. So, I'll probably order another set for stuff like the Removable Mobo tray and the PSU.. That way I don't have to use a flipping hex key to just take out the mobo! lol.. I might still use the hex screws for the side.. I don't know yet.. lol..


Also, I was thinking about it... I almost want to spend for the 3 bay etching one.. cut it to where I can have a "hidden" look to it.. Don't know quite right now if It's worth it..

Me neither (I am too cheap to pay for the slotted ones, lol) I figured you used them for the pict...(look cool) Beautiful work so far

Worth it?
after spending that much on the basic case, not to mention the hardware....whats an extra thousand here or there...

:roll: your right there... It isn't that much for it. I do like the etching a lot! So I may do it.

As for the slotted ones.. I don't see a point in having slotted ones and not having ones at all.. Just not worth teh extra.. lol

The only thing I don't like about gloss black/piano black is grease smears show up easy on it. My cell phone is piano black and god I'm forever wiping it with my t-shirt!!!

Maybe I should wash my hands more than 20 times a day!! :laugh:

Yeah, it's a pain.. I wash my hands 20+ times a day due to me being a chef... But, it'll all ways happen! lol.. I'm going to be going to get some car wax and do the case in it.

But, I'm done for the night.. Nothing really done to teh case. Got the front bay cover, and love it! Then tomorrow I get the fans and Led's from Jab-tech!!!!

some pictures to hold you off on! lol






I don't think I'm going to have the uv light up top.. It's going to be hidden by the psu.. I might throw it on the side of the rad, that way it's glowing down towards the connectors while their on the board...

Thanks D, I'll look into it when I go and grab some cheap wax..

As for the rad. I e mailed Sidewinder to see when it would be in, so waiting back for that, and I really am going to wait on buying that until I know about my res also. I don't get another day off til next weekend, so I'll order for it all to be here then.
