My System Specs

Default Tools of the Trade (pics to follow)

Well, we all know the raw components we love to show off on our builds.
But what special Tools do you own to get the Job done right?

For myself, I own 3 Unique Ones for those tough builds.
And I have access to the purest water around for WC solutions.

I'll post Pics afterwards, but I own;

Fluke Laser Thermometer
Omega CFM Master
MasterCraft 6degree Tight Confine Multi-Screw wrench Thingy! (I'll post a pic when I get home to better portray this.)

What cool tools do you guys use?

Mines Yellow. Works like a charm, even on those pesky long-to-reach screws, right Sky?
