Haven't touched it - except to post that I ordered the case - in a few weeks, but I'll be doing box shots and a lot of ready pics over this weekend... maybe... the weather is supposed to be nice, so I may be on my bike instead.

My problem is I'm stuck & torn between a new mountain bike for this season, a bunch of parts and upgrades for my Jeep, or all the water cooling parts I want for this. Not all the same cost, but still, I could only probably justify the bike and WC stuff, and then have to let the Jeep stew... rolleyes.gif

Thanks - T

take the watercooling stuf
becos.of what i know is that the mountain season has not begone

Yeah, sadly I can't get it at my place, or my place of work... I'm going to have to contact CL to see if I can have it redirected by them, because it can't be left at my place.
Otherwise, the only option would be having it held at a FedEx shipping hub or Print & Ship location.

Always a bummer... thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Thanks - T

Well, here in WV, this coming weekend is basically the opener for fair weather, but I also ride trials, so I can do that any time, and that's the bike I'm replacing / upgrading with the new purchase.
Makes it hard!

Fedex is really easy to work with. They have a lot of approved locations to drop it off at. Any Kinkos will do as well as affiliates. I had to use their drop off service many times when I was in grad school. My apartment didn't have a front-desk man. You can even get them to reroute online. I got to know the Kinkos people really well haha. UPS was hard to work with as was USPS.

Got my Asrock Z77E in today and requisitioned a 3570k from my hackintosh. I'm so torn on radiators though. I like the Alphacool, but I do not like the gloss finish, plus the ST30 only has 2 ports. I'm thinking I'll do a XSPC EX240 with multiport for the top and an Alphacool XT45 for the front. That way I get a drain spot on the alphacool (rotated with spouts at the bottom) and a fill port pointing up on the EX240 plus room for push/pull for both. I'm not going pedestal so I needed room for pump+res as well otherwise I would go UT60's in the pedestal.

I'll sand the Alphacool and paint it satin black to match the XSPC. If the RX240 had more outlets then I would go with it, but I need the drain port that the alpha has. Too many decisions!

Darn it, that puts it off even further away.
I could get one now. But I'd have no money for any other parts. It would suck up my entire budget. tongue.gif

Yeah, if you go hardcore, with drop-ins, radiator mounts in the flex bay, then all the parts to make all that work, you're way north of $350, like mine. blinksmiley.gif

That's what's given me pause. I'm wondering if I should go with a bigger build with SLI capability if I'm going to spend that much money on a case... thinking.gif

Don't like your Prodigy? I mean, you already paid for one case...
