post #4451 of 23525
Some Q's for some people, in case didn't see my previous post just need some pointers:

QUESTION: for the people who have full dismantled and painted there cases.

I have the case down to a shell now, just need to deal with taking out the rivets next, besides finding the right size hex key, I can't figure out how to paint the mesh in the front side panels, the vertical strip, Other then spraying absurd amounts to get all of the spots, but is there anyway to take the mesh off without destroying the plastic rivet type things that holds it on or???

Also for painting, In my case white, How do I have to go about painting the outer metal vs the outer plastic differently so they appear the same? , Primer on all, no Metal paint on the plastic oorrr?????


And finally the little click lockers for the 5.25 Bay do I just really have to slide them forward.. Well pressing them REALLY hard, haven't been able to get them out yet, don't want to damage them, nor slice my finger open when they finally give.

And for Cutting Rivets, Just metal Snips or?

For the rivets, just get a drill and drill them out. They'll come out easy. Just so you know for the future, most of the people that follow this thread read all of it when they get a chance. Your post won't go unnoticed, so no need to bump, especially this thread. Very active.

Q1: I cut off the plastic rivets and took the mesh of. Then painted it and put it back using a little bit of high strenght glue (or something else sticky )
Q2: Primer on everything, most primers (for example Motip will work on both materials).
Q3: Watch this clip, then you will succeed Q4: I used metal Snips

What stopped me was the fact that I couldn't do a top ps mount without removing the upper fan. I spose I could have kludged something up to move the fan forward by 3 inches, but it would have looked kluncky.

Also, I linked you name on the first page to you webpage!

EDIT: One more thing, the plugs on the 4890 are DVI. You will use those too hook up your monitor.
Thanks for the name. I found out that I can connect 'em with a converter.

The real problem is memory. Both mine and the computer's. I can't do much about mine cuz I got a thing called "pump head" which is permanent damage to both long- and short-term memory caused by being on a heart/lung machine for too long and not re-warming the heart when it goes back into the chest cavity. Happened during a quad bypass...that didn't work out very well. Ahhh, hell, it's in the past I'll just try to forget about it. I spose I won't have too much trouble doing that.

Now the 'puter's memory. I wish they'd stated that "Registered memory" was required by the Tyan mobo. That way I could have bought the right stuff the first time. Now I've got the proper dimms on the way, although that's set me back about 3 days. Oh, well. It'll give me time to run the cables nice and tidy-like. And I can get something done on my 400 other projects.

Just another day in paradise.

Sorry to hear about both of your memories! Yeah, that registered server memory is rarely used so it is often not mentioned or overlooked.

Sorry as well about the memory, but after some time it can get somewhat better. One of my best friends has brain damage, and severe memory problems, been around it, it can get really tough, get a small support group for your offline stuff of friends and family and the HAF community can help remind you of technical things that may slip your memory from time to time

As far as ECC Registered memory, this is not a 100% of the time deal, but as a general rule of thumb, if you are looking at anything Marked Workstation/Server/Xeon/Opteron/multi-Processor you can expect to be looking for that type of memory.

I will have to look up your board, I love Tyan products, my old system is one, my new system is Supermicro, can't really go wrong with either. What is the overall goal with your system? And are you planning any fancy cooling solutions?

I just bought myself a HAF 922. I was wondering how the 230mm fan will fit on the size, even though it's only supposed to take a 200mm. I searched the thread but didn't find any clear answer.

Does anyone have a picture of a 230mm fan mounted on the side of a HAF 922?
I was looking to buy one from the CM store since it's much cheaper than the 200mm fan.

I doubt it will fit by default, but if you just drill some new holes, it should fit no problem at all. It's really only a matter of the screw holes, and if you have a drill, holes are no problem.
