Yea.. I think you're right, 3/4 inch. I remember putting two in a mod not too long ago. Those are nice. I have the ones with the LEDs inside them.

Hey everyone,

I'm new to this thread, but I've been reading it for a while. You guys have done some nice work here. I got my a05-N about a year ago, and it's been really quite great. I gave myself a little project this weekend (I'm a law student in DC, so I don't have many tools or much time, unfortunately) and decided to paint my case.

Before:


First I stripped it down:


Then I painted it (used a Krylon indoor/outdoor flat black spray paint):


Then put it all back together. This time with new shorter/black SATA cables and my new GTX460 that came in the mail yesterday:



Let me know your thoughts (I'd like a nicer, more expensive CPU cooler, but I'm waiting another year till I upgrade my CPU/MoBo/RAM. I'm going to keep this case though, I love it.

Specs:
CPU: Core2Quad 2.66 OC'd to 3.44
GPU: GTX460 SSC+
MoBo: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P
RAM: 2x2gb G.Skill 1066
HDD: 500gb 7200rpm Seagate Barracuda (most of my storage is external)
CPU Cooler: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
PSU: Kingwin Mach 1 700W

you were correct, it was 3/4". The new bit worked great(it should for what i paid for it)


The top switch is a red ring 22mm, the lower switch is a red dot 16mm. the red ring will be on w/ the power. I havent decided on the red dot, hard drive activity light or only have it come on while you press reset.


Its supposed to be really nice tomorrow, ill see if i can finish off the case cuts. I have more goodies coming on monday.

the graphics cards will blow air out of them like usual, but the bottom fan will be sucking air in

since hot air rises and cold air falls the air being sucked in will be cold air
