Just tap it and tap a window if it sounds the same then its glass. Plastic and glass also look different. I was surprised when I figured out my window was glass.

I will do that once I get home this evening. The only thing about this guide, I was not thinking about making one big hole more so a bunch of smaller holes... Either would work Im sure

I'm surprised that the Fractal Design Core 1300 has very little love!

Here's mine smile.gif









Link to build log if anyone is interested. http://www.overclock.net/t/1501431/build-log-fractal-design-core-1300-watercooled/0_20

That's one hell of a setup! love the colours and the style of it. The frontplate isn't a nice one in my opinion, preferred the standard aluminum brushed one biggrin.gif

Removing the ring noise from metal parts of R4, adding weight reduces vibrations. It's stuff used on cars etc. In America probably best known as dynamat. This is thicker = heavier and cheaper though. Black film to tape over still did not arrive but it will hide the shiny aluminum. Don't have window side anyway. Also cut a remaining piece of open cell foam that fits nicely into the unused 5.25" bay. Too bad it's not screwed in but bolted. And the bolts are rubbish, the cage still resonates a little at some of the joints of front and the bay, at least without the foam when I tap on the empty case.






And HDD LED added, new position for power LED and HDD LED, cables secured on switches, it's all flimsy and not be moved around much. Sleeved all cables from the header to one, power & reset switch plus both LEDs.

I planned to give it a brushed finish but I just couldn't ruin that perfect shine

Finally my rig is finished. Im very happy with temps and silence specially. A store mounted it for me so I just had the merit of choosing and paying xD. Hope you like it.

Maybe someone will find this trick helpful.

Not enough cable management loops? Zip ties to make some more biggrin.gif
Would use yellow on all that are hidden but the ones I have are short so only three there. Easier to see and find than all the black that hides.
At least the SSD mounts are used for something as they are useless for SSD mounting.



Putting it in, left the IO panel shield out, didn't like it when it was there and I think it even blocked DP a little since mobo had to be moved to one side of the IO shield, meh.
Extra vent space right over the VRM heatsinks never hurts.
