Looking good! Although not enough blue
OMfakken gawd. One tight Phobya res hey. Recommend vaseline on the
O rings, perhaps a little on the thread too may help undoing next time
MNPCtech CNC acrylic front panel + full Corsair RGBtard setup...
Please don't hate me.
That's more colourful than a striped awning.
Not the worst response I've had thus far...
Rerouted GPU power to go down into the grommet at the bottom of the case, and added G.Skill Trident Z RGB memory...
Oops wrong forum
cleaned up all the parts in my loop, running it with some sysprep type stuff in the loop.
testing the hardware on air to try to find the cause of an issue that caused the tear down.
Damn bad luck, lost two cards by the sounds of it ?
Nice upgrade opportunity though I guess
I have the same res as the one that broke on you (alphacool i think?), going to treat it very gently now, what happened that caused it to break like that?
Yeah I was due for an upgrade anyway, so it's not all bad
The res was a phobya balancer.
I'm not sure if it broke because it's 5ish years old, or because I used some cleaning chemicals on it that might have reacted with the acrylic.
I've watched acrylic tube simply shatter, and been able to just crumble it in my hands, by pouring metho down it to try and shift a stain. Never, ever clean acrylic tube with metho . Not sure what kind of material the phobya is made of but I think that's the best guess.
ah yes, i think only kerosene and naphtha are ok on Acrylic. With my preference always being naphtha (Shellite by Diggers @ bunnings). It is literally the best chemical for cleaning - about as aggressive as isopropyl alcohol but way cheaper.
went from an mITX RVZ01 to a 600T
I drilled two holes in the front of my case...
I don't have the right tools to mod.. trying to do something like this
I've got the right size card now ready to go in, and the power supply is on the way, so really need to cut this thing.
Any tips? Not going to buy a dremel, might as well buy a new case if I do that!
Dremel = nice neat, professional job you can be proud of, and a cheap Ozito knockoff or whatever will do the job just as well and use all of the same bits a Dremel does, so you can buy the quality consumables. Mind you, a Dremel 200, with a little kit of accessories, is only 70 bucks. Thats just a 2 speed variant, the more expensive ones are variable speed, and the low speed on a Dremel 200 will stall as soon as you try to do anything with it so its effectively a single speed machine. Still very handy.
You can pick up an Ozito for 30 bucks, but you will need to buy cutting disks with it, there are none in the Ozito kit.
New case = probably about the same price, or more, depending on which case you use.
Old case, not done neatly, doesn't cost money, keeps looking at right back at you every time you look at it and saying 'you tightarse... '.
A Dremel/knockoff is a tool you will never tire of, and always have multiple uses for. A case is just a case, it only has one purpose.
Buy a Dremel or a Dremel knockoff.
Buy a Dremel knockoff and a pack of genuine Dremel heavy duty cutting disks. I've hammered the shit out of my Ozito and the Dremel disks last longer.
Okay, might be the way to go. I think i actually had a rotary tool somewhere, if I can use the dremel cutting disks that might be a win.
I'm not worried about the cut looking messy, I'm happy to put some rubber U channel stuff there and then put the front of the case back on. Won't even see the damn thing!
edit: Found it. It's a DSE Rotary Tool. Looks like i'll need to get a dremel attachment and then a cutting disk. Any recommendation on a cutting disk?
5 seconds to change a disc...
EZ lock mandrel
5 pack EZ lock cutting disk
Hey Ratzz, thanks for your help, I really appreciate it
Grabbed a kit with the EZ lock attachment, and 10 cutting discs for everything. Just tried it out and it works a treat. I'm still very noobish at cutting though but it's straight enough. I can file it down, right? Hopefully next post will be a pic of my 1080ti wedged in an SG05
added a PSU shroud to my 750D
should be done... for now.
