My System Specs

Never mind that building things is fun. :D

And you are complaining about this?
Stop QQing like a pansy fairy and build that bitch up all badass!

The shipping box is huge, it's double boxed.. I saved nothing by paying $50 US for shipping.
I really wish you lived by me MacJunky, I would have payed ya $20 if you like to put things like this together. I like building computers, but building cases with sharp edges sucks.

The website clearly states : "Photo images show: Finish - Anodized Black, Big Window Side 1, Solid ALU side2, Triple 120 side3 (top)."
Nothing about added fan grills, fans, custom 5 1/4" bays. Hell, one could assume it comes with a power supply.

I am complaining, because I thought I bought a finished product.. and now I have to go out and find 120mm fan grills and 5 1/4" bay covers to match this case.. which is going to be near impossible because it's so custom. For a guy who's overspent on the SR2 project already, it's just another kick in the pants for something I should have never done.

The case is built, but it's far from complete. If I can't find the fan grills locally it'll be expensive to buy them online ($2.99 a fan grill? lol.. x16 of them) and I have no idea what to do about the 5 1/4" bays.

Thanks for the link Alpine, that's the same one Ben at MM sent me.. and I just realized it's on the front page. However the Pinnacle 16 can be orientated about 4 different ways, depending on where you want to put your PSU / motherboard tray.. so when I was trying to put it together, it didn't help much (also the fact I was pretty tired trying to figure it out) It took me a few times to finally get it setup right.. it does seem pretty easy - but once again, tired.

If you bought a PS3 on ebay from a reputable company.. and the picture showed a PS3 with controllers, games, power cord and everything.. and had no description. If you were shipped a bare PS3 with nothing else.. you'd be pretty pissed off too I bet.

I'll learn to manage my anger, when people learn to manage their stupid.
