the connectors are threaded so itd be a pain, think it might jus be that the thumbscrews arent fine enough, as lookin at it most seem to be the same thickness

All cases should have standard size screws and threads. You say that the case is fylly acrylic then it should be very easy to srew in even a bigger size screw. The thread will be formed automatically by the screw.

i know the ones your on about because i have some. they are thinner than regular case screws, they are more on the lines of thickness of the screws that go in floppy and cd drives. i just can;t remember where i found them.
