In other words, you're looking at making two vertical support beams to compensate for the removed section?

Im going on around 6 hours sleep in the two days so I don't have much thought to offer back to you on this right now. Your workmanship is excellent so I figure if you're lacking horizontal stability or whatever your creative engineering (there's the politically correct term tongue.gif) will be able to get you across that bridge if the need arises.

Hello guys!

Can I join the club? I'm gonna post some pics when I get my cam back this week. :3 I absolutely love this case!

Also, I've been searching but I can't find a pic that confirms if the Megahalems would fit without removing the top fan if I mount it blowing to the rear. redface.gif

Much appreciated if anyone could confirm this. biggrin.gif

If not, then I might just grab a V6GT when I upgrade to Sandy. smile.gif

>>I hope this isn't a violation of political correctness but I'm very good at afro engineering. biggrin.gif

Ok, I seperated this into two parts... Just cause! OK! No, LOL, really, because everytime someone says something about Oak, I have to say.......

offtopic.gif
Did you know that the British Empire, when it was a worldwide thing. Was such, because, not of thier sheer numbers (they're weren't that many & the Chinese always beat you there), not because of mecanical genius, (they were no more advanced then the rest of the "civilized" world, guns, cannons, ships, armor) not even because they were the best strategists (they were extremely good here though).

The British Empire that ruled much of this planet became so strong because of a tree! That's right, the Oak! They built ships out of this mighty tree (stripping most of the country in the process) and because of the strong nature of the wood, when hit with cannon balls, intead of sinking, the ships would crack, splinter, dent, etc., etc. This gave them many advantages, not only in sea battles but in being able to sail around the world to find all these back-axed countries that just begged to be dominated!! rolleyes.gif If Columbus would have shopped farther North to get his ship building materials, we could all be speaking Spanish right now. doh.gif No Habla English Senior!

The second thing is the political correctness of that statement. I couldn't have said it nicer! I had a company commander (a 6ft 6inch African American guy) Captain Camp, who made it his policy that every officer in his company would have a drivers license for every vehicle in the company. Not long after the 5th army in Europe adopted the same policy. Anyway, after he left, the next guy was very sensitive about political correctness and we all used to say "What's up boy?", didn't matter what race you were. He had a cow! He posted a notice saying no man would be called by that designation. Right away we corrected ourselves & started saying "What's up Girl?"! biggrin.gif

The drives already go in with the cables to the right side of the case, the non-window side.

I had no problem with mine, but I'm pretty sure that my MB socket sat down and to the front more than most.

Give us a picture and sign up Mate...look through the pictures in the first few pages to see about whether something will fit.
