    Question GPU both mounting holes were stripped out and now screws won't tighten

    I stripped out the mounting holes of my case and now the screws can't tighten my GPU in place, they still hold it in though just not tight enough. I have a few questions about this: Is it safe to leave it like this without doing any damage to the GPU or the PCIe slot? If not, will leaving my...

    [SOLVED] Hi! I just wanna ask if it is possible to install an AIO Cooler backplate on a case that has no hole in the backside

    I recently bought a 120mm AIO cooler and I realized my case is very old and it has no space for cable management on the back and I thought that it would be impossible to mount the backplate of the AIO at the back of the motherboard since the case has no space. Is it still possible to mount the...

    Question Where can I get a glass case side panel that looks like this?

    Where could I pick up a case side panel made of glass that looks like this? The prebuilt model is the Dell XPS 8940. It's kind of a weird shape, it has a lip at the top and bottom that clip onto the case. Here is some pictures, thank you in advance. View: https://imgur.com/a/HLqso99

    Hello, Recently I bought the NZXT H510 case and bought the 2 pack of corsair 144mm X 25mm AF140 Blue LED case fans.
