Good luck!

Sounds good thanks!

Good luck!

So some sound dampening foam should go between the case and the pump? Thanks for confirming the order biggrin.gif.

I knew it required the internal hard drive slots to be removed. Did you use a dremel?

Dremel is the most useful tool I've purchased for modding with the possible exception of my step drill bit.

Here's a good one. It is used for drilling symmetric holes. Great for tubing and such. Just add grommet.

Could you make screw holes with this or should I stick to a power drill?

Lookin good!

For that 250mm res, don't go with the phobya balancer. POS res. Leaks way too easily. I just picked up a Bitspower Multi-Z 250. Amazing so far.

Thanks biggrin.gif I was thinking of going with a frozenq 160mm uv blue. It comes in 250mm but I don't think I have enough room.

I second that recommendation. You can get smaller... I think Bitspower even makes a 50 IIRC. It's simple to work with and basically the same money for a nicer product IMO.
