Make some practice holes in something similar, and use tape to keep it in one spot I think it would hold the drill steady sort of no? example from here. http://www.overclock.net/t/441651/full-log-antec-1200-window-mod I have to make some serious cuts lol and get that grommet edging to avoid sharp bad looking edges.

there isn't a need to worry. Its really easy to mod, and if you mess up you can always sand/ primer/paint again. I'd just man up, let them balls drop down and drill some holes.

Grab some scrap sheet metal from your nearest dump, transfer station, or scrapyard and practice once or twice. I'll assure you it's easy if you've used a drill enough before.

they come in two different versions. Performance edition or Quiet edition. The performance ones are kinda loud at 35dba, The quiet editions are darn near silent.

I use the performance editions @ 7 volts. Best of both worlds, i can run them full 12 volts and increase performance or i can run them at 7 volts and get silence.

^That's pretty funny. i guess good parts tend to get used a lot right?
post #10680 of 16055
Here is my build! Im pretty new here, but I just got the Midi R2 and I love it for its compactness and modular configs. Sorry for the crap filter and random smudges and the mess of colors.. It hurts my eyes too, but I didnt want to use the stock black cables even though it would look tons better. Haha. Im just trying to see if I can get a blue sleeved cable kit for cheap, I dont want to pay 75+ for it. frown.gif Also, waiting for the H220X from Swiftech to drop so I can go full water. biggrin.gif
