You could try using a junior hacksaw blade(just the blade between your fingers). I have a dremel but was thinking of going this route rather to advoid over cutting the plastic.

Just tried Crysis with no AA and I only get +-15 fps better(45fps) than with x8. I tried x8Q and it brought it down to about +-19pfs. There is a huge difference in the visuals with AA on

Thanks, I was thinking the same thing regarding the cabling, especially after looking at all the amazing work being done here on the forums, Maybe later tonight I will tidy it up a bit

I used a dremel, but from my old model car days you can use a utility knife and heat. Using new blades (for sharpness), heat the blade, it doesn't have to be red hot as that will instantly melt the plastic and make a bigger headache to deal with, just hot enough to easily score the cut. Do this several times in the same place. then you should be able to bend the piece back and forth until fatigue in the plastic does the rest of the work. Then you can clean it up with a file.

This post is simply to point out that our fearless leader, General Enigma, is the proper and genuine soul to be in charge of this magnificent thread. Always kind and never demeaning even to those who on occasion have shown they truly deserve it (myself included). I'm quite sure that no other in this club has the grace or patience and especially the dedication to keep this a well oiled and smoothly running machine. I doff my hat to you sir and look forward to many more posts from you. To E!

I second that

I just made my own drive bay fan holder Hope to use it to mount my CM R4's on the Corsair rad





I used a old CD rom case. It can be slide about 1cm back into the bay (incase the watercooling pipes need a little extra)

Nice job! Rep+ How did you countersink the fan holes?

I used the dremel with a steel cut off wheel and a steady hand
I even tried to line up the existing holes in the CD rom case with the holes in the bay itself, I came short by about 2mm so only half the screw hole shows

I was wondering if anyone else noticed a drop in hard drive temps after cutting the plastic cross hair out of the front cover ? It could be me, but I am sitting at least 2-3c lower than before. Can't wait to cut the mesh out over that 140mm fan

My fiance said she preffered the cross hair on and doesn't think I should cut the grill out because she likes the honey comb effect
