case broke

Hi,
I have a case with those two side plates and I bent one of them a fair bit. I was wondering if you can buy parts like the side plate without having to buy a completely new case?

Hey, Adam...

It's rare that you are going to be able to find a place that sells case parts, however it is not impossible.  My suggestion is that you locate a local "recycled PC" store that carries used cases & see if you can locate something similar to what you already own.

I wouldn't get my hopes up, however, as there are literally thousands of different case styles & parts are usually not interchangeable.

You might just give in & get a new case, given prices have dropped so low over the past several months.  I've seen full towers with 450w p/s installed for less than $70 in my Northern VA... can't see that they'd be much higher elsewhere.  Check www.pricewatch.com for other suggestions.

Regards,
EW

Take it to a local sheet metal shop, and ask them for an estimate for repair. It should be a few dollars, but I doubt that it would be more than $15-20 and may be as little as $5 or 10 depending on how badly it is damaged.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Well since its bent - why not consider doing a Modification on it - time for a picture window - all the rage to see whats really inside intel or not?  - www.cyberguys.com or just about any hardware site has the kits.  A bit of dremel work, a template and a kit, bingo - cool case.  Maybe even put in one of those neon lights.

Just a thought.

why not bend it back? If the tangs do not fit any more, you can always attach it with duct tape.
It will give it post modern look!
