so you keep saying
The cost of the case is irrelevent. If you like and can afford it, you might buy it, if you don't or can't then you wont.
(Dons fire proof suit)
I wholeheartedly agree
I could afford it and at the time there were no others hence ATCS200 , I havent been dissapointed
DF what ever happened to tha tarty budget rig you were working on?
Or has that died a death or did I miss it.
Trouble is there not what I've got in mind.
They're both not my bag, freedom of choice!
what about graphics cards.....???? how do you justify 350-400 for a Gforce3?
...because there is demand and there are some people who always want the best schtuff.
(obviously there are the gamers)
Again let me repeat what was said in my previous posts.. it comes down to $$$ and choice. I picked up my PC-60 just when Lian Li jumped on the scene. If I had the amount of selection that is available now (Enermax, Coolermaster, Syhawk or Soldam) my thought process would be different. For the $300 as Dremelfreak pointed out you get pickup a PC7 down here for $180 and a PC67 for about $220.
I always thought Coolermaster's had more metal to them, which is why they cost more. Of course I've never measured how much metal you get, but I'm pretty sure the front of a coolermaster is thicker than the front of a Lian Li..
More metal = more expensive - Worth it? Definatly.
since this will be my 1st alluminum case, i was wondering who all already hase a alluminum case, and if they can be modded easily. will my dremel bits be able to cut though it easier then the standard case?
aluminium is softer than steel, so should be easier to cut up. just don't scrath it because you'll be gutted
its all too easy to scratch a case with a dremel or similar
I've never cut an alu case before (was going to this weekend) however it seems obvious to me that, if you want to avoid slipping and scratching your case, you simply cut it from the inside. non? Then at least if you slip it doesn't *really* matter as much.
Thoughts from seasoned aluminium hackers?
i haven't done any hally b4 KNA but I have done steel and I find its not the cutting disc park that causes the scratches but the de-burring ..... what ever tool you use I find that its easy to slip/skid the tool off the edge.
I cut from the outside in as it seemed safer ?
I'd asume that Kna was reffering to cutting the panels, which are fully removable, as opposed to trying to fiddle about within the case dremmel/jigsaw in hand..
Although I'm sure that'd make quite a picture
only 2 more days till my case will be here!!!! DAMNN i cant stand it!! :rofl: :rofl:
Just a thought
I use a jigsaw to cut; I've said this before.
De-burring I use a hand file time consuming but more controllable. I also have in my toolbox some special rotary files that can go in a drill. These are very good; the one I use is shaped like a vase and makes it almost impossible to slip.
They were given to me by an old boy that was retrying when I was in the boat building trade when I left school. I have kept them with me, since man and boy.
