Take it downtown... biggrin.gif

So you already have the 360 and the only spot left is the 240 mount? Otherwise I think a 240 make more sense

I dont want to spend more than $30 on a drill that I will only be using once. So which one of these do you think performs better? I will be drilling passthrough holes through the midplate of the SMA8, and I want the cleanest possible holes.


Drills are the most ubiquitous tool around, unless you're already over 70, you'll have uses for it for many, many years to come.

If you need to cut costs, you're much better off in the long run to get a corded model.

There's a B&D for about $20.


Under no circumstances, in this day and age of modern battery technologies, do you want to get a NiCad powered cordless, especially if you only expect to use it a little at a time / once in a while.

If you really need a cordless, at least get a NiMH for a little more up front cost, but a much better usable lifetime.

I find it funny that he said in essence a quality tool is better and you call that elitist
There was no insult in there other than calling myself ignorant. I don't consider the term elitist to be a negative because it really isn't.
My response was triggered by his multiple attempts to try and show how his opinion was the only right one, and his snarky sarcastic starts to every post, that isn't "polite" in my opinion.

I can agree with that corded statement smile.gif
But why no nicad?
The drill I previously referenced is nicad picked it up for 35$ in 2005 and use it once or twice a year and it still functioned perfectly the last time I used it a few months ago.

You won't mess it up man!
You shouldn't need to drill it just mount it up like normal and that end will just stick off

No, sorry I guess I worded it weirdly. I have a 360 rad but a 240 mount. It fits, but the part of that radiator that doesn't screw in hangs a bit and I wanna fix that by drilling holes. Problem is, I don't know where to drill the holes in the mount accurately, as it is just a solid chunk of metal. Or am I just wasting my time and just get a 240 rad? I'm only cooling my CPU.

If you have or buy a 360 gasket from PPCs you can use that as a template

NiCad has a bad memory recharging state. You have to keep discharging it all the way down, before recharging it again.

I myself prefer a Lithium Ion battery for my drills.

Here's a good read NiCad vs Lithium Ion batteries for drills.
