I don't currently use a fan controller either. I bought a dozen of the AP-15's on sale back in 2012, sure glad I did.
If you like the GT's, I'd suggest getting some while you still can. I'd get AP-15's, but 1450's are a bit quieter if that's a priority for you.

Might Go with four 1850's and three 1450's then, I've always had a really noisy PC so it would be nice to have a quiet one for once especially because it's in my room.
Will probably head to bunnings today and find a heatgun and want to look for some aluminium sheet for possibly making a custom backplate and top fan grill because I forgot to order both with the rest of my stuff tongue.gif.

Trust me I tried. Bunnings only sell sheet metal which is really thin bendy stuff which is useless really ... I tried to buy some for a front panel grill but it was simply to flexy. You can honestly borrow half of my stuff if you come round aslong as you bring it back

Yep, went to bunnings today and found that same stuff, 0.5mm flexy alu lol. My dad is going to try get me some offcuts from a mate as long as he can get anywhere from 1-2mm.
Picked up a heatgun and some more dremel cut-off's today and am going out soon to see if I can borrow a jigsaw, if so I can get started tomorrow.

Pulled everything apart today and had a nice bit of progress (finally).
installed cpu block:


Installed 770 block:


Put together with some fittings:


I also got around to practicing some acrylic bending today. Much easier than I though but I managed to melt my bend a bit doh.gif :

Wow that looks amazing dude. I'm definitely doing acrylic next time. Where did you get it?

That piece is a spare piece of E22 tubing which I got given a meter of for free from a NZ OCN member, the stuff that I will be using though is the primochill rigid acrylic, but I wish I had ordered E22 tubing instead because it heats quicker and has a much greater ID.

Got some good use out of my dremel and jigsaw today.
First I had to drill some holes in the bottom to mount the radiator brackets. For some reason my drill couldn't get through by the dremel did it easily:



My other problem being the screws provided which were too short to get through, so I had to keep making the holes bigger bit by bit until some other bolts could fit through. As you can see I accidentally put both the mounts where the case feet are so I will now have to find a new way to attach those doh.gif :


Against better judgement I measured up and cut out the top to make way for the 360 rad. I broke a blade trying to cut to tight of a corner and had to finish the corners with the dremel, so I made a bit of a shoddy job of it and am yet to fix it up a bit. Not to worried though as I am probably going to cover it up with a grill:



Also painted some fans, sorry for the bad pic:


Slow progress but I'm getting there. Tomorrow I'll look to mounting the pump and getting my DIY midplate lightbox together. Also I need to ask, how should I mount my Harddrive behind my mobo tray, the SSD will be easy but I'm not too sure about how I should do the HDD.

Coming along nicely! Looking at TJ07 builds again I might have to rebuild into mine

EDIT: I think the TJ07 mobo tray uses M3 threads but correct me if I'm wrong, anyway where can I find M3 screws to buy? I'm not sure if hardware stores would have them or not and the only other place (techworld) has one type and it's also out of stock.

About the hardware mounting there isn't enough space round the back to mount your 3 1/2' drive. Well there is if you don't put the back panel on. Otherwise the back will make it flex. I was in the same boat as you. I just went out and bought a 2 ND a half inch hybrid ssd to replace my 3 and a half inch drive

About the screws I have no idea..

Edit: try these guys. It's near playtech. [URL]http://Www.waieng.co.nz [/URL] that's where I got my m4 thread maker thing. He has lots of stuff I'm presuming he will
