Yesterday afternoon.
The Snowstang returns!

Does working a 12h shift count as big plans? It should be a big pay cheque at least.  8)

Are there enough 5.25" bays for a hotswap unit?
Also consider long screws and sections of rubber hose if the case came with that sort of isolation.
If you are looking for rails that bolt onto the sides of the drive and slide in, you might want to consider trying to fabricate some from plastic or wood. Metal it you have it and can work it.

Failing that, you might want to modify the case a bit with either parts from another case, or just move one side of the bay closer and drill some correctly spaced holes. I certainly have a habit of adding 3.5" bays using parts from other cases. :P

It all depends what you are working with and the tools you have on hand.

Makeshift slide hammer bead breaker worked super well on a stubborn bead!
The threads of the allthread did mar my rim a bit though, most people would want to put a smaller pipe around the lower section to cover the threads. I on the other hand do not really care because this particular rim has been bent and unbent several times. It is FUBAR and I took the tire off this time to clean out the sealing goo that did not work, before installing an inner tube.
I am not replacing the rim because the tire is also mostly demolished and this stuff is pretty spendy.

why didn't you go with an Impreza?
Looks to me like it is basically the same thing, but probably more available and cheaper to fix.

A Subaru will have a higher resale value but I am pretty sure LP is going to be driving the balls off his car, so resale value does not matter at that point. :P

Congrats of the car LP, have fun and stay safe.

So you bought the tail light for a car? Are you going to put it on your Acura?

I honestly don't care if it has an LCD screen or LED lighting, mainly something that'll last as long or longer then the G15.

One of these should last you a good long while, and is more compact than the regular Classic.  ;D
You can also get this model with a pointing stick, in the form of the EnduraPro.

5:25-ish is the point in the video where you are poo-pooing on keyboards without audio controls.
I have one, and I am just sayin, buckling springs man. Buckling springs.
I had it with me during the LAN party, btw.

Is there anything specific to keep in mind? Is it closeup of the guts itself? Case? Can you use one of the pics you took of my PC from a LAN party?

That cooler is one of the reasons why I did not press my 480 radiator into service until I got an i7 4770k. :P
I could never really justify watercooling my 9950 @ 3GHz even though everyone was laughing at my 125w TDP. It just did so well temp-wise.  :D

That cooler is the Xigmatek HDT-S1283 which I used on a Phenom X4 9950 Black & Gigabyte MA790GP-DS4H for a few years. (some of the stuff I dumped on you) That was a really awesome budget cooler, and with IC Diamond I did not have to constantly remount it! I think it was atop a Phenom II X4 955 with possibly Antec Formula 7 or AC MX2 when you met it.
The fans... I forget exactly. I got them through NCIX and there was some sort of hype about NCIX getting red ones because red was apparently not the normal colour. Someone else might remember more.
Also: mechanics wire, not paperclips. ;)

Either way, glad to see the cooler still in service. :D

*Edit
Google says the fans are Yate Loon. That sounds familiar.
