I have now had that chair for almost a year and its still in excellent excellent condition.

nice! I'll definitely keep my eyes open for one when I'm out and about. but for now I'll just keep my $200 duct tape chair. lachen.gif

Does anyone have suggestions for a replacement PSU filter? I've been looking around for the stock Tempest Evo filter, and it appears I've thrown it out after my last-clear out of my room frown.gif Ideally I'd like a replacement from NZXT, but i'm unsure if they'd ship to UK. Failing that, suggestions for custom replacement? Space isn't an issue as I will have custom case feet before rebuilding.

I was also looking for one of these filters and called NZXT. I bought my case over 2 years ago and they shipped one to me for free. I even told them that I broke it, so can't hurt to ask.

I searched up Fan filter in UK outlets and fount the following link, The Silverstone FF141B has several small magnets that can be used to hold it in place on the bottom, the size is 140mm though. I can't seem to find the 120mm variant at that store but just in case you have other sources the 120mm model is "SST-FF122".

Thanks guys! I'll try getting in touch with NZXT first, although I'm still unsure they'd be willing to ship to the UK for free! Failing this, the fan filter with magnets seems like a good idea.

I wish there was a way I could Install a handle on the Tempest, Now that I have a 280 Rad up there I can't see any possible way to attach a handle anymore. confused.gif

Edit:
My case officially weighs 81.3Lbs or 36.8Kgs so a sturdy handle would be really convenient. lachen.gif

Drill out the two top rivets in the back and put a handle there.

Are you sure that it would hold 80Lbs of equipment easily? I figure it would bend the frame really quick doing that, plus all the weight would be off center and make holding it by the handle really awkward.
post #1749 of 2487
Honestly I have no idea but judging by how the frame is constructed it is one of the stronger points in the chassi as there are many parts that come together there. As you sated your case is insanely heavy so your worries are warranted and even the tempest steal frame might not be able to take the undistributed load. I'm not a mechanical engineer so the only way to know for sure is to try biggrin.gif

Edit: If you do try to put a handle there then one thing that is a must is to use washers that are as large as possible as this will reduce the flex and prevent the handle form just ripping loose form the holes.

I don't believe this redface.gif I seem to have lost my motherboard's blanking plate as well! I plan to custom-make one to relace it, but I'm unsure what to build it out of...
