wow Warf, you dont need me as an inspiration in acrylic, quite the other way 'round mate. That orange looks sex!

Too bad that you had a bad Delvies experience but I think youre a bit premature on the warning you gave to "stay away". I have used them for all three of my mods so far and have not had an issue (uv acryl for Jessie's Gumdrop, Black acryl for Intelli, and all of the acryl for Greenie-poo) The only issue I have is that their shipping form has no address2 field (apparently they have no concept of "apartment #") so when I order I have to then email them and tell them to include my house's Suite address, because its in a development of same addresses

anyway I understand your frustration with the package shipment issues, but beyond that the project looks awesome mate

Thanks Cattle.

Here's the skinny on my Delvies experience:

I'm in the military, and as such, I have two homes. One in Georgia, and one, my "permanent address" in Florida. My billing address is linked to my check card, and is my Florida address. My ship to, obviously, is my Georgia address. Pretty much every vendor you've ever heard of and some you maybe haven't ... none have had the slightest issue with this. I order a lot of crap on line, and until Delvies, I always got my packages delivered without incident.

Delvies, I made two orders a day apart. One they sent to my billing address, one they sent here. How? I made a little account with them. The information didn't change. There is no way I could have accidentally flipped the two addresses. (edit: ok, maybe they don't have a little account thing? Regardles, that was the order I got a confirmation on, and it did list my ship to address... as Georgia.) They screwed it up. That's a 400 mile goof that would cost me money to fix, if I actually needed the material. I have to assume it would cost me money, because they have not responded to a single one of my emails, and have not answered the phone whenever I have tried to call (twice).

Their shipment tracking also appears to be broken, so I have no way to verify if I ever order from them again whether or not they are shipping to the correct place. Heck, I never even received an order confirmation on my second order I placed with them. It just appeared on my doorstep. Luckily, that was the one with the acrylic for this project.

I'm glad you have had good experiences with them, Cattle. Sincerely. Their selection and sizes are excellent, and their pricing is more than competitive. That said, I will use them in the future only if it is the only place I can get what I'm looking for.

Maybe if they return an email, I'll change my tune. But for now. Delvies Plastics ...

I understand mate. I'd much rather use a better setup like TAP or whatever but at roughly 6-8$ per sheet less than tap on 1/4" acrylic, Ill go with Delvies for now, altho that address thing bothers me. Befoe next project that requires acrylic I will reassess my options

thanks mate and rock on

It's all good buddy. Hey, if it isn't broke, don't fix it.

Like I said, Delvies has a great selection and good prices. If they work for you, more power.

Thanks curly

Working acrylic is no different than working any other material. You just have to understand its limitations and use the right tools for the job.

As far as wallpapers, I'm afraid I have been slacking. I haven't been saving the high res shots as I go along.

I'll start keeping an eye out for the better shots, and keep a hold of them. (To be totally honest, I didn't think I had taken anything worthy of a desktop as of yet )

Thanks Christo.

As far as your switch. Hrm. That doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Does your switch have separate sets of terminals on the back for the LED and the actual power function respectively?

A momentary switch is just that, a momentary connection of a circuit. In this case, it just shorts the two PWR pin outs from the motherboard. It's a fancy way of just bridging the two pins with a bit of metal. (Which is how I am powering up my system at the moment while its out of the case).

The LED on the other hand, that should be an always on connection. If you hooked the terminal outputs from your switch to the appropriate current, the lamp would light and stay on as long as your PSU was supplying power. For these switches, they draw that power from the mobo PWR LED header. So, in theory, the switch's LED should only be getting current when the mobo tells it to... In other words, when your mother board thinks the system is powered up.

As I understand it, you can't have them hooked up backwards, as the LED wouldn't light at all then.

I'm probably jumping ahead of myself. Assuming you have separate terminals for the LED of your switch, you do have them hooked to the PWR LED pins on your motherboard, correct?

Small update.

Excepting the tubing holes, I wrapped up the interior trim panels. I can now finally say I'm ahead of where I was when I decided to start all over.

Pardon the dust, "shop shots" as it were:











On the immediate to-do list: Tear everything back out of there, fashion a final trim panel for mounting underneath the pump tray and PSU, rework the PSU chassis to properly hold the 140mm Xigmatech fan I shoe-horned into it, perform some minor surgery to the factory chassis to better accommodate the modified PSU, and sort the modifications I'm going to need to do to the pump tray to properly mount the pump and reservoir assembly.

<searches around for something caffeinated>

Getting close to actually installing some of my new hardware.

Kinda.
