That's how I have faith in most measurements, but not in adding any new rivets. I'll have to reread your method when its not three am. Just a question, is the 7" supposed to be a 5" (3,4,5 triangle), or am I visualizing this wrong? In terms of your idea, I wish I was still at school where I have a poster printer at my disposal. Also, watch out with the image that was posted earlier as it is a simplified version of the side panel and neglects a large chunk out of the left side.
See what happens when I stay up too late!
You know how long it's been since I built a bridge??
Yes, you snagged me, corrected the original post.

It's the measurement of an unequal triangle to get the 90 degree of the square. The measurement of an equal triangle will get the 45 degree of the square. From there you have to use Euclidian geometry to find the other angles.

So, to check myself and refresh my memory I looked it up.

Here's the example of the using the measured triangle and calculating the hypotenuse of the lines, i.e. the 1,2,3 or as I stepped on my brain back there, the 3:4:5 method.

The "other" [magic triangle] is the 5:12:13 method but the army doesn't allow you to use calculators in the field, sometimes you have to write it in the mud so they emphasise the 3:4:5:. This guy shows you how, it's halfway down the page, you'll see the unequal triangles: http://www.anvilfire.com/iForge/tuto...yout/index.htm

Then, to keep it in your head for when you have to erect a building there is the Euclidian Geometry as presented by the Masonic Trowel. You're looking for the 47th problem of Euclid which also happens to be, halfway down the page. Oh, try not to stare at the swirling numbers when you move your cursor, it's an old engineers trick to get the new guys to vomit. http://www.themasonictrowel.com/Arti...the_square.htm

BTW, measuring in milimeters is not just because it's more accurate but because almost everything computer is metric, i.e. your side fans are 120mm, not 4 5/8".
Now I'm really going to bed.

I have a crappy 8400GS with block aluminium heatsink. The specs for the pump are: 75 x 54 x 66mm (LxWxH where else can I put it? @MlbrottaRN What do you use to secure your Harddrive?
That pump/res combo is nice, but it wont handle very much resistance, what are you planing on cooling with it and how big of a rad are you planing on using?

I used the 5.25" too Floppy drive bay adaptor and attached 2 screws too it and just mounted it in the top-most drivebay.

And the mod I've done too mount the Rad in front was done by removeing the HDD-bay and then removeing the mesh that the fan was mounted on not the crosshair in the front (though i did remove that too reach the airfilter)

And the HDD-suspension

what do you mean by resistance? I'm cooling a Q8200 at the moment and I want to reach a 2.8ghz mark. I know that it won't reach that high but I want to get watercooling now cus I might get an AMD 965 X4 or a six core.

how did you get the converter upside down? I tried and it won't get into the 5.25" bay

is it possible for me to shift the HDD bay a bit towards the motherboard? I don't think it will get in the way too much. I have the fan mounted on the other side of the front (behind the bezel of front panel) so I just need to move the bay 2 or so centimetres to the left.

Will this work?

what he means is the bigger the radiator the more resistance will be created for the water to pass through hence needing a better pump and bigger reservoir

Thanks guys for the kind words. I keep thinking that I could have done way better job on the wire management if not for the massive amount of cables on the EarthWatts PS. I moved it over from my previous build and sleeved it, but I'll probably end up replacing it. I wanted to add a 5770 so that my 5750 could have a friend, but it would be pushing it. Probably go with a Corsair HX in the near future.

I would do this before doing anything else.. Look down at my Signature block. Not my Rig but right above it and there is a Link there to a website that you can add all your stuff that you project to use and it will tell you how much power you will need. The new GPUs that you have are really power savers unlike their 4xxx brothers. That 5770 is only pulling 17 to 20 watts at idle where my 4870X2 was pulling 125 watts at idle.

How much Power Does my rig need. Press the link and fill out all the stuff you have in your rig and see what it says. Add the 5750 too. I am interested what it says. I know it will be close but I would be interested in the results it tells you.
