Look at the inside of the door. You'll notice that the rivets are split. Take a flat blade screwdriver and put it into the split. Don't push too hard because the rivets are actually 2 piece. An insert and a collar. The collar itself goes through the plexi and the metal. The insert actually applies pressure to the interior of the collar locking it into place.

This setup gave me a huge appreciation for the simplicity of the rivets. When I replaced my window I thought I was going to have to break them out and replace them with socket head cap screws which to me are the business. I even bought some to do so. But I didn't have to replace even one of the rivets. biggrin.gif

Kind of the same way that a wall anchor works with a screw.

Most Rads run approximately a 6-32 thread pitch. MoBo standoffs are comparable to that thread. I'm sure you have a few standoffs laying around someplace. Take 2 or 3 standoffs stack them and thread them into the Radiator. Then to mount it to the case you use a standard Motherboard screw. You might have to add a washer between the radiator and the standoffs to keep them from busting the vanes, but you can do it for free. No need to spend money on something that you already have laying around in your kit. wink.gif

You could also take a small bit of pipe and cut it to length to use as a sleeve and paint it to keep it looking nice. biggrin.gif

Radiators on the back don't have to look bad. With a bit of imagination they can look rather spiffy. smile.gif

= < is a motherboard standoff

Radiator ===(standoffs) Motherboard Screw. x4 and you've spent nothing on mounting a Radiator to the back of your case exterior. Radiators are threaded in M3 and M4 standards. Both of which will accept a 6-32 threadpitch. Which is what Motherboard screws are threaded for. wink.gif

YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.

but you had them all along.

@maxextz... One is a BluRay player Mate. Also just in case you don't know this, having 2 Optical drives makes it easier to back up your media by copying from one drive to the other. I had two drives for that very reason. Once I get some more money I'll be purchasing another one.

I plan on having a second drive but since I don't use my optical drive but maybe once every few months or so, I will probably get the second drive as an external Bluray drive so i can use it between all of my computers. But I can see having 2 drives. As the bluray drives are much more expensive than a DVD drive, there is no use in wearing out the bluray drive with dvd's. So basically just use the bluray drive for blurays and the dvd drive for dvd's. It makes sence to me and if I wasn't using all of my 5.25" drive bays for fans and controllers and stuff then I might do the same thing.

I had the extra sata port on my mobo and already had the drive, so why not?

Edit: Is this thread being updated? I've posted my pics twice over the last couple weeks and still haven't been added.
