Be careful man, the heatshrink I see sold at most places is that 2:1 shrink-ratio useless crap. I got 3:1 and was wishing I had gone 4:1. The Microcenter is a dangerous place, I have one a 5-minute drive from me in Denver and they get a lot of my money.

As far as I know, there are ZERO shops near me that sell watercooling gear, it's all online frown.gif I wanna see it, touch it, and love it before I buy it....wink.gif

It is nice to be able to look and touch first but safer to stay home and order that way you dont spend as much.

Talking about MicroCenter made me wonder what you would think of my Man Cave???



My Case finally assembled correctly biggrin.gif

I bet you guys are really jealous since I dont have to go to microcenter to have it!!!! biggrin.gifthumb.gif

I did not get half what done that I wanted to get done between getting stuck in traffic trying to get a nice 80mm fan a NOCTUA NF-R8-1800 80MM CASE FAN for the 720 watt PSU I was using for test bench. the fan that was in it was so loud it made my head hurt.. When I finally got back I put in new fan it was just a 3-pin plug simple you would think but it would not work would come on and go right back off. I even had a pump and fan on it and still this happened. I was getting frustrated from lack of progress so I just got the new 0CZ 550watt ZT Series power supply that i am going to use for the TVPC and used it since I will be making custom cables for it. by the time I got this done with terminal strips set up for my test Bench it was 6Pm and time to go home and cook steaks on grill. so so sad but very little progress!!!

SO....MANY...THUMBSCREWS weirdsmiley.gif How many are on the case and pedestals? thinking.gif

I picked some hex screws up to prevent the case from snagging on stuff and give my MM case a sleeker look. I just use thumbscrews on the parts of the case that I open and pull out often, like the motherboard tray and one side panel. And it helps that my wife doesn't know which screwdriver to use to mess around with my case. I hid her wedding band in there too - she could never get to it. Just a suggestion.

I'd love to have a room filled with goodies like that. Again, when you need to liquidate your stock after your build is over, let me know. biggrin.gif

Yes it seems like they are thousands of small screws but it is solid this is for sure.

Seross, is your case assembled in that picture? If so, did you find a way to mount the pedestals on top of the case and do I see the pedestals slightly off center? Or is that just stacking for a pic and you plan to put the peds below the case? Curious.

I'm curious about this as well. One of the pedestals on top looks somewhat off center to me, am I seeing things? Or is it not all the way together with the panels and all?
