    My wallpaper thread.

    Thank you. It's perfect now. You guys are awesome. Now if I could just get the taskbar to auto hide I'd be golden. This seems to be a common problem with Nvidia SLI.

    My wallpaper thread.

    Thank you for that. The logo is crystal clear now but I still have one problem. Now I have 2" black bars on the ends of the far left and right monitors. Apparently because of the bezel correction my resolution is 6040 x 1200. Can that one be fixed?

    Caselabs SM-8 Modded.

    The un-named Caselabs modified is somewhat complete. I'm sure I'll think of more things to do to it. But it's done enough to charge admission to open the case door for viewing. I did this mod because I wanted my graphics cards oriented vertically. I wanted my cabling on top so I can access it...

    My wallpaper thread.

    Is it possible to make this a widescreen background @ 5700 x 1200 ?

    My Caselabs Thing

    The only things left to do is make the custom LED lighting. I ordered the sleeving so I should be able to work on that this weekend. And I want to cut some type of window in the front door. I am thinking if the Nvidia logo. It doesn't give a whole lot of view of the inside though. But I am...

    My Caselabs Thing

    Here are the pictures of the top as promised. I would like to add this, another reason I wanted the I/O cabling exiting from the top is I had a mess in back of the computer that I couldn't manage. Now I can manage them better.

    Thanks for your compliment. I thought about that bracket I made to support the rads together. I was going to drill holes through it to allow some airflow. I didn't think it would matter much though. I didn't make brackets like you suggest because I plan on covering that front with a piece of...

    Cosmos II- Skyline GT-R-

    That thing is looking badass. You definitely have some artistic ability. You turned a juvenile case into something with class. I like it.

    My Caselabs Thing

    The tubing is stuff that I got at Home Depot. It is flexible and cheap and they have a lot of sizes. It is a lot harder than the Tygon tubing. I found that the Tygon tubing got cloudy rather fast. Within a month the stuff looked terrible. This stuff kept it's clarity. I got the top from...

    My Caselabs Thing

    I got the machine up and running, in fact I'm using it to write this. The cooling loop worked out most of the air in just a few hours. I used two full bottles of Primochill Clear and some Mayhems Green Dye. Not a whole lot of clear tubing used but just enough in the important locations...

    My Caselabs Thing

    Hi Everyone. I got a bunch of new pics to post. I started out by taking every screw out and cutting them down to custom length with the Dremmel. Looks 100% better. I won't post those pics. But then I started with the radiators. The screws that ship with the rads need washers so I had to...

    My Caselabs Thing

    I got a few more things done today. The power supply bracket was a real bear because I had to make two. I got more than half way through the first one when I decided to check it for power supply fit and mounting hole alignment. It was to big. Argh!! It's a lot of work. But I finally got there...

    My Switch 810 Build

    So you only paid $20 for that case? Makes me feel like a complete idiot for spending $500 for my project. Very nice job on the vinyl wrap. That case looks like it has a lot of water cooling potential. Keep up the good work.

    Cheers Nation. I'm feeling pretty good about things right now. This is the first time I've attempted a case mod and it actually looks like I know what I'm doing. Of course You Tube is the best school for higher education. I learn all the tricks for anything I don't know diddley about from...

    My Caselabs Thing

    I used a regular black paint at first but I didn't like it either. It was just luck finding the textured paint this morning. I didn't have my glasses with me and I wasn't sure what I was buying would even work. I'd like to see some pictures of your build if you have them.

    My Caselabs Thing

    I did a lot of work today but I only have three photos to post. I first drilled and tapped all the holes to secure the mid plate. Now that the panel is secured I checked for flex. There is almost no flex. So I don't feel that the U- Channel brace that Caslabs put on their panel is needed. It...

    My Caselabs Thing

    Yes. You are probably right. I chose the SM8 because of the reviews about how awesome Caselabs cases are. Also when I start to install the components you'll get a clearer picture of my design. I wanted my radiators at the bottom. I wanted to see both sides of the graphics cards similar to the...

    My Caselabs Thing

    Well It's been a long day. I knew by the way things started today that it was going to be slow. I didn't get as far as I thought I would but I think it's for the best. Where I'm at now I have a decision to make. Whether or not to cut out the section of the mid panel so that there would be that...

    My Caselabs Thing

    Day one of the mod. I tore the case apart. My plan is to orient the motherboard panel so that my graphics cards face vertically. This is turning out better than I thought. It has simplified the design of the cooling loop. It allows me to put two 420 radiators in the bottom of the case, where the...

    My Caselabs Thing

    I have a pretty good rig now but I also have the itch. I just can't seem to get r done. After I spend tons of money getting my computer one way I see things the folks post on forums and I end up dissatisfied with what I've accomplished so far. So I bought a Caselabs Merlin SM8. I had...

    More U.S. Teens Killed Texting While Driving Than Drinking

    I think the law should stat that phones should be turned off in the vehicle. For the person driving that is. I see the stupid moves every day and it's usually because the driver has the phone in their hands. I too am a cyclist. Two very well respected good family men ( cyclists) I knew...
