Definitely round off the edges. I personally rotate the tube while filing at a 45 degree angle, 2 quick rotations then a much slighter angle for a another quick rotation. Then I quickly wet sand the heck out of the end. Entire cutting/filing/sanding process takes 5 minutes max once you've got the technique down. Again I promise a quick tutorial with pretty pictures soon, hopefully tomorrow. I spent the majority of my day today wiring all of the fans and hooking up all of the LED's to the remote receiver. 80% of the annoying and time consuming wiring is done. Should finish tomorrow along with new photos. Main time consuming thing left is I have to cut two pieces of acrylic sheet that will go behind the EK plate, then drill holes for mounting LED's in the acrylic. That's my morning project. And finally I received all of my monitors which now need wall-mounted in a surround configuration. Busy day tomorrow. On a side note I just got back from watching Oblivion, I really enjoyed it. Plus my favorite band, M83, did all of the music for it so the score was fantastic.
PS, Ledzepp, I'll get you those fitting sizes I forgot to get you in a PM tomorrow.
PSS, for the guy who asked about fitting 1/2 x 3/4 tubing behind the motherboard side of the case - you absolutely can.Edited by Jameswalt1 - 4/24/13 at 10:10pm
