Even then, the texture isn't even comparable to the Di-noc.

4) A jigsaw with an 18tpi - 22tpi metal cutting blade works wonders for cutting. If you have good control, you can even get a nice radius in the corners with it. Or you can use it strictly for the straight edges, and use the dremel for any radius. If you only have a dremel, be prepared to buy quite a few cutting wheels. They wear down fairly quick. The reinforced ones will last longer, but are a lot more expensive.
5) I ordered my u-channel from here. Less than $1.00 a( not counting shipping, but if you order 10ft, it's still the same price as ordering from frozencpu+their shipping cost).

6) PM faMine, I know he just ordered from them, but he had to do it at 6am(California) because they have some weird hours lately due to sickness, or something. I believe they are based in Europe, but not sure exactly.

2) Hmm I think will hold off on the carbon fibre

5) Oh wow I think I'd be fine with like only 10ft of that stuff redface.gif?

6) Hmm alright I shall do this

9) Some people simply use a pair of papirclips. Should be quite painful though.
10) There's 2 kinds of heatshrink if you're buying from MDPC-X or FTWPC, Sata and ordinary.

7) They seem to be outta stock

9) Hmm there must be another way

10) How do they differ?

9) I just bought a kit from MDPC-X I haven't actually sleeved yet possibly Tuesday if everything shows up by then and I dont get to caught up in Mass Effect 3. But what I have learned is there is ways to not use the tool for removing the pins but it adds alot of time and a lot stress in to a already difficult task. MDPC has a tool and so does MNPC and frozencpu.

6-8) Definitely gonna watch these

9) Anywhere I can get one for like $10?


My friend and I will use a jigsaw. He also has a tungsten carbide cutting bit for his dremel, will this help at all?

its gona fit with corsair vegence ram?
and something more
with x79 mobo still is gona be okey? with heatsinks there up to top like ramp4
and with the corsair vegence ram

that's gonna be really tight, if you are only using a 240 RAD then you can turn the brackets a certain way to push the RAD out more away from your MB. my RAD and fans are actually only like a 16th of an inch away from touching my RAM, im using G-Skill sniper series. if you ever wanted to use a 360 rad, you would have to lose the top fans and mount the rad right on top of the case

Well my pc ended up dying on me yesterday,so now im screwed. But cleaning out my case today and preparing everything for my new ASROCK mobo did a couple of modifications that i pick up from here.

Something a wanted to say is that for people that have the side mounted 200mm fan, I've seen some people filling down the plastic on the fan mounts to be able to get a little bit of clearance for the fan touching the cpu heatsink . I figured a way to be able to put it on flush with the panel mesh giving you some clearance and if you have it as a exhaust fan you have the gap between the mesh and the fan..

Just giving my 2 cents to the community ;-)

I would like to inform you guys, if you did not know, that you may have an extra year of warranty on your NZXT product. I just read NZXTs Warranty Page on their webiste, all of the retailers need to change the warranty period listed on their website. All NZXT Products carry a two year limited warranty, with the exception of the HALE90 power supplies which have 5 year warranties.

Sorry for the double post, does anybody know where I can find a reference 6870 by XFX? I would like a V1.0(XFX HD-687A-ZNFC) cause it is the genuine reference(which is what I have right now vs V1.1 which does not have the AMD label on the PCB. If not, what do you guys recommend for a 2nd 6870? I have been looking at the Twin FrozrII from MSI, and possibly an Asus 6870(will have model number later). Based on what I've seen, XFXs quality has slipped, and they've even changed PCBs on reference designs. I believe it was just posted on this thread not long ago. Take care guys! blong48

p.s. Im brainstorming my first mod(s).

Hey guys, so our last contest was a dud, not entries. Was it because you guys just weren't interested or there wasn't enough time for people to get in their entries? Would you guys like an extension? If not, any ideas for our next contest? Please provide input smile.gif

I think a lot of people were too busy. I had some great ideas for the contest but couldn't complete me entry. There was one entry by Kenny! He won biggrin.gif

I'm definitely still into the idea of the contests though.
