oh in that case (pun pun), if you are going to do a pick up, you should get it for about $40 cause shipping was $17 for me.

chuffed, lul.

Looking forward to seeing you in other threads, welcome to OCN.

Edit: Oh... and go for SP3 I find that the 150 Meg install was worth being able to type in 'shutdown' in cmd promt.

I also made a cover for the bottom fan grill to give it a rounded shape instead of the sqaure shape it is stock to match the top one. I'm deciding if I want to keep it the way it is and put a fan controller in the last bay in between the fans or move the top fan up one and put the dvd drive and controller in between. Now I just need matching fans. Heres some pics:





I think it's better if you add a fan controller on the top bay and the ODD in between fans.

Hey Krame, when you cut out the honeycomb grille on the front, were there any downsides? and does it provide any better cooling? also does it bring in more dust now? , im just curious and it looks great and i might try it .

also, sorry for double post here my edit button is playing up, has anyone got any solutions to the noise that the side fan makes? i think its caused by the way that air is drawn in becuase of the shape of the grille, but i could be wrong, it just seems annoying that i get this bad noise from it, ive tried filters ect. but they looks ugly and reduce airflow, although they do work . Im thinking of getting some silverstone or antec fans and the increased airflow may make that noise worse, which is why i ask this.

my sidefan does the same... kinda thought it was a bad fan though. But it's not THAT bad. It's still pretty quiet, it's just louder than the others.
