    questions about cutting case door

    I wish I could speak intelligently about air tools... but this job could easily be accomplished with a 4 1/2" hole saw and a drill. They are a bit pricey, but if you don't have access to one then I would tape up the panel, draw your rectangular cutout from a template and use a jig saw with a...

    LL PC-A05N to fit HD5870 cards ?

    According to 3DGameMan, the HIS 5870 is 11". I just measured my GTX 260 and it's 10.5" with about 3/8" to spare before the HDD cage. So, my guess is no it will not fit without removing the HDD cage. Usually, the 16x PCIe slot is the first one, but if you have another slot below it, and move...

    Thermaltake Level 10 Price is.....

    I think at that price they are targeting the elitist market, or extreme enthusiasts who are willing to pay that much money. That being said, what exactly do you get for $800? Are you paying for innovation, or uniqueness, or extreme cooling or ... ? It's kinda like the "I Am Rich" iPhone...

    easy way cutting through plastics without melting it in process?

    I've never used one but I would think a hacksaw or coping saw would allow you to get a nice straight line. A rotary tool will melt the plastic if you go too fast!

    dugn's Corsair Obsidian Build

    After reading this thread I attempted to take apart my EVGA GTX 260 to paint the red as well but I couldn't remove the heat sink from the plastic. There are some little itty-bitty screws that I couldn't remove. So I got pwned. Was is a PITA for you too?

    Question on Painting a case

    Spray it with 1 coat primer and then 2 coats black. No sanding, go light coats. It'll look real nice. I did mine yellow.

    Case mod services (the opposite of DIY)

    I was listening to The Mod Brother's podcast and they mentioned eMachineShop. Their prices seem to be really low and they offer all the CNC services.

    Build Log – Corsair Obsidian 800D Liquid Cooled Dual Loop System

    Dude that sucks... I have the same problem with my XSPC 360 radiator in my ATCS 840 build. Having not seen your setup, have you tried some of the rotary fittings, or splice some fittings together so that you could make room for your optical drive?
