my dumbass cut the hole for the radiator before i realized you lock and slide the panels. i was used to my old armor which pops right on

this case mod is just practice for my armor though so im learning from my first case mod

i might dremel off those little metal spacer things and epoxy the panel on with low grade 5 minute epoxy. would fix it and i could keep it shut easy when i have it configured how i like.

also i have a crack in my plexi. i need some polycarbonate solvent. notice also the res is crooked form too much stress from the tubing. it is way too stiff.

i learn from these things

my armor will be 5 times a better mod

Mount these to the fans on the inside of the case..

EDIT---Here is a picture of the inside window of my case....

Edit again... BTW, to use the filters I used you will need to modify one of the mounting plates so you can get the covers on. other wise they are to close together. Just slot the mounting holes a little on one of the mounting plates... (I took mine to work and used a Bridgeport mill, but you can get the same effect with a dremel)

That is a nice kit, bit if you plan on drilling holes you should also get 2 of these and some angled fittigns other wise the tube will probably get damaged against the side of the hole, and it will probably look alot cleaner.

Also, use colored tubing instead of colored coolant, it have had (atelast in the past) a tendency too clog up blocks and etc

That kit will probably cool your cpu past 4GHz or the mobo aswell, but that's pretty much it, I whouldn't recommend putting a GPU on there aswell later on cause they put a hefty heatdump on the loop

You know those tight "stockings" the ladies use? just cut a pice of those. Think they're called Leggings or Pantyhoses

Well since the side panel comes off so easy, i used non removeable filters with rubber fan screws to minimize vibration. When all is said and done, it does prevent alot of dust but nothing stops it completely. Im cleaning the dust filters every week with a quick spay of canned air and cleaning the case monthly because i have so many fans lol.

Epoxy would be messy and permanent. Maybe drill a few holes in the lip where the side panel tabs go onto the case and use some self tapping screws though the side panel.? At least you can still remove the sidepanel if need be. I'm sure you could think of something not so permanent without trashing the case. Have you thought about putting the original IO panel in the top window? Is your loop just for the cpu? If so, i would get a smaller res, shorten those cables at least in half and do another top window. Mounting the pump in the 5.25 drive bay as well. Using uchannel around the hole you cut in the top panel would clean it up as well as mounting the window inside the case rather than outside. Heck thats an interesting problem, oh the mind wanders..

If you take a look here http://www.caseking.de/shop/catalog/...:::26_154.html look at these DEMCiflex Round Dust Filter. They are magnetic. Perhaps they can stick to default fan screws?

They actually have a magnetic back piece so you can use them with windows. I was going to buy the square ones but ya those will work fine.

shortening the cables will be slightly problematic since the stress will ruin my window on the top. i wanted the res to act as a filport pretty badly >.>

all in all this was pretty much just practice for my armor for what i have in mind for it. i want to do a window like that on my armor with an inverse t-virus res in it. i can easily fit my rad anywhere in that monster case lol.

in anycase i plan on sand blasting my armor, cutting many holes, powder coating it if possible, it will be awesome

i like your self tapping screw idea. i might just remove all the metal guide things, the lip, and then screw some self tapping screws in the side, then the back screws in

as for the tubing problem, im going to get some nice elbows and softer tubign then try to make my loop again lol.

anyone know if home depot has polycarbonate solvent?

edit: oh yeah it is impossible to mount the indow from the inside.
