What is your shipping like to Canada? I was looking at an order but sending an email et al seemed like it would be a waste of your time just for a quote.

We usually ship First Class to Canada, cost will depend on what you're ordering, a lot of people order u-channel, fan grommets, thumbscrews, those little orders are usually $2 - $3, keep in mind USPS charges more for large cartons, so items like the 24" modders mesh & acrylic sheets drive up postage, $13 - up, depending upon quantity weight etc

Email item descrip, quantity and size, pcbuilderATmnpctech.com

@ gingerbee, Thank you for your support! I ran across HWC after seeing their video review of the new Corsair Obsidian case. It impressed me enough to write a note about how refreshing I found their approach.

Along with this D-9 project, I've got several other projects. I mod cases fulltime along with making parts and accessories. Hhat I'm really exicted about is the Nvidia ION PC I'm building for their mod contest. The deadline for it's completion is this Thursday. The worklog is hosted exclusively with Modders-Inc, here

Thank you!

Mnpctech has always had a large Canadian customer & fan base. We've been told several times thats theres a lack of e-stores with our type of case mod product. We usually ship USPS to Canada on weekly basis

Back to D-9

Marking off location of the custom window in the 840 left access panel

btw: somebody did order a D-9 rad grill, It fits 2x 120mm fans, 15mm spacing to fit Feser, Black Ice & Swiftech Radiators $40 + shipping, we can make more



Using tape roll to make curved corner



Make first initial cut with your Dremel and cutting wheel, to allow use of Jigsaw and cut the window more efficiently



You have created slot, this allows using a Jigsaw w/ 18 TPI cutting blade





Using a Jigsaw is much quicker than using a Dremel to cut your window


Use a rounded side file to debur the jagged edges of the new window




Notice the window location doesn't reveal the drive bays, this was intentional.
