I like that window.

 

I picked up a fairly good idea up there one how to be able to water cool and have case handles (thanks to ogre).

 

You will just have to wait and see (I wish I still had my job so I could get a christmas bonus) if I can get some money and parts rolling in

I just had an Oil Change by the local Wrench this morning.

 

A sign at the shop said the following.

 

You Only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape.

 

If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40.

 

If it moves and it shouldn't, use the tape.

 

:D

So I just moved back to Minnesota after several years in the Navy. I would be very interested in a meeting sometime. Extreme Overclocking, case modding, whatever would be fun.
