As for the thumbscrew, have you tried using a Philips screw-driver on it?  If so, then your next best attempt would be grabbing some pliers and trying to twist the screw out with those.
lol cheers biggrin.gif
I had to use a screwdriver on all of the thumbscrews 'cause they were so tight. Everything went smooth until the very last one doh.gif
I've got pliers somewhere, maybe I'll twist and pull with those for a while. If the screw won't come off, I think I'll just grab an angle grinder and take half of the case off with it devil-smiley-019.gif

edit: Pliers = no good. Think I'll just nuke it off. I'll probably call my pops first since he's a wizard in all things difficult.

edit2: Biggers pliers = very good. Looks like I was right, the threads on the thumbscrew were totally busted.

Now, everything is golden apart from one thing. One of the 3 thumbscrews used to fix the HDD cage/plate is stuck. Stuck as in it won't come off and it won't tighten. The threads are probably busted, so anyone got any idea on how to get the screw off? Would be much appreciated biggrin.gif

Nice one, I can not wait to see the photos of your rig built smile.gif

So I have had my rig up for about 3 weeks now and just never got around to posting the build log but I'll post one of the pics to clarify that I am in midi heaven biggrin.gif

360

Quick question, how do you change your avatar picture for your rig? It defaulted to a picture of my rad and I would rather have the midi case displayed =p

Can anybody help a n00b out with the signature for this club? I have tried to copy and paste it but the syntax is either wrong or I'm not applying it correctly.

NewEgg deactivates products frequently when they are out of stock. They deactivated the Arc Mini earlier this year...and since it was out of stock everywhere else as well, I pinged Fractal to see if it had been discontinued. They responded by stating that demand was higher than expected and more were shipping soon. Sure enough, two weeks later it was active on NewEgg again.

The R3 is certainly due for a refresh, but I wouldn't read too much into its NewEgg status.
