Seems I recall something about them being a problem, and CL and AC each saying it was the other's issue. . . .

For anyone else who has fitment issues . . . .

I had to sharpen the 90 degree bend on the side plate tabs where they go under the screen, and also slot the holes so they slide in further for more side clearance.

Then I had to slot the holes in the flex bay brackets, to have more than one A6 align with the next one, as the A6 is also a bit higher than spec . .

Overall a major pain, but it's done now and they go in and out smooth as silk.

Is silk smoother than butter then?

Actually, The poor design of the Aquaero's mount is the very reason we made these:

I don't think there was ever a blame game (not that I'm aware of), but it's evident that it was an issue with the mounts themselves (I tried shoving one into a Lian Li, that was even more fun). So, Jim and Kevin fixed that by making the non-conforming bracket mounts so that they could go in smoothly.

If Shoggy did send out new mounts, I sure didn't get one.

I had sent him a PM about this and that's when he sent over replacement mounts straight from Germany without any charge. He had said they had caught the error quickly but going by batches means there's still plenty of them with original owners.

Wooo Hoooooo . . . . .


The Diva Infinity Midplate turned out as awesome as I had hoped . . .





















I finished putting the mirror back panel in the case, just need to cut the cable management holes tomorrow, and peel the protective film off.

Should really pop with the midplate all lit up

I live in the Islands, work in a casino, like a bright and colorful Caribbean décor, and hate dark, plain, or industrial looks.

Besides . . . I needed something to show off the power doors biggrin.gif

I really like the attention to detail and craftiness in your builds. Very entertaining to view.
