I use kitchen scissors, they seem to work fine with a nice clean cut

lol why? everything is nice and leak proof, I can literally shake the tubes and spin the computer with no problems

plus its nice and quiet, I've got sleeved fans (not ball bearing) so its even quieter, the loudest thing in my case atm is the pump

When I made the window for my case, I used 5 drill bits in stages to drill each hole. It can be quite brittle.

Updates, I didn't get the acrylic backings cut yet, I was busy over the weekend and I might this weekend...

however, I did upgrade my actual PC! I made the switch to intel!

I bought the following from Newegg:

DFI Lanparty DK P35 Series

MSI 8400 GS (Backup card, it was only $25 open box)

2GB Crucial Ballistix Tracers

Intel Pentium E2200

yeyah!

I just overclocked the E2200 to 3.7 stable, I can get it to 3.8 and probably get it to boot at 4.0, but temperatures get unmanageable

I'll post updated pictures of the rig tomorrow morning after I finish up cable management, it looks pretty decent now, but will look better by tomorrow
