  1. Couldn't find any countersunk at home. I would go with that Bolts Plus deal myself or see if anyone else has them of course before hand. I had an old M2 years ago, I don't recall ever 'needing' the screws on those 2.5" HDD sleds. Does the M4 require them or its flopping around kind of thing?
  2. That's not too bad of a deal at all. Any luck contacting the other stores I mentioned? They probably have an old peanut butter jar full of them haha.
  3. Oh, by the way you can change that amazon link to .ca and get the Canadian price, plus shipping etc. Shows 6.29 + Free Shipping for me when I do that. However, you're still looking at a wait.
  4. Let me take a look when I get home.I used to have a few of those servers, and I'm a hoarder for those screws. I will also check her at my office if we have a bunch. The screenshot I posted are not philips head screws, but I thought those might be the ones you were looking for.
  5. Orion One, Horizon Computing, Saigontek, just to name a few. Spaenaur might be a better store then bolts plus for an order in. How many do you need?
  6. You might have some slight luck at a local computer shop. There are a few local to myself (Waterloo) that have some old servers like that kicking around and might have some of those screws. Could also try a fastener type shop. Doubt they will, but I've been surprised there before.
  7. Agree 100%. I'm really torn on the case. I think I am more leaning towards the Fractal Design Meshify. Just due to me being familiar with their quality, and currently they are pretty great in terms of price.
  8. I always have a hard time remember CM has actually stepped their game up with quality products it seems. Would they have one of the best AIO's on the market now? Visually, I am ok without RGB as well - hence why the LED being broken in my H100i hasn't bothered me that it's a nice shade of green now.
  9. Only reason for the AIO is aesthetics. I love the look of them really. I don't even have an argument on sound anymore haha. I will take a look at the H500 and the Meshify, thanks!
  10. So I recently obtained a solid upgrade on my CPU, Mobo and RAM. The reasoning largely around these 3 item was around price. I was able to secure all 3 for a grand total of $400 CAD. I just couldn't pass up the offer. What I had before: CPU: i5-2500K Mobo: Gigabyte P67X-UD3 RAM: G.Skill 1600mhz 8GB DDR3 What I moved to next: CPU: i5-8600 (Never OC'd the 2500, so didn't bother looking for K series) Mobo: MSI Z-370A PRO RAM: G.Skill V 16GB 3200mhz DDR4 The rest of my peripherals remained the same. Case: Fractal Design Midi R2 AIO: Corsair H100i Random SSDs and HDD GPU: EVGA 980 FTW I think I want to update the case and the AIO next. I don't play a huge amount of games anymore so I don't feel like I need to update the GPU. I also want to upgrade the AIO due to the fact my H100i feels just greatly out dated. It's a warranty replacement, but the LED's were done within months and I can't get the fans to work properly with Corsair Link (they rev up and down constantly, once I remove the software they are fine). Any suggestions on those are welcome, or anything else I maybe missing. Thanks!
  11. Well the 1155 socket is quite dated. It's still solid, so people are going to ask a bit for them to see what the market does.
  12. Well maybe we need to know the exact games the OP is playing. It's pretty rare for a CPU to demand more power than an 4690K
  13. either or are not going to assist you in what you're looking to do here. the i5 has always been the best main stream CPU out there, the i7 will deliver more processing power for more processor hungry applications. Games are not processor hungry, they are GPU hungry. I can 144hz game on my i5 2500k, so you will be fine.
  14. I like this idea, it's neat. When I built my plex server I was actually using an older IBM X series server. But the problem I didn't like was that dual CPUs eating so much up didn't give me the best passmark score for streaming remotely. Thus, I went with a nice low power i3-4150 that puts out a solid amount of processing for plex and a box that was quiet and tucked away somewhere to access remotely. Also, I couldn't use 3.5" drives in mine for storage, and I didn't feel like shelling out a lot of $$ to switch it all to 2.5". Sorry, can't answer any of the questions you have though. Good luck with your build!
