Thanks for checking in and commenting whitefiretiger!

 

I've been watching the entire time and realized i hadn't said anything lol.

 

Figured I should pipe up as it lets the builder know people are interested.

@xenkWon, Try Ebay for red rivets?

 

The spec you want is 1/8" diameter with Gripe range of .092" - .125" for Computers, http://mnpctech.com/case-mods-gaming-pc-liquid-modding-custom-computer-mnpctech-overclock-cooling-fan-grills/pop-rivets-for-pc-chassis-cases-copper-black-silver-countersink/

 

@whitefiretiger, Thank you! appreciate the support! I also re-sprayed the front bezel grill to match the case.

Same honeycomb pattern I'm going with my case mod  :) - Are you planning on using any fan filters with that grill or do you think that would be sufficient?

Also I think I found a good "part number" to go by when looking for rivets with a grip range that would work with computers.  "#42 rivet" seems to be a standard a lot of rivets are falling under specifying 1/8 diameter with a grip range of "0.062 up to 0.125 inches". Tried googling "42 rivet red" and got back a number of hits that all seemed to have the same specs :)

I ended up ordering the 1/8 diameter 1/8-1/4 grip red rivets and just tried one.  It worked great and had a tight grip, the only downside is how long it stuck through the other side.  Oh and they were steel so it took a little work to get it back out :-x

 

All-in-all it should still work.

Yes I am enjoying it.  I just find myself rarely playing games anymore and that's half the reason I like to have nice computers!  I'm going all out on the sanding and going over everything.  Going to take a bit longer but I don't have a computer to put in the case at this point so I'm in no rush.  The only thing I have to worry about is getting everything done and ready for painting since the weather is going to start getting cooler out.  Although it will be less humid so I guess there's a trade-off.

Thats cool! On Saturday I received my DDR sticks, 32GB of Corsair Vengeance. The sticks were Black, so I hit local home improvement store and found a great aerosol substitute paint for the Porsche Gulf Racing Blue, it's Harbor Blue enamel paint by Rustoleum. I'm using these to create a DIY video guide to painting DDR heat spreaders, too!
