The way I post pictures to the site is by uploading them to Photobucket and then posting the HTML link to the pictures in an

.

You can also upload them to the site directly using the "Image" button in responses. It's a picture of a house next to the paperclip (attachment) and the movie clip (movie). I hope that helps! And subbed by the way!

I've replied to your PM; you may want to try again once you get access to a system with a browser newer than IE7.

Yes Mandrix everything will be sleeved have a big order coming from MDPC-X (actually 6 orders as he had to break it down like this to ship it.), Already bought about 100 foot of para cord in various colors trying to see what looks best. and i promised my 4 year old daughter that i would used her 4 favorite colors (this makes wife happy and this good thing as you know) the colors she wants me to use are green, purple, orange and Pink. case is going to be white so i am going to slip some white and black sleeving in their also.

Aquaero's are going to be for fan control for sure, mabe pump also. but i am going to use 12v relays like you use in the car for my TEC chiller and use the Aquaero's to turn the TEC's on and off depending on temps. these relays dont use but may be .01 amp so should be no problem that is why i also purchased a Multi switch to go along with the 2 Aquaero's LT and the 4 poweradjust 2 USB I have.

Multiswitch is on or off control according to AquaComputer. So i will use this to control my TEC Chiller!!!!!

Well that is the plan and hope it al works out.

been doing research for about 8 months so i think i have it all down but testing will prove it for sure...

Sounds like you need to keep it here after you build it and use it as a dedicated cruncher/folder. That way you would have reason to build another one lol. Definitely excessive insanity.
