    Looking mint. How are you handling your cooling/airflow? (the case looks pretty shit for ventilation)

    1 120mm fan at the top to suck in cool air, relying on positive pressure for exhaust.

    I am assuming he was using them to discharge the annode inside the montitor,

    Steps1.Unplug the monitor.
    2.Leave it alone for a few hours. If you can afford to waste a lot of time, twenty-four hours would be better.
    3.Wear rubber-soled shoes (no steel toes) and safety goggles. Take off all your jewelry, especially rings and watches. You don't want to be grounded in any way.
    4.Find a heavy flat-bladed screwdriver with good insulation. A Swiss Army knife is not acceptable.
    5.Find a heavy-gauge wire with alligator clips on the end.
    6.Take the monitor's case off -- and don't forget where the screw goes in. This could lead to embarrassment.
    7.Attach one alligator clamp to an unpainted portion of the metal frame.
    8.Attach the other alligator clip to the screwdriver's metal shaft.
    9.Make sure that neither you or the screwdriver are in contact with anything metal.
    10.The anode is a wire covered by a suction cup. Slide the screwdriver blade under the suction cup until you hear a loud pop and see a blue flash.
    11.Wait for about 30 minutes and repeat.
