Lowfat,
See what Performance PCs will do for you regarding the cracking of the lexan.
Perf. PCs may bend the ear of the manufacturer on your behalf.
Suggest an alternate design so others don't have to experience your frustration.
Perf. PCs may have that panel available from a damaged package.
Send them a link to this thread. hint hint

I think I am going to buy 3 of the Silvestone ones NCIX has. I bought some other filters (Startech) from Dazmode when I placed my order expect they won't fit on a radiator since the fans are too close.

I am not going to worry about it. I could have just drilled out the holes but I wasn't thinking.

Nice hardware (again) Do you have some kind of connection Lowfat? I am always seeing you post really nice builds in the "Post your ______" threads, and this one is no exception. Open benches are hard to make look super good, but you managed to make this one an exeption

No connections. Just have a rather bad hardware addiction.

Too bad about the cracked rad mount. I suspect they are drilled with a #6 screw in mind, not one of those thick fan screws.

Possibly. But they don't even state what they were meant to be used in the instruction manual. It is also odd that they didn't have metal threaded holes punched in them like the rest of the parts used (including other fan mounts).

EDIT: Well it looks like something is wrong. Board isn't even powering up. I sure hope that the waterblock isn't grounding something out somewhere.
