    Re: which case

    Thanks i will look into that once i manage to cut few holes to cover my "uninvitable mistakes"

    Chilledpc offers some nice services i.e. laser etching, acrylic cutting etc not that im gonna use them but increasing number of people want to mod their pc and not many companies offer services like that, it's cool.

    Re: which case

    The rubber edgeing stuff is very handy for hideing rough/woggly cuts, although a file and some wet&dry paper is all you really need to remove rough/sharp edges.

    If no rotary tool is availible then a drill and jigsaw (with a metal cutting blade) is fine, quite a few people prefur a jigsaw for cutting large holes (eg for a window)

    Although I've not personally used any of there services, from what I've heard and seen they are very good.
    Remember that if you want custom windows and paint done you have to ship them the bits of your case that are needed for the work. It's not cheap the finished resaults seem very good.

    With continued digging it seems that the eairly yate loons were high amps but the latest ones are lower amps.
    Check with chilledpc before you order.

    Any update on this cr_rom?

    oh and I'm not sure about the paypal, chilledpc does show meastro and direct debit on there front page, But within a paypal image.
    So might only work if you have your paypal account attached to your card.

    Re: which case

    Hi Pob,

    I PM the guy, Tom, the owner of chilledpc or something and we couldnt' sort out why my solo card wont work so he suggested me to use banking online and yes, that got sorted out at the end.

    My fans and anti-vibration kit came yesterday cause it took that long to clear the payment using internet banking.

    I fitted in 2x120mm blue led yate loon fans at the front and 1x140mm fan on top panel. I used washers and rubbers for every fan in this case and indeed it helps against the vibration.

    But now the top panel gives me grief since sharkoon and yate loon fans are about 2mm taller than nzxt fans and i've used rubbers to dampen vibration, their height have increased and cause difficulty for me to close the panel down properly (it bends).

    If i was going water cooling, i can take that top panel plastic off completely to mount radiator.

    And i haven't managed to cut any holes in this case lol

    Re: which case

    Ahh didn't realise thoes 140mm's were slim ones :/
    25mm thick rather than the standard 38mm?

    This case really seems to be turning into a bit of a white elephant

    Re: which case

    The Yate Loon 140mm fans are only 25mm think so guess the rubber mounts are what makes the real difference unless the NZXT 140mm were not 25mm...

    I wish i had picked up cm-690 now! lol or maybe im just too picky
