Thanks!

What sleeving product did you use? I'm thinking of getting FTW PC's v 2.0 sleeve, it looks really nice from the pictures I've seen. Will be sleeving it in white and red.

As I own it, only I can tell you is that MDPC's sleeve is by far the best that exists. Everybody that have it, are agree!
It's a little bit expensive but is high quality sleeving.

You can check it out here

Ok, haven't been posting for a day or two although I have kept reading.
I'd like to thank SW3D once again for the advice on painting and all the inspiration. Now I know exactly what I need and want to do smile.gif.


Next week I'll be painting but I also want to take the HDD cage out to get the smaller one upside down there. I'm at my dad's right now and will be here for another week. He's got lots of tools (at my mum's we haven't even got a drill -_-) and he agreed to lend me the thing to take the rivets out. Thing is, I can't seem to find a video of someone taking it out and putting the small cage upside down. Could anybody help me out on that please tongue.gif ?

Oh and another thing which really bothers me is that the plastic stick located here: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
700
just doesn't want to come out... all the others do but that one seems stuck. It looks like it's too thick and shouldn't even be there in the first place. Any idea why that is ? Did that happen to anybody else ?
(the pic was found on page 1020 or something near there, it's not my phantom).

thanks.

thanks.

To take the rivets out, just use a drill. Get a drill bit small enough to just fit inside the rivet hole, and start drilling. Use a LITTLE bit of force (you're not trying to push it out, you're trying to drill it so it detaches.)

Once all that is done and your cages are removed, lay the case on its side and place the small cage where you want it. Place the drill bit in the hole that's already there on the cage and drill for 1-2 seconds to make a small indent.
Take the small cage out now.
Get some WD40 (this creates friction, and prevents you blunting your drill bit, friction is good for drilling through steel) and place a VERY SMALL amount in the indent you've created. Drill, slowly ramping up speed, and use gentle pressure. Should take 5-10 seconds to get a clean hole.
I used a size 39 drill bit, and used the flat 36 screws that come with the case to slightly stretch and thread the hole when mounting.

Hope that helps.
