Thanks for the help btw smile.gif

EDIT: Found some at scan! Yay!

EDIT:EDIT: Ended up buying a 3GB MSI Radeon Radeon R9 280X as well as the H110 CPU cooler from Scan.co.uk should arrive Wednesday!

Just wondering, how much did you end up paying for that R9 280X? With the whole mining fad the prices had jumped up in recent months.

Initially I was going to buy the Toxic as I it was just a tad over £300 however this was months ago... The toxic now being £380+. I payed £230 on Scan for an MSI version so pretty happy, I'll probably overclock it if I really need to but dont see myself doing that yet.

EDIT: just looked on Amazon... only 1 version of a MSI 280x selling for £475... Bloody hell!

£230 is not bad considering all the inflated prices these days. Enjoy your new parts!

Sup peeps. Been a while since i've been to this thread, but there are some nice rigs up for sure.

I have a bit of a dilemma. I am looking to replace the side window with one piece of Optix Acrylic. Does anyone know of a way to secure the window to the frame? I was going to use some type of velcro and attach it to the border of the case, but the velcro I can find is too thick, protruding the acrylic out too far from the case.

I was thinking of cutting the side panel to the border where the panel is flat, leaving the hinges in tact also.

Here is a picture of a prototype piece I was using. It's a little on the thick side at .080", but not horrible. If I add double sided tape or velcro it will stick out further than it already does.



I used the acrylic for my Prodigy side panel and it sits flush. I'm using vinyl tape to secure it for now until I can find some kind of replacement.

I forgot what post number it was, but someone posted a picture where they took the latches off the side panel and attached them to a piece of acrylic for a full side panel window...whoever did it didn't give us specs on how do to it lol

I think he wants the whole side panel to be made of acrylic though and not just replace the stock window.

Could you not use thin double sided tape, like sellotape but double sided? If that doesnt work you could maybe try a hinge on the back with 2 strong magnets on each corner which are fixed into the acrylic and attach to 2 corresponding magnets on the case? Actually could you not do that with all 4 corners and maybe halfway on each side for added stability? Just my ideas smile.gif
post #5849 of 8430
Well, I just attemped to drill some holes in my Prodigy window to attach to the case since there are 4 holes in the corners. What I forgot to do was tape the acrylic and I cracked it. frown.gif

Think I may just stick to tape... biggrin.gif
post #5850 of 8430
which loop should I choose? or will it be same temps in both cases? Snorkle.gif
