Got mine earlier today too, I just don't like the fact that I ordered the really shiny blue when my system is all silver.. lol.
Other then that, its sweet. But it turns out, my PSU wasn't holding back my OC.. my RAM is.. lol, Now I think I'm screwed for going any farther. I can barely afford to buy the pump for my up and coming water system.. As a matter of fact.. I'm in debt for buying the PSU! lol

what i mean is theres this metal thing at the corner of the plexiglass where u screw in the screws that will hold the plexiglass siding.. god its hard to explain i'll jsut buy the damn pre-made case and take that piece out and ask home depot if they have it, and if they do ill return the damn case ehehehe..

customer return sure is a great policy hehehehe....

I thought the Acrylic/plexi cases were epoxied together? Oh well, you should be able to use any kind of aluminium or metal angle iron to hold the sides together, since it is a DIY project. You can get different kinds of angle iron from Lowes or Homedepot, cut it what ever size you want and drill the holes.

Ok I did some research and found out that the corner brackets are not metal, they are actually Acrylic Cubes. You can find some here ---> http://www.tapplastics.com/shop/prod...54112033532503

Here is where I found out this info, http://www.virtual-hideout.net/revie...se/index.shtml, looks like the exact same case to me.
