    As far as I know lexan is worse as far as cracking and splintering goes. You may ask someone who has worked with it though, I only have experience with acrylic.

    I love the case dude, keep up the good work :thumb:

    can anyone confirm that statment? If lexan is stronger, why would it be more likely to crack under stress?

    ive seen someone smack lexan with a mallet, and smacked it HARD at that... and no smash or cracks or anything... but ive also heard it scratches very easily to :) just the pros and cons, if your careful there wont be any scratches :)

    Cutting without cracks.

    I had the same sort of problem and I might be able to help. I ended up trying two different methods of cutting to avoid cracks, and they both worked well.

    1) Rough out the hole with a reinforced cutting disk with your dremel. Do not use full speed - that will just melt it (the plexi). Throttle down until the plastic cuts, but does not melt. Finish out the edges with a sanding drum on the dremel (also on at mid-speed). Work slow and careful.

    2) Much quicker: use a hole saw but clamp two thin pieces of poplar or pine or some other soft wood on both faces of the plexi. Drill a small pilot hole in the wood first so you can "line up the shot". Apply pressure VERY SLOWLY with the hole saw and only take a little at a time. (so apply a little pressure, and then back off. Repeat. After a few seconds of work, give the saw a bit to cool off. Don't melt the plexi.) The wood acts as a kind of a buffer that keeps the face safe from the blade, and also absorbs some of the vibration. This way you don't add a lot of excess vibration and heat. Make sure you are using a hole saw with a pilot bit.

    Is it just me, or does this mod look a little dangerous. Is the wire in each end of the resistor isolated so i doesnt short circuit.

    I dont know much about these kind of electronics, so im a bit ignorant
    :confused:

    The mod on my motherboard 1)stablizes the voltage that goes to the cpu 2) makes the voltage more accurate: when I put the vcore at 1.4v in the bios it is 1.425-1.44v in windows (versus without the mod it was more like 1.285v to 1.35v)

    As to the safetly of the mod... 1) I have the legs of the resistor above the board (not touching anything on the board itself 2) I hot glued the legs just in case after taking that picture... so its all good.

    Ok, here is an update...

    [​IMG]





    here is how setup looks right this minute.... I have many of the wires zipped typed to the case, and so I have to keep the case close in order to start up the pc... then if i want to work on the case, I disconnect a few of the wires and get to it.

    Use the search function for the laptop screen thingy as it has been a question answered 100s of times on these forums.

    Mod looks ace btw.

    could someone explain to me the two circled areas in the pick below.... i dont understand where to put the wires. I bought a 50k pot and a 100 ohm resistor, but i dont understand (from that diagram) how to connect them.

    You should have a 10k pot and a 100ohm pot to start with.

    No, you need to use the components shown on the diagram.

    To connect the pots, connect the end pins as shown as the ends of the squigly lines on the diagram. The centre pin is connected as the arrow going to the squigly line.

    You wont be able to use a laptop lcd. Read the electronics forum.

    I realize that, but Im wondering if could just use the lighting (the cathod tube that lights the lcd from behind) for something in my case.... anyone know the voltage?
