that would depend on the size of the screws you wanted to use. You generally clearance Acrylic as much as possible (you have to be very careful if you want to thread a hole through acrylic to avoid splitting it), and the metal is too thin to tap well also - so I'd recommend drilling a clearance hole through both pieces and putting a nut on the inside of the case. A dab or two of JB weld could even hold the nut in place inside the case for you if you'd like to make them permanent.

So essentially choose the bolt you want to use, make the measurement to the outside of the thread (the bolt's "clearance size" and drill your hole to be just slightly larger.

Since bolts are highly standardized here are a couple good references for bolts and hole sizes (if you want to tap/thread them, or clearance them) Find the diameter/number of your screw in the left column, use the drill-bit size listed in the clearance hole column on the far right.

Hi guys.. i just bought this case and love it so much.. However i wish to change the front HDD and Power LED to White LED... May i know which particular volts or amp of led i should looking for?

Moreover, i gt XSPC X2O 750 Bayres pump/res... this bayres comes with a blue led as well, and i which to turn it to white.. Anyone know the volts or amp of this led?

Do i need to buy a resistor for these leds? Will the psu molex supply too much current and burn the led? sorry im noob in electronics.. frown.gif

Thanks smile.gif))

Just as an addendum - you can tap acrylic if you have the tools, steady hands and patience (it's prone to cracking around the holes). However since the metal behind the acrylic is so thin (and therefor can't be tapped) you'll have to use a nut whether or not you tap the acrylic. Since you have to use a nut anyways, it's not worth the effort or risk to tap the acrylic, hence the use of clearance holes.

As a point of reference, it takes about 5 minutes per hole to tap 6-32 threads into 1/4" acrylic - it's is a very time-consuming material to tap because you have to be excessively cautious to avoid cracking it.

My guess is a AX 850 from Corsair with a Sleeved cable kit in white. (PSU from sig)

Fitting the fan controller on the front was fun, the bracket was too long, so I to hack it up a bit and then remove the USB 3 sockets as I already have 2 in the front of the case. I've put a sticker over the hole where they were for now, but will do something better with it later.

As for the fittings on the CPU block, I need them like this to get the tubing away from the ram. If I don't use those fittings, the tubing either goes over the ram, stopping me from taking them out, or I end up with lots of tubing being needed and possible kinks. It might not be the best looking fitting, but it's the most effective.






Have you but a fan in the floor of the case? and it looks realy nice thumb.gif please tell me the temps after... mine are under gaming cpu 55 clock set at 4,8ghz and gpu 42...i have the front fan and back fan on 50% the pump at 41%. set the speed with easytune 6 (use gigabyte sniper m3)

Just wanted to say hi and give props to the TJ-08 drivers. Was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO close to getting one in Jan, but I chickened out and got a full-size ATX board instead. Just couldn't find a mATX z77 at Microcenter that I was 100% happy with. If the Max Gene V had one more PCIe slot, even just a 1x above the main PCIe 16x slot, I'd of been happy. But alas, I went with the Gigabyte z77x-ud5h.

So, I went with the next best thing, the 'nearly' smallest Full ATX case I could find / tolerate. The Lian Li PC-A05FNB.

But damn, the TJ08 is just TOO sexy... wink.gifthumb.gif

The ASUS P8Z77-M PRO it's a very good choise for this case

Very close, it's the AX750 with a sleeved cable kit. I'm very happy with how they look, worth the extra cash
