If I made a res out of an alcahol bottle, it'd be a 750ML bottle of Carling Black Label. The amount of hilarity that has ensued from drinking that beer is indescribable.

IM GONNA PUT SOME USEFUL INFO OUT THERE, if this does not pertain to you please disregard!.... buttkick.gif

If you are interested im my builds and are thinking of doing this yourself there are a some very important tips and tricks you should know....

1st: Measure once, Measure twice!: Always double check your work!

2nd: Use Metric tools when possible: All metric tools meet the standard of mm, cm, or m, and they are way more precise than that of Standard stuff like Inches(") and feet(')! It is ok to use both as well!

3rd: Do Not Mix Measurement tools!: This goes for anything that measures, like protractors, rulers, gauges, voltmeters, meters, and anything else you can think of lol. The reason being is when making precise cuts the measurement devices used have a very small offset in there accuracy and when used in quantity(ex: 30 Inches/mm) can actually produce a major offset or error in cuts!

4th: Measure both ends: Your measurements should be made from "Out to In" and from "One Plane to Another": What this means is your measurements should be checked, marked, and made from both sides for accuracy. Al marks should intersect and meet in the middle of the piece and be marked accordingly for accuracy....

5th: Cut to the Inside!: You should always cut to the inside and mark to the outside of the measurement: This means that your blade/cut should just meet the outside of your line you have marked from your measurement for accuracy.

6th: Do not Over cut: It is better to undercut then file or trim than it is to over cut and have a big ugly gap!

7th: Marks should match blade: Depending on what blade you are using to cut something the blades width or cutting area should match the marks almost exactly. That being said the reasoning is that you will always cut exact if you never see visible marks after and as you cut. Also a big misconception is that you should have bigger marks, THIS ACTUALLY REDUCES ACCURACY, most human eyes can only see to about 1/2 of a mm so there is some error when cutting with a big line as a marker. It seems as if its not important but just because you cannot see it doesn't mean it will fit properly after cutting.....

These tips and tricks are not all my knowledge many of which were learnt and taught by knowledgeable Framers and Wood workers with years of experience..... Enjoy!

If you would like more tips or in depth knowledge or pics send me a PM! thumb.gif

Dude, it's because of you that I'm even considering my first case mod. I got a free case when I built a system for a customer. It's a cheap and nasty no name brand, so I"m thinking, strip that baby down, spray it black and red, put cut a perspex window in the side and fill it with my A10 Build. I'll use a CLS, since water cooling parts are hard to get here but I figure if you can do what you just did, I should at least start somewhere.

Also, my dad always tells me, "Measure twice, cut once". He's said that to me since the first time he taught me to do anything with my hands. If my build comes right, I'll make sure I send you the link.
