Acrylic/Plastic cases are the absolute worst to have.

They attract static, dust and fingerprints like crazy.

Kudos to anyone who uses one.

1. Got the case from clearpc.ca.

2. It wasn't "too much" but it was "a lot"

3. Thanks, I'll take that as a complement. I think acrylic cases are pretty badass and as long as you take care of it, it can be a really sexy case.

Agreed. In terms of static you can always take care of that.

Thanks Bo!

Anyhoo... I'm really bored today so I'm going to see if I can re-jig some things to try and fit a 120.2 rad inside the case as opposed to that horrid piece of ugly that's hanging on the outside.

Default I need some help!

Can anyone tell me if it would be ok to cut a little bit off the left side of this adapter's pcb? I need to cut it so that it fits.


The very left side, by the circular hole


This is really important. I hope I get a response soon!


Better pics:

Really depends on how much is a little bit. It looks safe to me but I definitely would wait until someone with more knowledge makes a suggestion.
