    I think I'm the only person in the UK that hasn't got their gasmask yet.

    Now I'm really worried.

    W00P! That's looking amazing!

    Enermax fans are so moddable! I've done mine up with solid copper rims rather than the stock aluminium. :naughty:

    Anyone know if switches on a backlit pure can be modified without soldering?
    I'd kinda like to try whites and a stiffer spring, but only if an airfix unclip and clip kinda process

    Nope, all the LEDs are soldered which means you can't remove the top of the switch without desoldering LEDs. IMO I'd rather desolder switches all day than do a couple LEDs

    my poker had a couple white switches, they weren't all that. Kind like blues but a softer tactile bump and much quieter click.

    Just a toned down blue switch tbh, the clickiness wasn't much to speak of at all nor the tactility.

    Thought the springs in whites were stiffer?

    May have been so actually, the board had about 3 white switches and the rest blacks so that fact was kinda obscured.

    Sample of prices at a local shop here. Most likely not the cheapest but one of the more reputable shops. Sim Lim Square is the place where all the good and bad IT shops have gathered, it's also where you can find just about anything IT related. Unfortunately some shops regard a white caucasian male as a fat walking wallet waiting to be lightened.

    A large number of shops there provide full price lists (updated daily) for most if not all the items they carry.

    http://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/priceLists <--- signup required though.

    If you can't be bothered to sign up, just let me know. I can just pull them for you when i get home from work. Darn place is blocking all the file hosts.

    i have a parcel waiting for me, but i have to wait 25 hours before collecting :(

    i suspect it's my parcel from mdpc-x, but it could still be something keyboard related :)

    Gigabyte Avia Osmium is made by iOne. I would stay away from it personally. There are better board that is very similar. Perhaps take a look at Cougar Attack.

    You have to use a good amount of heatshrink to grip the sleeve. I could use short amounts of shrink, but when the sleeve pops out after 3 weeks, people wont be very happy!
