I found this on Amazon:

Would I need to sand it first?

something like this

fine cut is what your looking for.

Did you try the 3M Fast Cut Plus Perfect-it III™?
From what I've seen on their website this is their latest product.

Also ZeVo, could you post some feedback if you use the 3M stuff?
I'm considering the same for my case (my aluminium-made external HDD has left some tiny traces on the top of it) - but I wonder if it will work as good on the Core 3000 since its uses a grainy coating.

So I just found out that the XL is getting discontinued, for the XL 2. The XL has 4 x External 5.25" Drive Bays & 10 x Internal 3.5" Drive Bays while the XL 2 has 4 x External 5.25" Drive Bays & 8 x Internal 3.5" Drive Bays, which is a downgrade IMO. Does anyone know a case that is like the XL, that is easy on the eyes and has plenty of hard drive space? Or retailers that still carry the XL?

I might actually leave it he way it is.

I'll try contacting FD to see if they'd be able to sell me one.

A good loop is a loop that has minimal crossing.

great, you got it all in there.. looks like a great start!

just to let you know it isnt necessary to have a rad before or after a component. but
i'd run some benchmarks on your routing and then go for a change up to compare
and look for minimal clustering of tubing.

you might look into this for a flow chart:
res->pump->280RAD->lower GPU fitting->240RAD->CPU->res
turning the upper rad will allow the run from the GPU to rad short, rad->CPU short
and less cluster behind res.

Well I have a problem.

I built a new computer-the one in my sig less than a week ago. Whenever I install the computer in the case, it refuses to boot. The fans briefly spin and then stop. I have to disconnect the power cord and reconnect it just to get a brief fan spin up. The weird part is that I uninstalled everything and it runs outside of the case: if I re install the components, it works for 6 hours or so, than goes back to the weird fan spin up. I've never had a problem like this before, and am not sure where to start.

Parts:
Fractal Arc Midi
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H
i5-3570k
Hyper 212 Evo
Seasonic X-650
MSI GTX 670 PE

Any advice would be really appreciated smile.gif

Press your 8 pin 12v rails in HARD, worked for me.
or you might have a short, aka, mobo is touching the case.
